It varies by your cpu, power supply, and board bios settings. A good heatsink also helps.

The e7500 is newer, but if the 6600 is half the price, then I'd go with that. It all depends on the price. Also check your motherboard's "cpu support" section. If your board is oem by dell, hp, compaq, etc. then the e7500 may not work, unless it's listed under cpu upgrades on the website. In general, the e7500 will overclock easier, but it's not guaranteed.

Alright so i got the E7500 and im running a intel DG41RQ mobo, for some reason im unable to edit my CPU settings in the bios, any ideas? The bios have been recently updated as of 2 days ago and the drivers are up to date.

I use the "del" key on the lower right side of the keyboard, but usually the post screen will tell you which key to press.
