you completely missed the point.
i think you should buy the K6-2 550 & oc it to 600.
because you can't unfortunately oc a 450 up to 500/550.
In this case, you are wrong.
the K6 2 550 is pretty much at its limit.
the <b>K6 2 +</b>(note the PLUS) 450 will hit 600mhz 85-90% of the time.
I'll say again.
the K6 2 @ 550Mhz that he speaks of is .25 micron processor, the K6 2+ @ 450 is a .18 micron processor. the 550 is not likely to do 600mhz without massive voltage and cooling, the K6 2+ 450 almost always goes to at least 600.
