    I currently have a C2D E6300 and I am going to do a system upgrade. I am curently debating wether to buy a new processor or OC my current one with a new mother board. I have a Dell system right now so I can't OC right now. I am thinking about getting the C2D E6750 Conroe or the E6600 Conroe. Do you think I should use my current C2D processor with a new mobo or get a new one? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    You won't notice much of a difference with that minor change in processors, I'd suggest sticking with the 6300 until next year and see what things look like then. Once you get rid of the dell, get a decent mobo, ram and video card, you should notice a fairly decent improvement, but the cpu is basically throwing away your money for a slight gain.
