I posted about this a few weeks ago but I changed most of the parts. I will be waiting until July 22 when Intel CPU prices drop and hopefully there will be more price decreases by then. One thing that I’m wondering is the e6700 really worth it over the e6600 if I have the money because I probably will be overclocking? Here is what I have so far:

so what do you want help with?
I was looking for any suggestions that could improve performance or save money and I wanted to know if the e6700 is worth it over the e66000 if I’m going to overclock. I was also wondering if it’s likely that there will be price decreases in any areas besides for processors in the next month.
