    Neither....the multiplier is high and will limit its overclocking capabilities.

    Get a 2.4c for $170 and put it at 3.0 or 3.2 and it will always beat the higher end CPUs because at the same clock speed, its FSB is cranked through the roof giving it crazy memory bandwidth and performance boosts. At 3.0ghz the 2.4 has a 1000mhz system bus.

    So basically, 3.0 800fsb vs 3.0 1000fsb.....I think you can tell the winner there :hammer:.

    All it requires is a good board and very fast RAM to pull it off. The best boards are ASUS, followed by Abit, with the best RAM for the job being OCZ 3700 or 4000.

    PS. > My system in my signature is a good example. My relatively slow RAM severely limits me though.
