Intel Core 2 Duo E4300: Affordable and Highly Overclockable
Last year saw the most exciting changing of the guard with processors since the introduction of AMDís K7 core in 1999. Thanks to very solid competition from AMD over the previous few years, Intelís introduction of the Core 2 Duo lineup of processors meant much higher performance at very reasonable prices. In fact, the near-launch availability of Core 2 Duo E6400 and E6300 CPUs meant that for less than $300 you could get performance better than previous generation Extreme Edition and FX series processors.
After the initial Core 2 launch, we didnít see too much more from Intel, other than the late-year release of Intelís quad-core Kentsfield processors. Earlier this week Intel introduced its second quad-core part, the Core 2 Quad Q6600 priced at $851 for a slightly more affordable entry to the quad-core market. While we wonít see anything quite as interesting as the Core 2 launch for a while now, Intel isnít remaining quiet this year when it comes to processor releases.

as far as i'm concerned, E6400 is the bomb
Computed by a Core 2 Duo E6400 (2.13Ghz @ 3.2Ghz) kept frosty by a Zalman CNPS9700 on an Asus P5W DH Deluxe, fed by 2x 1Gb OCZ PC2-6400 4-4-4-12 @ 1600FSB 1:1 and puked back out by a MSI RX1950Pro.
