Magic Man said:Well I'd go for at least the 6600 because of the extra cache.
But you are saying that given everything else the same, a 6600 will likely clock to the same max as a 6700 even though a 6700 starts out faster anyway? I suppose it should since they are just speed binned from the same die and are effectively the same anyway - just the 6700 has a pre-clock over the 6600 when bought...

the cache means very little in real terms at the same clocks
