If I interpret the E6600 result correctly, it LL tests at about the same speed as a dual-4.2 Ghz Pentium 4. 900-series chips overclock to this range, correct?
I've read many places that getting a 6300 to 6600 speed isn't too difficult, while getting a 920 to 4.0 Ghz (same ballpark for speed) is also reasonably easy, but much cheaper.

Does this mean 900 series P4s are still price/performance LL leaders? Local Fry's has a 915 with board for $139. I think this setup only OCs to 3.5 Ghz, but Conroe plus board will be twice as much. Thoughts?
