Intel's Core 2 Duo E6750 revealed.

Intel's taken the wraps off of one of the four E6x50-series Core 2 Duo processors it first announced earlier this year, which are primarily notable for their new 1333 MHz front-side buses. The one getting all the attention at the moment is the next to top-end E6750, which clocks in at 2.66 GHz and is set to run $183 when it lands July 22nd. Coinciding with Intel's loosening of secrecy, the folks at The Tech Report got their hands on the processor to put it through their usual range of tests finding, not surprisingly, that the processor does indeed offer some modest performance gains over the previous E6700. The real gains, however, seem to be reserved for those willing to go the overclocking route, with Tech Report finding that they were able to push the processor all the way to 3.64GHz, making it the fastest dual-core processor they've seen to date.
Good price, great speed, I think I'll keep a eye on this one.

Theres already quads out. And if you want to know if your motherboard supports it then hop over to the manufacturers website and there will be a CPU compatible list for it.

I'd play it safe and order a different brand. Corsair is always a very safe bet.

I read more through the motherboard specs and all and it just says that it doesnt have the required voltage for other brands of RAM so you would have to set that in the BIOS yourself.

No biggy, i already found the voltage.
