everyone is getting what they can afford

get what you can afford

if there is only a $3 difference get the 2.4, heh

i mean really, get the fastest you can if that's what you want...

I have a 2.4, and it wasn't good for OCing at all, I pulled it and got 2.8, I have seen nice things done with the 2.53, IMO, I would avoid the 2.4. But make sure it is a B series, not A series, The B series is the 533mhz Bus.:D

I can reach 3Ghz on my 2.4B when cooled very good with a huge ass alpha cooler

otherwise it works great at 2.84Ghz all tucked away in my main pc here with a stock intel hsf :)

I dunno, I had nothing but probs with mine, Maybe my mobo didn't like it, Whatever the reason ?:D
