    All available data I can find indicates that running at 1066FSB with DDR2
    requires "overclocking" the G33 chipset vs. its specification.

    So, if I use the E6600 CPU at 800FSB with PC2-6400 memory on the
    GA-G33M-DS2R, how much performance am I giving up vs.some theoretical or
    overclocked 1066FSB and PC2-8500 memory? Running real world applications
    that don't just run in cache, how much faster is the E6600 going to be with
    the 800FSB/PC2-6400 than, say, an E4400 with the same FSB and memory and a
    savings of almost $100 on the CPU and another almost $100 for the PC2-6400
    vs. the PC2-8500?
