I am in teh m,iddle of configuring a dell and it costs $250 to upgrade from a 6600 to a 6700. Is it really worth it or should I spend my money on an 8600 video card or adding 2gb of memory.

might as well go to QX6800

That was not the question. I don't want a QX6800.

Sure you do 🙂 Its probably more of an issue of AFFORDING a QX6800

You will not see a major difference from the E6600 to the E6700... I would keep the E6600 and put the $250 you saved into better memory, or video. It isnt that complicated when building a new system, just get the best that you can afford. IF you arent going with an 8 series card, get at least a 7800GTKO

Hmm. Probably going for 8600 GTS is better than getting more RAM and definitely better than upgrading from E6600 to E6700. You could always overclock the E6600 to 2.66GHz (or better) as on the E6700, but unfortunately Dell will not let you do it (I believe it is an XPS 410/Dimension 9200 in UK).

E6600 can over clock to 3.5ghz fairly easily.... 2.66ghz is barely touching an overclock.... in any case, when he was talking about doing this, the price of the 8600/8800 series hadnt dropped in price much, but now, I would suggect the 8600GTS

Isn't the risk of damaging it to high?

There is minimal risk but I can fully understand your reasons why you wouldn't overclock. If you are unsure of what you are doing then I agree.....don't.

Ok, becasue I don't have a clue how to due it. Can anyone provide step by step instuctions on how to do it?

No one can provide you step by step instructions because every PC is different.
