The Intel Core 2 Duo processor line-up is certainly going to expand in 2007, how much we are yet to see. Keep in mind Intel will also have a range of Core 2 Quad processors on offer next year, so this might complicate the buying process for some users. Of course gamers will be more than happy to stick with the Core 2 Duo processors for now, as the quad-core versions offer no extra performance in today’s games. That said, the possibility of twelve Core 2 Duo processors clocked between 1.8GHz and 3.0GHz does make picking the right processor difficult.

Those on a tight budget will go for the E6300 and those that can spend a little more will give the E6400 a miss and move right onto the E6600.
