The E6550 is a newer processor which got affected by the price cuts. The 6320 is an out of production older processor which did not get affected by the price cuts.

personaly i like http://www.newegg.com/ better cuz they got more of a selection
also theres a few differences in those
First one is simple The E6320 is OME which doesnt come with a cooler or anything else just the CPU. the E6550 is retail
Second The E6550 is FASTER in 2 ways
one:It is a faster core clock which a lot of ppl on here will say is worth the "extra money" (have noidea y the hell they are the same price so im really like WTF)
and two: It has a 1333Mhz FSB which is better than a 1066Mhz FSB
The FSB is where everything is controlled from which DOES bottle neck
its basically the CPU orders the FSB to access the ram it goes through the FSB first then back to the CPU then out to either the IO or the GPU and etc.
so the CPU is 2.33Ghz but the FSP is ONLY 1.333Ghz so there for has to slow down
With AMD CPUs its HyperTransport which goes directly to which ever it needs

and those r the main differences in those CPUs
EDIT: k now i see the reason for the prices

any Motherboard that supports 1333 Mhz FSB for the mobo question

The only difference in the processors you have selected is the FSB speed. That's it.

EDIT: obviously frequency as well, but OCing takes care of that.

yeah...uhh vylence..theres a huge dif in processors and OCING will NOT take care of that... kinda stupid to OC most of the time because it gives hardware a shorter lifespan... Jesuss, go with the e6550.

He asked what the diffeence was between those two processors. The difference was frequency, which is a given, and the FSB speeds. If you want to adjust the frequency OC. How is that stupid? And no, it won't lower your lifespan. Not unless you're running a 100% OC 100% of the time.
