Default whats the next step up from a core 2 duo e4500?

i bought a e4500 yesterday, and i got an extra 50 bucks today, and since i didnt open the cpu yet, im thinking i should exchange for something more powerful. the 6300 is basically the same, so im not sure what i can get for the 200 bucks that i have

NOO! Get the E6600, much better than the E6750, and much better for OC'ing.

It's only better in OC capability. You'd have to be pretty dumb to get an E6600 if you're not OCing.

Just spend the $50 toward a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme HSF. And if anyone comes on here telling me that it's not the best because it needs an extra fan, I'm going to smack you.

The Ultra 120 Extreme is the best heatsink if you are looking for topnotch performance. It performs really well with low CFM fans too.

That E4500 seems to work quite well. We talked over it and his CPU idles at 33C. And that's 3C cooler than mine.
