The core 2 duo go up to 2.66 stock clock speed.
The core 2 duo extreme 2.93 stock clock speed.
These are from newegg. The extreme is just faster.
The only gain from the extreme edition would be speed in games.
This is what my research has found.
Should be a big difference from your P4.

PCSX2 does not get much benefit from the Extreme edition. I would suggest buying an E6600. With a decent motherboard and ram you can overclock an E6600 to match the X6800 on stock cooling.

2.66 Core 2 duo is about half price of Extreme.
C2D = 509.99 US$
Extreme = 959.99 US$
Again from newegg.

Extreme version has an unlocked multiplier - with the standard Core 2 Duos you can only lower the multiplier. Unlocked multi allows for easier overclocking.

think extreme version is same like standard version, with unlocked multi. that means its equal to E6600 but E6600 is just downgraded.
thats same with my A64 2800+ , in reality its a 3200+ CPU. and of course, you can overclock it with good mainboards to 3200 with stock cooling.
they just make 2 out of 1, downgraded for normal people and one super version for rich ppl.
manufacturing costs are the same. just go on some chinese online shop sites and verify :)
for really cheap CPUs you need connections to poor countrys, they are sold alot cheaper than here in germany or USA.

if you have enaugh money: go and buy the extreme edition :)
but a c2d 6700 is enaugh for the most compatible pcsx2 games ;)
