They're the same core, so they'll have similar chance of reaching close to the same max overclock. The 2.4B is cheaper and has a smaller multiplier. Sort of a no brainer.

Go with the 2.4b. The 18 multiplier will let you hit a higher fsb then the 22 multiplier on the 2.66.

Batboy is correct again as usual. I apologize, I have been a little out of my mind. I had surgery on Monday, and I have been eating pain killers like they were M&M's. But I do stand behind what I said about which chip to go with. I would go with the 2.4 you will have a better chance of hitting a higher fsb with it.
