Ya I've dealt with those type of boards before "SUXs" only being able to move the FSB.
Have to move it till its unstable & back it down 10 or 20 MHZ FSB.

they are the same chip lol the E5700 is older though and a lower performer than the E7500

The E7500 is a better CPU. And not too bad one at that. But like the other guys said, for gaming you'd want to look at a cheaper quad core CPU, or a dual core AMD Phenom II 550BE (or similar) that will allow you to unlock the other two/one stable cores.

Looking for an intel quad, or dual for that matter thats going to insanely overpriced because most everything is EOL doesnt make sense to me.

AMD still makes their phenom II's and the chipsets/boards are still widely manufactured. better deal, better future proofing.

even when the phenom II's are EOL, bulldozer FITS AND FUNCTIONS.

prices in India are a total ripoff..the e7500 costs slightly more than an i3 2100

@OP : problem with Intel is the price range...the e7500 is around 5.6k and then there seems to be a direct jump to around 9.5k where the new i5's begin..can't seem to find anything in between as far as Intel(nobody seems to have the C2Q's or E8XXX's) cpu's are concerned whereas with AMD, you can work within your budget - say an athlon x3/x4 plus a cheap am3 board which supports your ram. You could also get an i3 2100 and H61 board for around 9k if you can stretch your budget a bit and if you get something for your old cpu but then ddr3 comes into the picture. Either way getting a video card which is necessary if gaming is important to you is out of question within that budget.

Unless your getting a good deal on a used dual or quad, dropping the majority of your budget on something like a e7500 is a not worth it imho.
