E2140 or 3600+?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright I'm building a comp for a buddy of mine, which of these will be best?
Newegg.com - Open Box: MSI P6N SLI-FI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - OEM - $64.99 w/ E2140
OR
3600 brisbane + TForce 550?
edit:
I will be overclocking this to max, but I want to know if that MSI board is good for overclocking, it's the only board I can get for the price, otherwise I'll just get the 3600+, OR.. If there really is not a big difference between the two, I'll just get a 3600+

A E2140 is almost the same as a 3800+ but in overclocking E2140 beats 3800+ with ease. So Since it beats the 3800+ I am guessing it beats 3600+ by far. Check this one. http://xtreview.com/review204.htm

If money isn't a problem go for the E2140. Also I think Gigabyte has the best overclockers but to be safe wait for someone that knows better. I am not that knowledgeable with good OC mobos.
