i bet while ''in game'' u could not tell the difference between the 8400 & 2180
my machine is super quick !!!!!!! i get 0 lag in any game (exclude crysis)
everything maxed @ 1680x1050 ..i know the 8800 helps but the cpu is just superb even with 1mb cache the 2180 is a monster

i get 19sec super pi @ 3.2ghz & 12000 3dmark score ..thats pretty good

now im sorry but if ur looking for low end performace the E2180 CANNOT be beaten
regardless of what other chips are capable of or what size cache they have
just my thoughts......

I Read a post of E2180 (2.0Ghz) 3.4/3.6GHZ vs E6700 (2.66Ghz) at 3.4/3.6Ghz
In the 3Dmark Test E6700 has 9% more Score at the same Frecuency.
E2180 can go Up to 3.0Ghz with OC (3.7Ghz máx with Air)
E8400 can go up to 4.0Ghz with OC. (MotherBoard limit CPU OC)
Q6600 can go up to 3.0Ghz with OC. (3.6Ghz máx with Air)

Q6600 is the faster since will do ok with all game and in the future it will do even better, When OC is made you will see great performance.
Also Q6600 is 40% fast when the 4 core are working.


Also E2180 has some bottle neck when running at 2.0Ghz but that depende in the Game use in the test.

Probably the Diference in Price wont make me buy a E8400. OC is cheaper.
Q6600 with the OC is the best choice for the money.
If you allready have E2180 just work the OC. an later change for a Q6600 and use the same cooler to OC.

I heard some people who hast the i7920 with 8800GTS and has the same score than a E2180 at 3.0Ghz and a 8800GT OC. (reading forum)

It all really comes to how well you overclock each chip. You can't really compare the E2180 with the E8400 and Q6600 since they are in a much different price range. Of course the E8400 and Q6600 will be faster at the same clock speed of 3 Ghz and they are probably 5-10% faster depending on what applications you are using. But the E8400 and Q6600 can of course go higher than 3 Ghz easily so you can't really compare those.

Between the Q6600 and E8400, what you are generally using the computer for and how well you can overclock the chip determines which one is a better buy. If you can get the Q6600 to around 3.4 Ghz, then it'll be better than the E8400 at 4 Ghz in most applications.
