Recomend me a CPU - Page 3

post #21 of 43
I recommended the E2180 because #1. I found that it's a great CPU for learning how to OC. #2: It's really fast. Sure, some may see the 1MB L2 and go "wow, that ship sucks. It's so slow. Come on. I just know you agree.", but I never had any issues with that chip being "slow". In fact, I had trouble keeping up with it. It was always looking at me going, "uuhhhh... so liike, when are you actually gonna give me something to do?"

Not only that, but he can find that chip for less than $80, and for SOME people's computer needs, it will perform similarly to a "superior" chip.

Although, I personally wouldn't dare say that it exceeds the performance of e6750's or anything like that because I simply don't know better. But from what I hear, those e6750's and 6850's are some pretty impressive chips, and I"ve heard that they do out-perform the e2180. But they cost way too much for a budget-minded build.

I do some mild gaming, but mainly stick to some 3d rendering and photoshop.

For overclocking, I will do some, just what my After market can handle.

We are helping. If someone makes a completely unfounded statement, we're obligated to correct them--what's wrong with that? The OP came for suggestions--you don't want them to have bad info, right?

There is a difference between that and just posting back and fourth with no interaction from the original poster, heck he hasn't even replied to anything you guys have written.

I don't want him to make a bad decision, but a good one can be made without this much debate.

This has officially gone out of my league.

I think we were just making sure that he isn't misled by false statements. When I first came to OC, I would believe anything anyone told me, and I'd take it as fact regardless if it were true or not because I simply didn't know any better.

Meh... I'm learning... I suppose. Do keep in mind that I work with multi-layer 20x20in+ PSD's.

I would look into something with more cache than the E2xxx if you are doing 3d rendering. I would look for a used E6750 or even an E8400. there have been some used ones around lately. The nice thing with the E8400's is that they do not produce a lot of heat, so you can get away with a lesser heatsink.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that since you're looking for an aftermarket cooling solution, then focus on getting an OEM CPU since they do not come with the unnecessary stock cooling in this situation, which will definitely cost less!!

In this case I recommend what I have, q6600 for $180 + xigmatek 1283 for $30.
