E2180 to E6850, worth it?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I dont care about price, or how much it cost....money isnt a issue.

Now, is it worth it to upgrade from a E2180 (@3.0) to E6850 (@3.8+)?

Will I see a difference in multi-tasking or gaming? By how much %?

I would have to say yes, but why not grab a Q6600 or Q6700?? NVM, sig rig says you have a Q lol..

But yes, seriously in certain apps and games especially you can feel the difference. The higher L2 cache comes into play for the most part but having vitualization is nice also if you want to use say VMWare.

You'll see a slight difference (approx. 10-20% + FPS) in certain games and multitasking will be a bit better (approx. 15-25%). Although you may want to consider an E7200 as these are known to get good OC results

As u can see my board isnt really a good clocking board (.8 ghz max) if i get a E7200 I would probably only max OC it to 3.2, with a E6850 where the the default clock is 3.0 I can probably hit around 4.0.

@ Stock E6850 will destroy the E2180. When OC the E6850 will be at least 600MHz higher then E2180. Also L2 plays a big part in Core 2 Duos. 3GHz E2180 = 2.66 E6*** 4MB L2.

Yea, those figures are about right. I can feel a difference switching between my rigs and I have my E2180@ 3.6Ghz. The higher the oc you go the more you can feel and notice the difference. If you are gonna run no higher than 3.2GHz or so you won't notice much at all. But past that and imo YES you can certainly benefit from the E6850.

I went through the same when I grabbed my E6750 and I had no idea I was holding my rig back so much with that E2180.

E2*** series is a great budget cpu but no matter the oc on them they are not a performance cpu. But maybe I was a lucky one to feel such a difference between the two.

I've also been reading some good things about that E7200, worth a look at but since you're getting the E6850 for 100 it's a close call.

Kinda true but you have to remember the E6850 is already at 333MHz fsb not the 266MHz fsb. So E7200 you have .5 multi. higher than E6850 and it will be the 45nm Wolfdale core.

My apologies, I didn't notice the P965 chipset. Get the E6850 and then next purchase should be a DFI LP P35 DK and you'll see that CPU really crank it out!

Can't compare E6850 and E2180. E6850 is the winner in this case. If you can get E6850 for $100, it is a great deal.

The default FSB for E7200 is 1066, for E6850 it's 1333. The E7200 will OC better. If you clock the E7200 to 1333FSB (standard FSB for E6850) it runs at 3.16Ghz, and thus will be faster then the E6850.

Also the E7200 will run 3.7Ghz~ at stock vcore, where as the E6850 would struggle with higher volts and higher temps.
