I have an opportunity to buy either an e8400 or e3110 for the same price is there any difference at all, which should I go with?

e8400. These things can get REALLY good OCs.

I voted E8400 then i took a second and remembered that the 3110 was the xeon counterpart, lol.

It doesn't matter though, they are really the same processor in a different package.

I'd have to say E3110 based on the lower VID max(0.956-1.225V), the E8400 has a potentially lower VID(0.85-1.3625V), but also a potentially higher VID. Also the binning of the silicon on the 3110 is better.

Either one is fine. Beside the VID, E3110 supports I/OAT feature, which is for Intel Xeon chip.

Good thought, I also thought maybe the xeon version might be worth more on resale?

Is that going to change anything on overclocking? Which would you pick for the same money.

I really like the E8400, it overclocks very well.
