e7200 or e8400??? - Page 3

post #21 of 70
e8400, the extra cache makes it 10% faster clock for clock in games. so the 8400 is faster, and can hit ~4.3ghz on air!

I have got my E7200 to 3.47ghz. My Motherboard bottoms out at 1480 QDR. but the reason i can't OC my E7200 more is because of my Motherboard.

E7200 is a very cheap CPU which is going to get a discounted price when Intel release the E7300 rumours has it that E7200 will only be £70 which is even more Crazy

P.S most people on a good mother board are getting 3.8 easierly
Is a GA-P35-DS3L Considered good?

Hi, and welcome to the forum

It depends on your total budget. If spending the extra money on the E8400 means you only can get an 8600 series GPU instead of an 8800GT, then I'd definitly choose the E7200...

And the DS3L is indeed a good board.

Give us your total budget, and we can give a suggestion for the entire build.

In one or two games, and 5% or so in others. In real world applications, it is within 2%

Lets see, 2-10% slower, costs 30% less, hits almost the same OC.

Hmmmm. That's a tough one.

Also, Just because you buy an E8400, does NOT mean you will hit 4ghz. Many people have trouble reaching even 3.8 at safe voltages. So far I haven't seen an E7200 that will do less than 3.5@1.3v, and some push to 4ghz or higher.

Not to mention which, the E7200 has less cache, and therefore less heat output, possibly allowing higher OC's than the 8400 on a limited cooler.

I'm not saying that the E8400 isn't an awesome chip, I am just saying I feel the E7200 is a much better deal.

It is an awesome board, especially for the price.

Ya its a cool board but i want to SLI my GPU so i will be needing 2x PCI exp

I'll be upgrading my motherboard after i get a new PSU and another 8800GTS GPU. after all this i will consider a new motherboard.

Well, My total budget is now 900-1100(assume $900, but i may be able to pull the $1100)

I want SLI(maybe even 3-way)... I was thinking a evga 680i or 780i(a bit worried about the 780i video corruption though)

I just made a list, all item #'s are from newegg.com

I made this one with a quad core..., If I use the quad, I'm hoping to get ~3.6ghz.. as for the video card, I know it is a POS, but in a few months when I have another $800 or so, I will upgrade it then.. I am still stuck on whether I am using the right MOBO, DDR2, and CPU, as I will be OCing(as far as possible, yet stable)..BTW, also worth noting, I plan on running XP(got some old games i play), Vista64, and Linux64(this is why i want nvidia ;-), but most important, I do online school stuff, and IT MUST BE A STABLE machine(or at least stable when not highly OC'ed)

THE LIST!!!!!!!!!!!

If your hoping to go 3 way you'll need the GTX series I would stick with the 512 GTS and go 2 way and get a E7200 and bump that baby to 3.8 or 4.0ghz.

P.S i have push pass the 1500Qdr i'm now running at 3.56ghz stable on prime small fft test

I recommend against TRI-sli for the budget you plan. Get a nice SLI set up and call it a day, and enjoy!

Here are my picks:
https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...Title=My+picks

Better CPU (recent Q6600's don't overclock very well), better CPU cooler (that Rosewill thing will do nothing to that Quad the Intel stock cooler can't do), better hard drive, MUCH better video card, and some changes in RAM, mobo, and PSU that won't affect performance a whole lot.
