Help me build a $700 Gaming Computer - Page 3

post #21 of 33
I don't think i'd pay almost double the price for a cpu for 2 megs of extra L2 cache (its been proven the L2 is the equivalent of 200 mhz) E4300 vs E6600 at same clocks

Unfortunately the newer E2180s do not overclock so well, I can only get mine to 2.5ghz on stock volts. With stock volts on the e7200 he should be able to get 2.8-3.0ghz - maybe.

Mine is quite a bad batch for heat too, I was getting 78*C load temps on a big typhoon. Now I've lapped both I get 70*C load temps at 1.44v - 3.2ghz. I can get to 3.5ghz stable with 1.50v but temps get out of hand.

Thread Starter 
I have decided to make it an intel build, because the prices for AMD aren't much less than a p35 motherboard and an e7200 or e2180/60

Out of the three motherboards listed, is it a good idea to get the DK and a cheaper processor? (e2160) or should I go with the cheaper motherboards and get an e7200?
I think I may try to get another chunk of money out of him to get the DK and the e72.

E7200 is a 9.5x cpu so a solid P35 board such as DS3L should be fine but that's your call thou.

I picked up an Open Box P35 Dark from the egg for $99.99 and it is a full complete retail unit in fine working order
Food for thought
