The e7200 would be faster because it has a 0.5 higher multiplier.

Ah, okay, thanks. =) That's what I needed to know, I feel good buying the e7200 now.

I would think they would be somewhat close in performance in that scenario. The 8400 would be running about 2.4GHz with 6MB cache, and the 7200 would be 2.53GHz with 3MB cache, so if you are not going to get a new mainboard anytime soon, I'd get the 7200.

Ah, okay. I am building this computer to last me for three years, and I do not plan on replacing the motherboard unless it dies somehow. I just ordered the new processor, so I'm happy for now. =)

Though, will this processor be able to overclock even though my motherboard has a 1066 MHz limit for the FSB?

If you are building a computer to last you for 3 years (highly unlikely in the gaming world) I would suggest getting a quad core, like the Q6600 which can be had for like $190 (usually) or lower retail.

Well, "building" really isn't the right word. I'm upgrading my current computer to be able to last me decently for the next three years. I'm not really looking for it to be an amazing gaming computer, but a decent one that will allow me to enjoy moderately high quality games now and also be able to play games in the future at decent quality. I am on a small budget, though, and I really cannot afford to get a new motherboard, much less a more expensive CPU to go with it, so I am limited to Core 2 Duo's with a 1066 MHz FSB speed. After these three years, though, I will be starting from scratch for a truly kickass rig. I just need something to last me for this time period.

You better make sure your motherboard supports 45nm processors first (Yorkfield and/or Wolfdale). The E7200 might not work with an older chipset, even though it defaults at a 1066 FSB.

Ah, I didn't think of that, how might I be able to check? I looked in the motherboard manual but it doesn't specify.

Just built my PC on friday. I upgraded from a P4 2.8Ghz, OMFFFFG its amazing!! Mine hits 3.6Ghz at 1.15vcore or 3.68Ghz with 1100Mhz ram at 1.168vcore.
3dmark06

We are both basically in the same situation, you are upgrading from a P4 2.8Ghz, and both have a Zotac 8800GT Amp!, so you PC will get around the same PC mark as mine.
