Performance-wise an overclocked E7200 running at the same frequency used by an 8xxx model is about 10% slower in games and 5% slower in other programs. So the smaller amount of cache does not affect performance that much.
Still, it's a great overclocker imo.

Well with the E8400 price dropping down to $163 I think the E8400 is my choice guys, they have better OC'ing potential and are now cheap enough for me to get

with the cache it works out at about 200mhz, so the 7200 will perform about the same as a 8xxx running 200mhz slower.

if you think you can get 500fsb from your board give the 82/300 a try

im happy with mine
still frags n00bs

Hold your horses. I posted a thread about 5 days regarding the above

I wait till early next month and get a E5200 (800FSB) with it 12.5 Multi it should overclock high than a E8400. and cost cheaper than a E7200.

Still I would get a E7200 and ATi 4870 or GTX260.

Well I think I am going with the E8400, as i said there has been a price drop, the multi is acceptable (Especially with me getting the highest FSB ever reached motherboard)

Here's a review revealing the performance advantages of 6MB cache vs 3MB. It is in a foreign language but the charts are clear.

IMHO, if I were to go dual-core, I would buy a $75 E2200 and overclock it to 3.2-3.4GHz. If I want to spend more, I'd get a Q6600 and overclock the crap out of it.

Give me about three days and I'll give you a run for your money. I pick up my E7200 tonight
