Reccomend a CPU

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I'm considering buying a 650i asus motherboard, but i need a really cheap CPU.
So my question is what is the best/cheapest CPU i can get. I don't know how to overclock and it seems way to complicated for me, unless anyone thinks its not hard let me know . Thanks.

Its not hard, you can get great results by just moving the fsb Up.

i recommend E2180/60.. its cheap and when @ 3.0ghz its faster than a cat on catnip chasing a mouse.

650i supports dual cores. Dpending on your budget, E2xxx or E7200 should be a good upgrade.

E7200 is better imo. Its 45 nm, clocks high, it had bigger cashe than E2xxx ( i think it did ).
Less heat output.

I vote for an E2180 or an E7200.

I think an E5200 would be your best option, but it's not out yet.

really depends on your budget, if you can you should buy an E8400, although that might be out of your budget. If that's the case go for an E7200

Less heat output.
Allmost the same heat output.. e2160 just 3-5C cooler.. or just 1C.
totally depends of so many factors.

the 45nm chips are way cooler than the 65nm ones due to them needing less vcore.

if you can a 7200 would be a great match for the p5nesli, if not any e2xxx or e4xxx with a small oc would all smoke your 4400x2
