Save Money, Overclock!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Wver wonder how many dollars you spend per MHz well I've decided to find out. I've done this for the three most recent Intel processor architectures for desktops. I got the model numbers from wikipedia and the retail cost from Newegg.com. I am going to leave the processors that I could not find prices for up and hopefully you guys (or gals) could find a retailer that has them. Also tell me any popular overclocks so I can do the same calculation but with the overclock.

Model number in blue, MHz per Dollar in red. MHz per dollar OverClocked in green.

Remeber when looking at this chart that each next iteration has better performance per clock than the last; meaning an i7 at 2.66GHz will perform better than a C2D at 3.0GHz. BUT, if you over clock this means nothing.

Any hints, thoughts, or suggestions are welcome. PM me or post.

yeah, but you have got to factor in Dual VS quad

good idea though

Should I put the same thing but with OC'd speeds next to popular processors?
EDIT: I'm going too.

I don't get what you are trying to say, I know that clock for clock they have different performance.
