Yeah, it has more L2 cache so a little better game performance and better potential for higher stable overclocks. The E5200 has less cache but the average stable OC is around 3.5ghz on them.

I'm the kinda person who just likes pushin stuff to the limit and seeing its capabilities, so seeing as the 8400 has more potential for overclocking, I guess I can wait a while and see if my power bill doesn't murder me this month and see if I have any extra money left. Anyway thanks again for all of the advice and help.

Oh guys I just saw this motherboard and was wondering how does it compare to the gigabyte you guys recommended earlier

It's a decent motherboard, I would still recommend the Gigabyte over it though. However, if you want to go SLI in the future, that would be a motherboard I might recommend.

The Gigabyte is the absolute best price/overclockability ratio mobo you can get.

Yeah, it's a good one if you are not going quad. If you plan to go quad in the future you will want the more expensive A1 revision as it overclocks quads better.
