Why are you purchasing the same cpu that you already own?

If you can't overclock, then it will be faster. What motherboard are you purchasing?

Explain how the second one would be better if he can OC with his motherboard. I'd like to hear this one.... (I'm guessing that you're gonna imply binning)

Ok, you have 2 procesors. Lets say one is 2ghz and the other is 2,5ghz. Its easyer to overclock the second one with 2,5ghz to a speed like 2.7ghz than the first one to that same speed. The price difference is 10$, so why schould he not buy the second one?

Usually when you have more L2 cache, you will have a better OC (not allways true, but usually is) I would take the first 1 because it has double the L2 cache of the second one.. I think the 1st one would OC better too..
