Which is better performer?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am new to overclocking and new to this forum. I recently(3 days ago) built a system with used parts:

Asus Maximus II Formula (Socket 775)
ATI HD Radeon 4870 Sapphire Edition (512MB GDDR5, 750MHZ CORE CLOCK)
600W Thermaltake powersupply
Coolermaster Elite 360 mid-tower case
Thermalright heatsink w. 120mm fan
2 x2GB Mushkin + 2 x2GB G-skill = 8GB TOTAL(both are DDR2 @ 1066MHZ, 5-5-5-15, 2.0-2.1v)
1TB Hitachi 7200RPM Hdd (3.5')

Anyways lets get to the point.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have an Intel e5200 processor at MAXIMUM overclock (keeping the dram:fsb ratio 1:1): I get 330FSB x12.5 Multiplier = 4.14GHZ. Ram is running at 661DDR or 330MHZ with 3-4-4-11 Timings. vcore @ 1.45v (which is the maximum) and dram @ 2.1v (which is also the maximum) 100% stable.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit rating:
Processor 7.0
RAM 7.0
Gaming Graphics 7.5
Desktop Graphics 7.5
HDD 5.9

OR

with the Intel e6600 processor, at MAXIMUM overclock I achieve (keeping the dram:fsb ratio 1:1) 450FSB x8 Multiplier = 3.6GHZ. Ram is running at 900DDR or 450MHZ with 5-5-5-15 Timings. vcore @ 1.55v (which is the maximum) and dram @ 2.1v (which is also the maximum) 100% stable.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit rating:
Processor 6.9
RAM 7.1
Gaming Graphics 7.5
Desktop Graphics 7.5
HDD 5.9
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHICH IS BETTER AND WHY? WHICH PROCESSOR DO I KEEP AND WHICH TO SELL? I NEED ADVICE AND HELP TO CHOOSE?

Also:
I will be playing Wii emulator , which I need to achieve as fast speeds as possible.

Thanks.

EDIT:
I WILL BE UPGRADING TO A CORE 2 QUAD IN A FEW MONTHS WHEN I GET THE MONEY.
