You, sir, are a night in shining armor. Like a true crusader, you attack injustice and people loosing money. If only there were more people like you around, the national economy would be 10x better.

Deepest regards,
Thelis

Yes, but for a dollar more, you are getting a worse processor. The speeds on the two are the same, but the 6420 has double the L2 cache making allowing it to perform better.
