The numbers may appear to be close, but look what the numbers are for. While a difference 32.3 may appear to be small, When your talking FPS that's a huge difference. If you are wondering, that was the Half-Life 2 test.

I think we have some Intel fanboys on our hands. This is the most accurate page comparing CPUs in my opinion. The E6300 is not listed yet, but the E6400 (a better CPU) is. The 5600+ still wins in most benchmarks.

Then why are you still arguing for Intel when it's obvious that the AMD is better?

Anyway, of those 2 processors, get the AMD.

That's true, but judging by his computer knowledge I would guess that he's not going to be overclocking too much.

Even if they were exactly equal, I would still get the C2D because if you ever wanted to upgrade, the processor would still run on the LGA775 socket so you would only have to buy a new processor instead of a new motherboard and processor.

by the time he will need a new cpu there will most likely be new sockets out already.
