Default CPU question

so looking at microcenter prices for processors, surprisingly they are cheaper than newegg.
i was looking at these CPU's for $99.99 each, and was wondering which one is better for performance. I wont be overclocking by the way
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115032
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115052
i am showing newegg links because its better information wise.


Another thing...
i was thinking of getting this board to go with it
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130181
but the ram slots kind of look like they will interfere with an 8800GT a little. just wondering if the system will perform fine with the layout being like that.

just make sure you put the RAM in first then the GFx cuz then the clips will just barely go underneath the GFx.

i would think the 45nm will run smoother and cooler and its higher GHz

The E7200. It runs on a faster FSB, has a larger L2 cache, and operates at a higher frequency.

The memory slots will be fine. It'll make getting the first two modules in and out a little tricky with a card installed, but everything will fit fine.

Default Re: CPU question

i see, well in case i get some extra cash to buy a better one, and instead of asking about it here again, is Allendale better? or Wolfdale?
and when selecting a board, how do i know what speed of ram can the motherboard run.

Sorry for questions, but i never used the recent Intels before.

Default Re: CPU question

so when buying the CPU and board, i look at them the same as AMDs?

and from another post, worshipme posted this
Quote:
I'll explain, the E8400 uses the 1333MHz FSB (quad pumped 333MHz). 333MHz FSB with 1:1 ratio = DDR 667. Increasing the ratio will not bring higher bandwidth or performance because of the FSB bottleneck.

whats that about with the equation? does that only apply if i am overclocking?

no, it is applicable at all times, my cpu is overclocked, while my memory is underclocked, my FSB is 1333 and I have DDR2 6400 memory (800mhz) which I have underclocked to 667mhz because the 1:1 ratio with the FSB is more stable in my system (my cpu is overclocked to 3.0ghz, giving me the 1333 FSB with the 9x multiplier...

3.0ghz = 9 x 333
1333 quad pumped FSB/4 = 333
667 RAM double data rate (DDR)/2 = 333
1:1 ratio

E7200 has an FSB of 333MHz (quad pumped = 1333MHz)
333MHz FSB 1:1 ratio = DDR 667 MHz
Your RAM will be bottlenecked slightly unless you overclock to 400 MHz FSB (quad pumped = 1600MHz)
400MHz FSB 1:1 ratio = DDR 800 MHz.
