Default Intel vs Intel

E6320 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115015

VS.

E4500 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115031

Is it worth the extra 50$?

Default Re: Intel vs Intel

What are you using the computer for?

There isn't a huge difference between the processors performance wise. If you have the cash, definitely get the E6320 though. It's a Conroe (E6xxx series), much better than the Allendale (E4xxx series).

I use my computer for everything. From gaming to chatting. So the more power the better.

If you haven't seen my recent posts, I am upgrading my PC and trying to get the most out of my money. So I might go with a lower end GFX card and get a better CPU, since I don't really play newer games anyway.

EDIT: Thank you to who ever moved this thread in the right place. I forgot there was a CPU forum.

Well...I'd say get the E6320 then.
Unless you're overclocking, in which case the E4500 is the better choice.

No, get the E6550. It's better and cheaper.
