Default Which one is faster? help

My friend is giving me a processor, I have two to choose from. I want to choose the faster one, I don't care about which one lasts longer or anything, I just want to know which one is faster, because I'm a gamer.

So the choices are:
- Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00 GHz
- AMD Athlon64 Socket 939 3800+ ( Not X2 !!)

Thank you

The Intel E2180 should be the faster of the two. The E2000 series chips are basically Core 2 Duos with only 1MB L2 Cache running on an 800MHz FSB.

can't believe nobody's mentioned this to you but, the e2180 is EASILY overclocked to 3.0Ghz and at that speed matches the e6850, which is about $185. so definitely get that one.

Why are you comparing these two, they're not in the same price league, and why SKT939? Look what you can get for the same price as the E2180: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103212
And that would be faster.
