Re: why would this be more?
well one is made by a different core.
the one you bought is wolfdale, and the other is conroe
and it seems the voltages are different, the one that cost more has a higher voltage, which means you can overclock it more since you have to up the voltage to make it run smoother and be more stable.
i could be wrong since i dont use intel.
