help picking Intel CPU Tags: CPUs AMD Product Last response: October 7, 2007 2:01 AM in CPUs Share decoy26517 October 6, 2007 9:22:27 PM I've always been an AMD fan, and I'm considering upgrading to a core Duo for my next project. From what I can tell the E6750 is better then the E6700... however on newegg the E6750: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115029 is alot cheaper then the E6700: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115002 is there anything I'm missing here? Also when looking for a processor that's ~$200ish what is the best option out there? For AMD I was looking forward for the 6400+ but the E6750 looks better both in price and performance. NOTE: I'm really just going to be gaming on this system and those are the benchmarks I was checking when comparing these 2.
