The difference between the intel e6750 and the X2 5000+ is pretty vast. I imagine that you'll see a significant difference in gaming performance when comparing the two. The E6750 is a far superior CPU.
If the question is: Is it $100 superior? I would have to say yes, it is.
Well, I forgot to mention this, but I'm familiar with the 5000+ black edition, so I CAN overclock it to 3.0 GHz, but just that cpu.
Can you guys give tell me a good CPU thats pretty good non-overclock? Cause I don't feel like overclocking things unless I already know how to.
Intel or AMD it doesn't matter. Just want to build a comp. that will handle Crysis when it comes out.
If you don't plan to overclock, buy the Intel setup and get rid of that aftermarket cooler. The stock coolers do pretty well, and that'll save you $45. If you absolutely insist on getting an aftermarket cooler, the Freezer 7 Pro is great, and only $19.99 right now. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Really though, you don't need it if you're not overclocking.
