Right now I am looking at a budget build and having the most troubles finding the right CPU.
I do not plan on overclocking and my choice would goto the best performance per dollar processor. But the problem is that I cannot find much benchmarks for the Pentium e2180, e2200 and e2220. And better yet, one that compares those with their AMD counterparts.
So right now I need help comparing processors (My Thoughts in mind):
Right now on Newegg, I found a x2 4800 Brisbane for $59.99:
you can't go wrong with the X2 4800 at that price. The e2220 outperforms it, but costs significantly more money. The e2200 should perform largely the same as the X2 4800, and the e2180 is just a bit slower than the X2 4800. X2 4800 is $60 well spent.
