Intel Dual Core E2200 and ECS GF7050VT-M for $59


AMD Athlon X2 5600+ and ECS A740GM-M for $65

I know the E2200 sale is over, I bought it, I just saw the X2 5600+ and was thinking of returning the E2200 and getting the 5600+

^ I agree at stock the AMD will be the better option but if your planing to overclock (which I don't see why you wont) the Intel chip will thrash the AMD's offering.

Also note that you will need to get a AMD motherboard to run the X2 5600+. If OCing E2200 wins.

Intel boards are not really more expensive........
You can get an Overclockable Gigatbyte board from the $50s on up.
Pay more and get more/better features.
