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+

Ideas?

  1. ^ 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.
  2. Also note that you will need to get a AMD motherboard to run the X2 5600+. If OCing E2200 wins.
  3. Thats what i was thinking... stock the AMD... overclocking e2200 FTW
  4. intel boards are also more expensive!
  5. 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.
