E7200 vs. E2180

Every one I ask, tells me E7200 is better. I am just an average user. I will do a little CS3, Adobe Preimere Pro, little encoding. Just a little of everything at a hobbyist level.
What I really want is a speedy system for regular tasks, like a fast boot, no hangs firefox(40 tabs), music, im? Sometimes these hang on me.

My current choice is Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core E2180. Simply because, I have read so many reviews about how it overclocks amazingly. I wont push it beyond 2.5-2.9GHZ.

Tell me, whether E7200 is really THAT much better?

  1. Yes the E7200 is a much faster CPU stock, and if overclocked is an excellent CPU. You might also look at the E5200 if the E7200 is a budget buster

  2. its much faster. core clock higher, more cache, more can be done in a cycle and oc very high.

    The e7200 is much better. It has 3mb cache vs 1mb. It will also overclock to 3.8ghz+ versus 3.2ghz+. It's a 45nm Wolfdale which is slightly faster clock for clock and runs cooler. I've used an e7200 and e2200 in builds and the e7200 is certainly better. And it's relatively cheap.
  6. Can you suggest a good mobo from this site www.techshop.in with Rs.4500 that are good for overclocking a E7200. Thank you very much!
