LOL enaher December 7, 2008 1:31:53 AM E5200 if your overclocking, AMD 6000+ if not and because its cheaper... NMDante December 7, 2008 1:46:15 AM I agree with Turboflame. But the E5200 is a bit over the $80 (using Newegg pricing, by $3). The 6000+ is $76.00. So, yup...those 2 CPUs would be the best to compare with each other for your build. PsyKhiqZero a b à CPUs December 7, 2008 2:02:48 AM Personally I prefer amd for budget builds. amd boards IMO tend to offer a lot more for your money. I think you should compare the prices of cpu and mobo together. roadrunner197069 December 7, 2008 2:24:49 AM The e5200 goes up to 4.0 the 6000+ gets no wear near 4.0 cjl a b à CPUs December 7, 2008 2:32:05 AM If overclocking, the Intel E5200 is the way to go. If not, they're fairly close, and I'd probably give the edge to the AMD because of budget boards. roofus December 7, 2008 2:52:08 AM since you dont plan to overclock and you are budget limited, i would get the 6000+ and a decent motherboard. you will definitely have more selections in budget platforms on the AMD side of the fence when it comes to motherboards.
