Cant seem to find any benches with these two together.

The 7750 is $77, the E2200 is $70. No gaming, just basics and multiple (2) dvd burning instances at once being the most stressful thing the build will ever do.

probably the 7750 due to the higher clock speed.

Perhaps the 7750 for having a longer socket life span perhaps?

Actually scrap that, forget the E2200 and go the E5200 and overclock it to an easy 3ghz and blow both away

Yea.....I saw the E5200, but im trying to keep it under $140 for the CPU and mobo combined, and the lack of good Intel mobos around $40-$60 is severely lacking. Ive managed to build an entire system for under $400 using a Athlon 7750, an ASUS 7050PV mobo, 1TB HD, 2GB of ram and so fourth.

This system is for a buddy at work, told him I could keep it under $400 for what he wanted and im there. So ill probably just stick with the 7750, I pretty much assume its alot better than the E2200. Espically considering I wont be overclocking this.

But...im also considering the 5000+ X2 which is only $50.

The 7750 is definitely faster than the E2200 and is rather comparable to the E5200. On the other hand the 5000+ is enough for basic office and productivity tasks and is probably all you need especially if no gaming is involved.

Yea, im going to go with the 5000+ actually, it cut $30 off the final tag.

AMD 5000+ X2
ASUS AM2+ 7050PV mobo
1TB Samsung Spinpoint
Two (2) LG DVD burners
430W Thermaltake PSU
2GB A-data ddr2-800
basic rosewill matx case

Not bad for $334 before shipping. I think he will be satisfied that I hit $70 below his limit. Not to mention leagues better than his ~3 year old eMachines with a Pentium 4.

IMO the 7750 would have been a better choice than the 5000+, newer tech, faster. Just my POV.

look at 4Gb ddr2-800 kits, it might cost only a few $$ more...

Yes I originally had it with 4GB. It was $20 vs $32. I might and probably will throw it back on.
