The 5200 will be the fastest it is clocked at 2.6 with 2mb cache the first cpu will use the less power and will be the coolest not sure what a 4850e would cost but that is clocked at 2.5 and uses the same amount of power as the 4450e so it to is a low power cpu

yeah, if possible find a 4850e, pretty powerful yet energy efficient

If you don't go for the 4850e try to at least find a 65nm processor instead of one of the 90nm.

what is the difference between the 65nm and the 90nm?

The 65nm will use less power and generate less heat.
