Im buying a Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.5ghz.

Well the main problem is:

There are two items listed
PENTIUM DUAL CORE E5200 S-775 2.5 GHZ 2M B800 MHZ

and

PENTIUM DUAL CORE E5200 S-775 2.5 GHZ 2M B800(IPI)

What would be the difference? i searched but found nothing concrete.

Thanks

EDIT: Also, any one know if my motherboard would support it?
MB MODEL: G31MXP-K from foxconn

Until today, I did not know there were 2 versions of the E5200. lol.

Further searching shows there are INDEED 2 different E5200s.

The "normal" one:
http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLB...
Notice it dosen't have Intel TXT.

Now the "other" one:
http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLA...
Notice the TXT is enabled.

I believe the "IPI" is referring to Intel TXT.

Imo, go for the lowest priced one.

Well, now that i think about it i guess thats what it means, since I live in Mexico but most computer stuff is in english, i thought the items weren't translated and asked about it here.

Just one more thing :)  What are the OC capabilities of this processor with the -stock- fan?

Thanks a lot btw.

I hear it OCs ok with stock, but if you invest an extra 20 into an aftermarket you'll get much more out of it.
