    2mb cache is better for more resourceful programs like say the game "crysis" between the 2 go with the E5200 also the E5200 has the 45nm manufacturing tech so it will run cooler. Seeing both of these on newegg $1 difference is just odd.
  2. The E5200 is newer and based off the 45nm process. First and foremost, the E5200 is 500mhz faster than the E2180, so at stock it is quite a bit faster. The E5200 also has new technologies built into and I'm pretty sure it has a higher IPC. It has double the cache so that should make it faster as well especially in games. In terms of overclocking, the E5200 should be a better overclocker by a pretty large margin.
  3. I find it funny how the E2180 is a dollar more on newegg.com doesn't make any sense. Then again newegg is odd sometimes. :o
  4. It's probably because the E2180 takes more money to manufacture and therefore all those that newegg has in stock has to be sold at a certain to make any profit or maybe even just break even.
  5. the 5200 is the clear winner all around.
