None of the CPUs mentioned in the title.

Check out the Pentium(NOT Core 2 Duo) E6300. It is only slightly worse than the Core 2 Duo E7500 with the price being much cheaper than the E7500.

Pentium E6300 v.s. Core 2 DuoE7500, Click here for benchmark!

p.s. Pentium E6300 is much better than the Core 2 Duo E6300! Confused? Blame Intel then!

I wouldn't of called that slightly.
It shows X2 550 just kills the E7500 and E6550.

X2 550, pure and simple.
October 17, 2009 4:55:35 PM

yes, the X2 550 gets an advantage in the mother board area as well (P31 + E7500 costs the same as X2 550 plus MA770-UD3), so i was kind of aiming for it.

One more thing- will there be a bottle neck with hd 4870? (The smartas*es wil say there is allways a bottleneck, so i mean a serious one.)

And will a seasonic 500W supply enogh power?

No bottleneck at all, even smarta**es can't deny that. Except, of course, for games that use 4 cores. 500W will do fine.

X2 550
power coller 4870
Gigabyte MA770-ud3
Antec two hundred
500 GB HD (The cheapst one ill lol)
seasonic ss-500et

All great choices, probably will play most mainstream games at maximum settings, high end games on high settings as well. The only thing it won't play greatly is the god damn Crysis, but who cares about it anyway?

actully i allready finished crysis on a 8600GT lol.
let's just say i didn't quite understood what was all the hipe about it's grpahics at first lol, only then i saw videoes of the real deal.

Crysis is too unoptimized for today's standards. Look at Resident Evil 5, Devil May Cry 4, Prince of Persia, Assassin's Creed... The list is endless. All are greatly optimized and have beautiful graphics. Crysis is a superior game in engine and graphics, but for what a cost? 1fps?
