hello i need help and advice i got confused on which CPU should i buy?

the E7400 2.8ghz
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=36500

or the E7500 2.9ghz
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=36503

summarized comparison:

E7400 has Enhanced Halt State (C1E) while E7500 don't
E7400 has Embedded while E7500 don't
E7400 has 2.80 GHz but E7500 is faster on 2.93 GHz

also check this out comparisons

at [For use in]
the E7400 is for Embedded systems
the E7500 is for Desktops

$2 is difference price that's too low anyway...i know E7500 is bit faster but what are those 2 Essentials and that aren't included on E7500? is that important on gaming or application? i im gonna use P5KPL-AM motherboard and im dont prefer Overclocking..i much appreciate thanks!

Those extra features are pretty much useless...the small bit of speed is more useful, and you can overclock the E7500 more. Get the E7500 if the difference is $2

The E7500 has the Enhanced Halt State. It's just not listed.

They are both LGA775 CPU's.

I would buy an E7500. The higher multiplier and the lower VID range should make it a better overclocker.

... sometimes CPU is throttling its self without any reason even fresh bootup/restart thats kind a scary

It's not without reason. The CPU simply throttles back to a X6 multiplier when it's under a low load. I don't particularly care about the power saving aspects, but it helps cut down on the amount of heat generated inside the case. If it bothers you, go into the BIOS and turn it off. Generally, you can find it in the "Advanced Features" menu.

EDIT:

In my personal option, there no need to turn it off. If you have a program that going to load the cpu (like say a game) it will clock it self to stock speed instantaneously.
