It doesn't justifies the money you'll spend. Just get an aftermarket cooler an OC the heck out of your e6500. | Report abuse outlw6669 CPUs Expert February 8, 2010 8:22:41 AM ^ +1 The E6500 is a great overclocker. Cool it properly and you can get some massive FREE performance increases | Report abuse deadlockedworld CPUs Expert February 8, 2010 10:56:13 AM They are right--neither is a good option on a limited budget. Why are you thinking of changing the CPU? What are the rest of your specs? Perhaps a different upgrade would help some. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Core i3 or core 2 duo e7500> Related ressources: ForumWhich should I get?
