Ok I'm looking at reviving an old system and have finally gotten down to fine tuning it. What I am asking is the 5800+ better or even on par with the 6000+. I have a HP Pavilion A1540N and I found out that the 5800+ was made specifically for HP computers, but at the same time while they are rated at the same speeds, would the 6000+ with an L2 cache of 1MB be more helpful than the 512 of the 5800+. Unless the 5800+ has much better performance than the 6000+ I'm thinking of sticking to the 6000+ due to price. So to put it simply, Which one gives me more bang for my buck.

Both will provide similar performance (as you said, they run at the same speed) but the extra L2 cache for the 6000 gives a little boost in some apps.

Go with whichever is cheaper, you won't notice the performance difference.

I couldn't tell you which is the better bang for the buck as the circumstances of your purchase are not entirely clear from your post.

I do not think the 5800 was made specifically for HP. It was available as a retail unit, if I remember correctly.

There is little speed difference between the 5800 and 6000. The 6000 is faster, but only slightly.
