The 650 has been offered as a whole PC solution & I just wondered if 6MB Cache vs 4MB Smart Cache is faster.
Also not so sure about 1333MHz FSB vs 2.5 GT/s?

Dont bother about the FSB/DMI, they work differently.
The thing is the i5 is faster than the E8400 clock for clock as its is based on a different architecture, Turbo boost also helps.

But if you already have a E8400, skip the i5 650, either get a quad or wait for SB/BD. The performance increase wont be worth the money.
