How much of a difference would there be going from a Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 (2.2ghz) to an FX-8150?

A pretty big one. 6 more cores, better multi tasking, better IPC and much better overclocking.

ITS LAKE COMPARING A CESSNA PIPER 2 SEATER PLANE TO A HARRIER JUMP JET!
EXPECT ATLEAST TRIPLE THE PERFORMANCE

Because it is what I am upgrading to so I wanted to know what the difference would be.

LOL, in all seriousness, if I were you I would get the FX-8120, its cheaper than the 8150 and they're the same CPU, the FX-8150 is just clocked higher. Since both CPUs are fully unlocked, theres no reason not to just buy an 8120 and clock it up.

That is true but if youre an avid overclocker, you might consider spending the extra $30 because the 8150's are higher binned than the 8120's so you might have the possibility of getting a few extra MHz out of your overclock.

Thats a pretty flimsy reason I admit but I have considered it. Newegg had the 8150 on sale for $189 last week and I almost bit for that very reason.

If you are not comfortable overclocking then yeah get the 8150 otherwise the 8120 is a good choice for those that are willing to overclock to get the speed difference between the two.

If you are going to compare AMD's flagship $220 CPU with low-end Intel under $100, at least make it a ~$95 Pentium-G850...

here's a comparo for your perusal, e2200 vs fx 8150:

although i think that an i5 2500k would be a worthier upgrade if you're into pc gaming, i don't know what you'll be doing with the cpu.
