Default Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 vs E8600: The battle of the caches!

A returning question on many enthusiast discussion forums is which Intel CPU to choose for your S775 setup, the high end E8600 or the more budget friendly 7 series? We take a closer look at the advantages of the E8600 and its 6Mb L2 cache, versus the more affordable E7400 with only 3Mb L2 cache, which one offers the best bang for the buck? Read on to find out.

Well, as a gamer i'd prefer the 5 extra frames but the price of the E8600 is nearly double that of E7400.

I think I'll keep my E6750 (Oc 24/7 to 3.2GHz) until I switch to the i7.

The E7000 series are amazing for the price. I'd much rather go for one of those since all I do is game and some benching.

I would though rule out the E7200/E7300, because after 4.1GHz it takes a lot of Vcore to get anything higher than that.
Regards

Damian

Look at this phrase :

Some Game benchmarks

I swapped the 9800GTX for a GTX 285 to avoid having a GPU bottleneck


so only the game benchmarks are done with the 285, 3dmarks and co with the 9800GTX (285 was not available from the start of the test)

Kind regards from the Amateurish Clown
