    E2200 vs X2 5000+ BE

    A friend has asked me to put together a budget system for him.
    I looked around and put 2 systems together:

    1. X2 5000+ + Gigabyte GA M57SLI-S4 SKT

    2. E2200 + Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 iP35

    The rest of the components in each system are going to be the same.

    My question is, which would you choose and why.


    Thanks in advance.

    p.s. I could also switch the E2200 for an E2180 if that is better (In respect to overclocking).

    I would go for the X2 as I have one of the 5000+ black editions and it's a fantastic chip.

    All the chips mentioned are capable of running 3.0GHz, the amd with great ease. At 3.0GHz with a scythe ninja on it, it is around ambient temps at idle and never gets very hot what ever you do to it.

    I wen't for it as it's nice and cheap for what you get, a very easy overclocker due to the unlocked multiplier, possible second hand value although I don't plan on selling it and a bit of lingering AMD loyalty having built 3 intel systems in the last year lol.

    It doesn't diassapoint though, the brisbane core is a bit of a peach to be honest, shame it came so late in the x2 lifecycle.

    I hardly think there is more performance (noticable anyway).

    My E6600 @ 3.0GHz encoded a DVD about 2 minutes quicker than the 5000+ @ 2.8GHz. It's a good chip.

    If you went with option 2 you would have more headroom for a cpu updrage in the future with higher overclocking options?
