which has better price/performance ratio in gaming (when playing everything @ ultra high and in 1024x768) ?
i think E5200 has built from c2d E7200. both has wolfdale chip, 45nm processing technology and same clock speed. the difference is E5200's cache is 2mb L2 and E7200's is 3mb. E7200 has 1066fsb and E5200 has 800fsb.
c2d E7400 is faster than E7200, but is it worth buying E7400 @ 9500/- (i dont know the current price) when i find E5200 @ 5800/- (after budget) only for gaming @ 1024x768 and everything @ ultra high ?
