Intel Pentium E5700 vs Intel Core 2 Duo E7500
I'm gonna replace my processor, an e5300. Which one is better?
E5700: 60 euro's
E7500: 100 euro's
E5700: 3 gHz
E7500: 2,93 gHz
E5700: 2mb L2
E7500: 3mb L2
It will be used for mostly gaming, on lower settings.
The difference between the e5300 and the e5700 is 400mhz, is it worth it? I may overclock the e5300, if the overclock doesn't cause a shortened lifetime on other parts than the processor.
