looking for something to run starcraft 2 and diablo 3 smoothly when released any suggestions for change in setup appreciated
Zmatt is probably going to laugh his *** off after this.
Go with the E5200 instead, its 2.5ghz and overclocks like a champ. It will beat the X2 6000+ any day of the week.
There no one can say I m biased now. But Intel still is an evil and inferior corporation. Anyways go with the E5200 because it will over clock much higher and with less heat distribution. Which translates to lower temperatures.
