Default What would you choose?

Lets get some opinions. Either chip will go into a relatively similar setup if used. Possible encoding will be done, lots of gaming, BD watching, and internet browsing.

C2D E6600
Athlon II X2 245
Athlon X2 6000+

Any CPU used will be OCed to its max potential.

Need Descent and Mechwarrior buddies!

Default Re: What would you choose?

I would say it's between the Athlon II X2 245 and C2D E6600 as they are newer technology with a much smaller tech size of 45 nm and 60 nm vs 90nm on the Athlon X2 6000+. This should give more room for overclocking.
I would choose the C2D E6600 based on thie benchmark.
AMD Athlon II X2 245e vs Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6600

After doing a bit of reading, many say that the 245 and 6000+ max out around 3.6-3.7 Ghz.
The E6600 is the only one I could find hitting 4.0Ghz.
Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
