It hard to find any good reviews or I just can't find them .Does anybody know how the E7400 2.8g runs games and the new E6300 2.8g with V.T. I don't want AMD because I have all the parts for a Intel system but the CPU.

I found this compairsion to be very useful and it look to me that the extra 3mb of cache is not that big of a deal in games or other applications.

I'm not sure what you mean by "new E6300 2.8g with V.T."

But the E7400 should be a very solid CPU that overclocks extremely well.

Intel® Virtualization Technology ,the new E6300 2.8g has it and the E7400 does not have it.It just for windows 7 so that you could run windows XP Virtualy.I guess since she probally want be running windows 7 and even if she did ,she would'nt care about that anyway.

Wow, what the hell. They released ANOTHER E6300? :headexplode:

There is a Core 2 Duo E6300 that is 1.8Ghz with 2Mb cache. Now there is a Pentium Dual Core E6300 that is 2.8Ghz and has 2Mb cache. :headexplode:

That's just confusing...

Anyways, the E7400 probably has a small lead in performance, but both should be very nice CPUs... and they should overclock extremely well.
