Ideal HTPC processor: X2 3800+ or E6300?

Recommended Posts

For those who are seeking a cheap way to get into the dual processing world, which processor would you recommend?


The E6300 is the fastest, no doubt about it, but for those who currently have a A64 systems it means buying an expensive motherboard + new ram, while the X2 3800+ is just a cheap processor upgrade (150 euro's)...


Core2 e6300: 195 euro

Core2 mobo (i965 = buggy?): 80 euro

1GB DDR2: 120 euro

= 400

vs 3800+ upgrade = 150 euro
