Intel Processor Comparison

Would you rather have:

Intel Core i5-650 3.2GHz 4mb L3 cache for $185:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115220

or

Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66GHz 4mb L2 cache for $170:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115057

I'm trying to figure out how things measure up. Is there a benchmark anywhere between recent intel processors?

I'll let you know how the i5 650 does next week (ten days, something like that) MeI... ordering my HD5870 and a couple WD SiliconEdge 64GB SSDs tomorrow. Got my MSI GD-85 mobo prepped with some GeIL DDR3-2133 and a Tuniq 120 Extreme HSF to cool it down. Damn, now I really can't wait to see what this thing can do! o.O

Simplest way to roughly size em up is to goto somewhere like hwbot and stick each one in the search.

Lol yea I know. I'm simply asking if you had the choice to get one, which would out perform the other. I'm not purchasing them right now but the quad core is $170 and I would think that would outperform a dual core processor, but maybe the new architecture is so much further ahead that it's dual core out does a core 2 quad.

I'll check hwbot rasta, thanks.

I went with the newer architecture and higher starting speed. Quad core sounds good but I don't think it's a necessity just yet. I'm also betting that the overclocking on the i5 will also trump the C2Q, I say pay the extra couple bones and take it through the roof! ;} ja rly!

*As for the WD SSDs I read up on them and decided that they were still not 'mature' enough to warrant buying and went with the OCZ Vertex Turbo 64GB SSDs. For now I'll use one for the OS and some programs/apps/data, the other will be for video games (BFBC2), and then grab some HDDs next month for mass storage.
