#1
Just bought a motherboard that supports: 1366 Socket, Now I was curious.. What's the best CPU to get for performance with the PCSX2 and isn't too expensive?

I guess the fastest clocked i5 or if you will overclock the one that overclocks best and is cheaper

If you want a cheaper one, then go for the i3, can be easily overclocked until 4Ghz on air, it's pretty good, mine is clocked until 4.2Ghz with stock cooler, yes, I have tested with Prime and never pass the 70° Laugh
PC:
EVGA 600 +80 PSU
NVIDIA GTX 550ti EVGA 2GB VRAM

Yeah don't think there are any i3s for socket 1336 (not 1366 btw Tongue) The lowest/cheapest processor it gets is an i5 AFAIK

Huh? It says it only supports LGA 1366, this is my first PC build so I may be wrong, but I don't think its a socket 1336?

The OP is correct, it's a socket LGA-1366. Afaik, there's no LGA-1336. Interestingly, I believe there's actually a Celeron released for that socket but I think it's OEM only (targeted towards servers), not to mention it's quite expensive (close to $200, I think). It does support all the business features (AMT, VT-d, VT-x, TXT, etc), however, if memory serves and has a TDP of 35W.

On the consumer front, lowest CPU for that is the i7-920. With recent price cuts, though, the most reasonable choice is the i7-950. If you've got money to burn, then there's the i7-980X.

Right... Because the price difference between the two is so huge percentage-wise... Tongue
