e8400 or q8300 is better for pcsx2 ?
#1
hi !
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 has 6mg cache and 3000 MHz Frequency but it's Dual Core
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 has 4mg cache and 2500 MHz Frequency and it's Quad Core

i think quad core cpus is better for PCSX2
Which is better for pcsx2 and gaming ?!
i now have E5300 and it has 30-40 fps in pcsx2Sad
i want full fps
my motherbord dont support core i3/i5/i7
so i should buy Core 2 Quad cpus or Core 2 Duo cpus
Which is better for pcsx2 and gaming ?
E8400 or Q8300 ?

Both are quite old CPUs and it depends which games you plan to play (PC and/or PCSX2) but I would save some money and go for atleast an i5-2500(k) + a motherboard that supports it, You won't get much out of those CPUs.

if you aren't planning on overclocking, go for the q8300, if you are, apparently you can get a much better overclock from the q6600 as it has a higher multiplier (so a quick google says Tongue)

Duos (I have an E7400) can be overclocked 1+ ghz, producing beast results. I took mine from 2.66 to 3.8 ghz and it was pretty decent for pcsx2 but I put it back to stock speeds because I hadn't the money to buy a cooler lol.
