If you don't want to overclock, no point in getting a black edition AMD which are the overclocking series (thus more expensive)
With PCSX2, it will probably be the E7500 being faster (or on par) with that Phenom
Yeah and it should give better performance too.(when OCed)
Intel E5700 @3.0Ghz,
Xfx Radeon 5670 1Gb,
4Gb DDR3 Ram,
Microsoft Windows7 Ultimate x86
go for E7500... i can guarantee you.. it can give you more performance.. and you can also oc it.. you can pm me for O.C.

alternately get the i3 processor....good price,high-factory clock speed you don't need to worry about OCing
Main Hub:i5-4670(3.4Ghz Factory Clocked),ATi Radeon HD7770(GDDR5+128-bit+1GB),Win 10 SL(x64),ASUS H8M-E,8GB DDR3 RAM

Well... he was looking for a E8400 so i3-550 or i3-540 seems to be on the budget and would be faster too
Core i5 3570k -- Geforce GTX 670 -- Windows 7 x64
I'm gonna assume he has to buy a LGA 775 mobo too (why would anyone own a Core 2 Duo and get another Core 2 Duo?). So, i3 + LGA 1156 mobo is an option. It only adds about $50-$80 at best to the cost. If not lower if he purchases i3 from Microcenter and get a cheap mobo from ASUS/Gigabyte.
CPU: i7 930 @ 2.8GHz(Everyday)/3.6GHz(Gaming)/4.0GHz(Encoding)
GPU: Geforce GTX 480 @ 850MHz/1001MHz
Motherboard: ASUS P6X58D-E
RAM: 2x3 6GB OCZ @ 1527MHz 8-8-8-24
oh I never notice i3 silly me lol.
Thanks I think I"ll go i3 one question tho does this support ddr2 memory or a lga 1156 mobo w/ ddr2 slot. I wouldn't mind buying new dd3 just want to recycle my 4gb ram heh.
