upgraded my CPU to e5300 did I make a good choice
#1
as the title sez just bought myself a brand new e5300 which is a little bit faster than my e4400 and I have not tried to overclock it yet and PLZ none of that "you should have picked an e8400 or an e7500 instead" cuz I could I would have but the prices od these procies are just too muck in my country they are so expensive here that I could throw an extravagant party at a beachhouse rental and still have plenty of money left to buy a dozen kfc bucket meal with there equivalent in money ]
so did I make a good one or a bad one and I will overclock it perhaps later to 3.6 GHZ or something and will it be a little bit faster on PCSX2

Sounds pretty useless. You're just hoping that the new processor will OC better, but if it doesn't or it just OCes the same (it happens, it's usually luck of the draw with overclocking) then you just wasted your money.
I'm always against 'small' upgrades since the difference you experience is minimal but the cost is substantial.

Cache has little to no effect to PCSX2. Well everyone overclocks my processor the E8400 to 4Ghz + but mine won't go over 3,6 Ghz even with 1,38v. What I'm saying is that even if others OC some processor well, there is always a chance you get a dud which overclocks crappy.
My suggestion would be to just save your money until you can do a full upgrade to a new quad, i5 or something. That would be much more worth it imo

ok then tnx BUT that will take me forever of saving part of my salary to buy myself an I5 cuz it costs around 27,000-30,000 here and my monthly salary only goes as high as 13,780 a month oh well ill just return it tommorow then and get my money back and save up to atleast an e7500 or an e8400
TNX again

Well the prices will go down too...I guess you're doing the right thing getting your money back. The only advantage of a faster clocked dual core would be in PCSX2, which wouldn't be so great since at 3 Ghz most games should work fine for you

Processors of the same family tend to overclock on the same maximal range unless you got a dud.
An E7500 in your place costs P4800-5500 depending on who you are dealing with.

Yeah many people think after OC that going to windows and be able to run apps is enough, even those who try burning usually use weak burners or wrong options. I though I got 3.8ghz on my E7400 only to get powned with intel burn test(linpack) in 64bit mode. Then I though its finally stable when it passed and nothing else can crash it anymore after such torture app., only to get error in prime95 in SPECIFIC 10k FTT-in place test. So 3.6ghz for me with about 1.33v which is almost max safe(of course without loadline calibration which I dont like).
E7400 @ 3.6Ghz 1.33v, GTX-260 192SP 650/1400/1100/1.05v, 4Gb RAM, Windows Server 2008 x64
