    EXQEX9 Yep.

    What is the difference between a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and a 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo?

    0.27 GHz..............?

    Doc Trust me, I'm The Doctor. V.I.P.

    ...you mean .27 GHz.

    It's just a bit faster, same chip. Go with the cheaper processor and get an ASUS motherboard and you should be able to overclock it to 3.0 GHz.

    Apparently I noticed my mistake at the same time as you.



    (I'd put 2.7 :sick:)

    EXQEX9 Yep.

    Let me clarify my question.

    How will the chip with the higher number effect my computer in relation to the lower number?

    The chip with the higher number is better, stabler, faster, and more expensiver.

    That's really about it.

    Honestly I really don't think you are going to notice the difference between the 2 because they are so close but buying Intel alone jacks the price up.

    Everything.

    That chip is quite literally the brain of your computer. The number in GHz is the brain's IQ.





    But 0.27 GHz, as mentioned, probably isn't enough to really notice anyways...


    Jumping from my single core Sempron 2800+ 1.60 GHz to a 2.53 GHz anything would be fantastic!
