    I am buying a second computer on a budget and I want to try and get the most value for the money I have. I have pretty much narrowed my choice to two. Both computers have similar specs with the difference being the CPU. One computer has a Core 2 Duo running at 3.14 Ghz and the other computer has the Xeon CPU running at 2.10 Ghz. What are the pros and cons of each and which is the more preferable CPU to go with. Thanks all.

    For what type of usage?

    In most instances, higher clock speed is preferred over multiple cores. But it largely depends on usage.

    You weren't descriptive enough about the processors.

    Are you referring to the

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16 GHz

    and the

    Intel Xeon E5-2658 2.10 Ghz

    or are you referring to other processor models?
