    Hi,

    Currently I'm faced with a choice between 2 different rigs. Which would be the better choice given that I plan to OC whichever I get? I want the best stable performance using stock cooler + air cooler (case).

    e5200 (2.5 GHz)
    ASUS P5KPL-AM/PS (max 8 GB ddr2)


    e5700 (3.0 GHz)
    ASUS P5G41C-M LX (max 8 GB ddr2/3)

    Which should I get? I heard that the e5200 is better with OC's, but that might be when you're talking about extremes. I'd be happy with a 3.6-4.0 GHz one.

    Thanks!
