was wondering whats the difference between E 8400 and E3110?
both have same cache, FSB (no idea what it is), 3.0GHz etc etc
only difference is E8400 is a C2D, while E3110 is a Xeon

so which should i get?
E8400 = AUD$ 350
E3110 = AUD$ 300

cheers

This article:

should answer your question.

Basically the answer is: the difference between the E8400 and the E3110 is AUD$ 50. :D


EDIT: And to answer your other question, the FSB is the Front-Side Bus. This is essentially the 'speed limit' on the data highway in your computer. This is how fast info flows in and out of the processor. Faster FSB equals faster performance. If you've heard the term 'overclocking', it is usually done by increasing the FSB above the factory settings in order to squeeze more peformance out of a processor. Overclocking is usually done by hardware enthusiasts who are always looking to wring more speed out of their computers. It typically requires enhanced cooling to handle the increased heat generated by increasing the speed of the processor.
