I'm looking at building a new setup on a budget, and I'm currently slightly stumped; whether to go for the overclocker E5200, or the price equivalent X2 7750 which has Virtualisation. Looking at Windows 7 which has XP mode, Virtualisation looks like it would be a good feature to have, but it's not a something that has been covered by many in comparisons, not Bit-Tech at least. So here I am, looking for some advice. What does everyone think? If I were to go for Intel, it'd be basicly identical to the What to Buy June guide: XFX 4770 512 Intel E5200 Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L As for AMD: XFX 4770 512 AMD X2 7750 BE Gigabyte MA770-US3 Overclocking and Virtualisation aside, AMD is still looking mighty enticing; the MA770 has more features than the EP43, and costs less; hailing from Australia, the MA770 costs $109AUD (~54GBP) while the EP43-UD3L costs $152AUD (~75GBP). That's ~21GBP difference. One final question: If I were to go AMD, should I stick with the 7750, or go 7850? From what I've seen, the 7850 doesn't have much more OC headroom than the 7750, and since I do intend to OC, stock speed is pretty much irrelevant.
