Just because the E5200 is 170mhz faster doesn't mean that it will be "faster" than the E6550.
The E6550 has 2MB more L2 Cache. It has a 533mhz faster FSB. It is going to be the better all around performing processor. It will also allow you to run your 1333mhz RAM at it's intended speed without having to "OC" the FSB to meet the RAM's stock speed.

E6550 is definitely your best bet. I used to have it few years back, it had no problems running the games that were around at that time (Oblivion, BF2).

A larger L2 cache beats higher core speed any day. When a CPU doesn't have much cache, a lot of the time it's just sitting there waiting for the RAM to bring it information. With a higher core speed, a higher percentage of the time will be spent waiting. Couple that with the higher FSB speed of the E6550 (which means faster transfer from the RAM), and we can assume that the E6550 will be quite a bit faster.

Do note, however, that the E6550 is a socket LGA 775 CPU. Most LGA 775 motherboards do not support DDR3 RAM. Also, there is little performance gain from using DDR3, since the CPU FSB will bottleneck anyway.

thanks about this info, and so u know im goin to use msi g41m-26 board, i got confused by the cpu benchmark score, how the hell e5200 give better preformance in cpu pass mark, and thats why i ask about help on forum... thanks again

Unfortunately, Passmark is notoriously unreliable, and gives a rating describing overall performance, not gaming in specific.
