The 2500 has a slower clock speed but it has more
cache so it should perform a little better than the

2500xp is equal to 2.5P4

2600xp is equal to 2.6P4 and is faster

Go for the cheapest, no difference really.

Go for the 2500 the larger onboard cache makes it work a little faster.

If the 2500+ is the Barton core and the 2600+ a Thoroughbred.then this is the best option,if the 2600+ is also a Barton your bank balance would be the deciding factor.

Most were buying the 2500+ Barton also for its overclocking ability but I believe the latest ones are now multiplier locked.

There is definately a 2600+ Barton now out.

You are right Rayuk i forgot there was a 2600 with a barton core,this would give it a slight edge.
