    I am using the 2500+ Barton and its great for overclock...i see both as good overclockers as Wiggo get good numbers with his 2600+. For the price/ performance ratio i will go for the 2500+(2500+=175 US vs. 2700+=255US big difference). For me the 2500+ is cheaper gives you all that cache and is just as good in O/Cing.

    I have used the 2600+ but never overclocked it...the 2500+ i have used and i have overcloked but nothing out of this world yet...no time to tweak and play with it.

    I think he knows that Wig...he wants to know what he should go for...the TBred or the Barton.

    No I think he was askin' "Should I go for the faster one with less L2 cache or the slower one with more L2 cache?". I can't answer it as the only Barton cores available here are the 2800+ and 3000+ though I wouldn't mind comparin' a 2500+ against my 2600+. But a BIOS update maybe needed to run the Barton though.
