Whats the difference between these 2 processors?

and
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819115029

looking at the specifications, the second one is cheaper, has a higher clock speed and a higher front side bus. The only other difference is the voltages, but i dont imagine that making the first one worth $40 more.

Am i missing something? The more expensive chip must have some feature to warrant the higher price.

Maybe the cheaper one is on sale.
Another explanation: Newegg may get their stock from many different outside retailers, vendors, warehouses, etc. Perhaps the two processors came to Newegg from different warehouses with differing prices.

[edit] Maybe Newegg has a buttload of processors that they have trouble selling. Marking down the price is a quick way to clear excess inventory.

i noticed this question was raised in another thread, and everyone agreed the cheaper processor was better. I guess i cant delete this thread anymore so if a mod wants to delete it, its fine with me.

I think a link to the other thread should suffice: http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=15190&p=393995#p393995
The thread wasn't even about this in particular. It was just a side-conversation.
