i5 has better specs than i3 :PpPDD (all teh numbers are biggar)
i3 = dualcore, i5 = quadcore, le choix est vite fait.

Prend le i5 750 il est très bon.
I have the i3 540. but didnt want to gief much moneyz

BUT I should go for the i5 :P
computer
I see some shit around i5 old series.
There IS NEW i5 ONE WITH NEW CHIP WHAT BEATs i7 easily.
It's Sandy Bridge CPU-s
Intels CPUs are "best bang for buck".
Here is test with new i5 chips

And it only cost 147euros(Quad-Core)!!
i7 is bullshit,only no brains buy it,then later sell it for 205 euros if they bought it for 600 euros.
i5 ofc afaik some i5 macbooks are more expensive than some i7 macbooks. 8-core is still better though
better for what? gaming? doubt it. using workstation software like 3D render and video encoding? definitely.

i5 doesnt have 8 cores. 4 cores
Parent
mac's most expensive computer has 2 i7s 4 + 4 = 8. they call it 8-core
Parent
i5 2500K (not 2500 but 2500K)

check some tests and you'll see that this is the absolute best choice right now (beats most i7 cpus, except the extremes that cost 1000+ eur) and its only like 180-200 eur.
In estonia we get it for 130 euros-150 euros:)
And they are Sandy Bridge CPU-s I also ordered 2500K for gaming.
Parent
i got i5 2500k waiting, going to get new psu tomorrow :)
Defonately try to reach for i5 2500k, all reviews praise it
i got i7 ^^
prend un i5 a partir de 2400

i5 2400
i5 2400s
i5 2500
i5 2500k (best)
some i5's are quite cheap and practically as good as i7's
Sandy Bridge i5's are quite cheap and better than i7's :)*
Parent
i7 > i5 > i3
Intel® Core™ i7 Prozessor Extreme
what motherboard do you have?
budget?

i3 2100 and i5 2500K are sick but dunno if they fit

edit: check this graph
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/CPU/2

See how hard 2500K rolls
motherboard p67 or z68

with i5 sandybridge & have fun


its my last word !
