For gaming and HD movie viewing and then the normal stuff text processing and using firefox etc.

What is better a i5 750 or a i5 650/660 ?

With a P7P55D-E and 4GB ddr3 and a 5850.

i5 750, is a real quad core, the 6xx series are just dual cores with hyperthreading enabled... and plus you have no need for the integrated GPU on the 6xx series ones.. just go with the i5 750, great processor

The i5 750 is better than the i5 600 series. The 600 series is Dual core with Hyper-Threading Support eventhou it does have high GHZ speed but it doesn't matter an 750 is Quad Core with L3 and turbo Boost and VT and 8MB would beat the 600 series
I have the Intel i5 750.

You can view my parts in my Youtube video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUa1UASQHk0
Well I hope it comes well for you.
enjoy

600 series has L3, turbo boost and VT as well. For just gaming? I3 all the way. It'll clock easily past 4.2Ghz and kickass in games.


True but Dual Core vs Quad Core

My i5 750 I've overclocked it to 3.7Ghz with Cooling Air (Stable) now if I had watercooling, I can reach GHZ speeds of 4.4GHZ
It has been done

OR... save some cash, go with the i3 530, and with money saved of drop in CPU, you could easily go from a 5770 to the 5830 to be released in a few days... that would be much better for gaming

And to add to psycho... saw benchmarks the other day where the i3 was performing on par with the phenom II x3 720 and some cases the x4 945... hyperthreading does work for it all right... however the benchmarks on anandtechs site doesnt reflect the reivew i read the other day

No one clocks the Lynnfiend's past 4.2Ghz unless on some pretty heavy duty watercooling. The I3 can hit 4.8GHz on air. Been there.. Done that. For a month i ran my clarkdale at 4.8Ghz with no issues.

So it all comes down to the games. If they're older then the I3 is perfect for them. How many games even utilize a quad core these days? 2? 3?

Higher clock speed DC > Lower clock speed QC

Then it's time to see switch is better.
But isn't the i5 600 is a med-range CPU

wait here is a video link for you

Yeah the i3 is a surprising value if you overclock it.

I could see an overclocked i3 taking on any processor to date on dual core optimized games (which is most).

Almost 4ghz with stock voltage... 4.8ghz on air, I mean come on!! This chip makes the E8500 look like a slouch. :)  $124?
Sht I'm tempted to can my Q9550 (I never would, but you know. Hehe). :)

4ghz on stock cooler. Gah, that's ridiculous.

I remember my E8400 could barely keep 4.0ghz on aftermarket air lol.

Friend of mine went to the MC today...

I3 530 : 99.99
H55 Board : 79.99
Hyper 212+ : 29.99

Had it at 4.6Ghz 10 minutes after installing windows. Great chip for the money

In the long time which one is going too perform better?
I'm trying to build a system that will last 2/3 years atleast.

Guaranteed longevity, your better off going with a 1366 build or am3 build tbh, the future of 1156 is pretty uncertain right now.
For the next 2/3 years, any current 1156 processor will do you fine, minus the pentium thing of course :)

It depends on what games you play today. 750 will be the no brainer choice if you love GTA IV.

650/660 might be able to knock down 750 when OCed now, but I believe that more and more fashion games released a year later will be able to take the advantage of four cores. Hence, you will want to get a quad if you are going to keep the PC for at least 3+ years which is most likely to be the case for most of us.

p.s. 650/660 would be the right one if you are a rich dude like PsychosayDie who upgrade every quarter or even shorter. :D

1156 is pretty much dead till Sandy Bridge comes out next year
1366 Has i believe 16 gulftown processors coming out this year



Wow, how can you say that about the 1156 when the i5 600series is on that socket platform??
You're not making no sense right now. 1156 is Dead until the sandy??? Didn't you say that about the 775 sockets as well??
I believe you did in a topic like this in the past. Oh because you have an i7 that makes it better??
I'd believe the 1156 and 1366 are equal in ratings.
Please don't make such non-sense when you don't work for Intel or AMD.
That is what you think and many would disagree with what you said. The 1156 is just began it's light in the spot light.

Now that is just cocky, I don't think you do every month Bro..
All lies. If that is the case then donated some parts to people that don't have a computer at home or to a salvation army.
Have a heart but you clearly seem like a cocky person that knows everything.

That is right, I donated my Intel Dual Core Gaming system to a family in need and build my sixth gaming rig that I have now.

When i say dead i mean no processors will be released for the rest of the year on it. It's not dead like Socket 775. 775 is just plain F*cked :) 

If you think 1156 and 1366 platform's are equal you need to look up some benchmarks.. Especially with Xfire and SLI setups

The difference between 16x and 8x is minimal and unnoticeable.



And so the difference between double/triple 8x and 16x CF is insignificant as well.

Me a noob?? I don't think you understand yourself very well. I'd might be talking to someone that is not in my age group
So I am going to keep it as clam as I did before and I will continue to says that your attitude is very unprofessional and
for you to make such a statement like that, you need to undergo a evaluation.

thanks to all for the answers and based on andy5174's i think i will go for the 750.

as for the system when i mean 2/3 years atleast i mean i don't want to touch it for 2/3 and when i do i will probably try to just change the GFX and leave all the rest if the system is capable of it, hence trying to choose the best cpu in the long run.

Very good choice, the future is near and Andy is right, soon the 4 core of all Quad core would be the future for upcoming games in the next year or so. Thinks about how far that PC gaming has come since the 1990"s I remember when my first build in 1998 and I was very happy in what I have completed but look at it now Now look at it now, better technology and hardware to support it.

You're kind of shooting yourself in the foot with this post. Your denial of cockiness sounds pretty cocky to me...
