I need help with decision on the i5 quad 45nm or the dual 32nm for online gaming,you tube videos and internet surfing.
In my theory,the quad is better than dual as far as performance concern,but then again as the technology goe's by,
every year its advancing fast,so there for i would like to keep up with technology by upgrading the cpu each year or there
abouts.Thank you in advance.

Hello Antonythegamer;

Maybe these benchmark results will help you out. i3 540 3.06Ghz $125 vs i5 750 2.66Ghz $200
Performance wise I think the i5 750 is the clear leader. And if you're willing to do some overclocking I think you can avoid changing out the CPU on a yearly basis. I think it should be good for the next 3 years.
i5 750 is $75 more but if it saves you forking over another $125 each of the next two years you'll end up coming out ahead.

ok thank you for the help.i think i made my mind now and im going for i5 655k unlocked cpu,because it uses less power consumption especially on full load.i also have the advanced cooling thermal solution for it too which zalman flex with dual red led fans to go with it.thank you.
