You sir are simply wasting $$$ when buying Mac | Report abuse xaira CPUs Authority July 29, 2010 1:14:57 PM quad core is always better, | Report abuse runswindows95 July 29, 2010 1:35:39 PM If you are gaming at all, get a Windows PC. After that, which i5? The i5-680? If so, I would suggest the i5-750. It's a quad core for $200 that will overclock easily. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>What's better?> Related ressources: ForumWhat 's better , TV or Monitor?
