Ok.Well i want to buy an intel processor.So i was thinking between an i3 and i5.i7 is too expensive and i wont really consider it.So now I just considering whether i should get an Intel I3-550 or I5-750.The I3 550 has a faster a speed but only 2 cores.While the I5-750 has 4 cores.

So i am not sure which should i get.

Get the 750 I would not suggest anyone to get a dual core. The I5 750 is a fantastic processor it is basically an I7 without the Hyper Threading. As for the clock speed of it can be easily fixed with a little overclock, those CPU's can do 3.8 4ghz without barely breaking a sweat.

cant really be bothered to overclock.But yeah I guess a quad core is way better.

Not gonna happen, the only way to do that is with no research on your parts. You simply need to find out the general max voltage for your cpu and don't go past it. Beyond that there is only a 1% or so, chance of it breaking.
