Either of them will be adequate for your requirements.. The LGA 1156 platform though, with its support for both SLI and Crossfire, is a more feature rich platform to choose.. Couple that with the fact that the i5 760 is architecturely faster and superior to the X4 965, your choice becomes easier.. However, if budget is an issue and going for the i5 760 means you've to compromise on the graphic card, then i'd say its not worth it.. Stick to the X4 then.. Video card is anyday a more critical gaming factor over the CPU..
