Which of these Core i5 is the Best

Hello there...

I need your opinion about some Core i5 Processors.

Which one of these is the best for its performances:

1. Intel Core i5-655K Clarkdale 3.2GHz 4MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Unlocked Desktop Processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116369

2. Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115215

3. Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115067

I also would like to know which one of these is the Best considering the ratio of performance/price

My motherboard is an ASUS P7P55D EVO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131407&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3899435&SID=skim1402X558040

Opinions and suggestions (for something else) are more than welcomed...

  1. Id depends what you need it for. For gaming right now, the 32nm and higher clocked i5 6xx series would beat the i5 750/760. In synthetics and possibly when more games use all 4 cores, the i5 760 will do better. Heres a comparison of the 2:

    Depending on what you need it for, other CPU's come into play as well.

    It would be for a general use... Some games, some photoshop, not something extreme... I want something that will cover me (and keep me pleased) in a normal variety of programs and games
    Also a lot of HD Movies...
  3. some photoshopping would benefit from a quad core. do you only need a CPU, or a full build as well?

    At this time I only have the motherboard I said above... I'm about to buy 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory or something close to that. I'm looking for a CPU mostly Core i5 (I would consider i7 but the models with socket 1156 are expensive, in my opinion) that would be the most beneficial for me, plus the price to performance ratio...

    I'm not sure if the Intel Core i5-655K Clarkdale 3.2GHz 4MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Unlocked Desktop Processor is more powerful than the other two...

    Among the other two you suggest Intel Core i5-760 than Intel Core i5-750?

    But the main question remains as the comparison between the Intel Core i5-655K Clarkdale 3.2GHz and the Core i5-760 is more difficult than I thought it would be...

    Which one is the Best?
    1. Core i5-760
    2. Core i5-655K Clarkdale

    Overall, id go with the i5 760, or wait for sandy bridge.
