Hello,
I am building a gaming PC and I am putting good money into the mobo. I am going with the i7 1336 slot. The trouble that I am having is which one do i choose. I do not want to spend $500.00 and would like to be under that number and get the best bang for the buck. Any suggestions?

I guess it does look similar in specs. Thanks

I agree with the i5. the 760 is a good model. Currently, any processor or $300 is definitely not good bang for buck. Actually, I personally don't think any processor over $200 is worth it's price for the performance.
Anyway, the i5 is a good model. The only thing it is lacking is triple channel memory, a full 16 pci-e planes and hyperthreading.. Nothing of a big deal.

I'm getting a good deal on it though. The price is not much more than the i5.
