I'm looking to buy a new desktop but I'm split on whether to buy the i5-2400 or i5-2500. I don't think I'll be OCing in the future but I want to get the best value for my money. Which one should I chose?

depends what you want to use it for

I'm a moderate gamer so I would use it for COD, various FPS games, and work

as you cas see the difference is fairly negligible and either would be overkill for games like cod but its always nice to futureproof yourself. but accoring to thos benchmarks the difference is around 3FPS between the two.
obviosly getting a decent cpu would be useless if you have a garbage gpu.
so the choice comes down to how much are you willing to pay for 3-5 fps.
