Hello! :D 

Maybe this has been posted many times already, but i cant seem to find the right answer... :??: 

Im buying a new PC, i'm on a budget so im deciding between the i3-2100 and i5-2300. The 2300 seems much better, but it would take some money which i otherwise could use to aim higher with the gpu, lcd, etc.

Would there be a perceptible (not only hypotetical) difference between those Cpu's for a regular user / gamer? I play the last titles but im not very demanding (planning to get an hd 5770 or 6850)... What do you say?

thanks for the reply! the 2300 looks very tempting, but so does an hd 6850 and i guess i need to focus on the gpu.!
