Okay so i have done my research and have narrowed it down to either the core i5 or i7 cpu for my next gaming build. I'm personally steering towards the i5 mainly because of cost...i figure with the extra cash saved I can get a better graphics card (or two!). I'd just like to know if there is a dramatic difference between the i7 and i5 that would justify the extra cost to go with the i7.
Get the i7 2500k or 2600k from microcenter. Don't know why but microcenter has the best price on those processors but its store pickup only. Id get the 2500k or 2600k without a doubt, wouldn't look at anything else.
