Here is my question:
After I submitted my order, I began to wrestle with my decision to go with the i5-2400 over the i5-2500. We are on a fairly tight budget which is why even the mere $20 difference between these two processors had me wrestling and ultimately opting for the cheaper model. I am not interested in overclocking, so no need for the 2500k discussion. I am an avid MMO game player, and I am looking for a system that will run Star Wars: The Old Republic well and without issues. Will the i5-2400 suit my gaming needs with this system, or should I go through the trouble to return the i5-2400 and grab the i5-2500?
+1 You got to love o1die. Since the only difference between the Intel® Core™ i5-2400 and the Intel Core i5-2500 is 200MHz in speed and since you are gaming it may cost you a few FPS but shouldnt really be an issue.
