  1. What resolution are you gaming at?

    The i5-2500 is probably the most recommended processor for gaming, so get it over the i3.
  2. If you don't upgrade your GPU then it will make no difference (for gaming) but if you plan on getting a better GPU during the life of the system then the 2500 is a much better option.
  3. The i3-2100 will be enough for gaming, but the i5-2500 or i5-2500k would be better for playing games in the long run since the i5 is a quad core CPU and it has Turbo Boost which is basically an automatic overclock of 400MHz at most, depending on temps.
  4. Well the highest resolution i play at is 1380x768..my led tv nd montior both supports that resolution max..nd yeah i will upgrade my gpu but now now(:..so i thnk im taking i5..thank you guys for ur time nd help :)
  5. you have a low resolution, better get a powerful cpu, go with the i5 2500, 5770 is enough for your resolution, you can run most games on high or max
