  1. it will be pretty close but the i5 will still be faster.

    The difference won't really be noticeable in most games.
  2. Nooope, sandy bridge still will dominate a phenom ii any day. Even an i3-2100 can beat a 975 in most things.
  3. here i5 is better even atstock speed.

  4. Yes the I5 is better, intel is faster bla bla bla BUT it all depends on what your wanting.

    If you game, and nothing more, go with AMD, cheep and im using a 970, not touched the clock and playing BF3 all in ultra perfectly.

    If your using more heavier applications (which i doupt if your asking about them ;) ) Then go with intel.
    But AMD will work fine for gaming and every day use :D
  5. i think this is your answer
