I have 15,000 INR & i just need a processor , motherboard & RAM.. Nothing else is required , since i have a 1tb HDD , DVD writter , 21" LED monitor & 1gb nvidia GTX 260 graphics card...I have also orders CM HAF cabinet which come in 4-5days. I just want pro , mb & RAM for 15,000 INR & could throw in a couple of 2,000 INR extra upto a max. of 20,000 INR... I will be using this build for GFX(highly) & for gaming. (P.s : My pc would be turned on 24x7 due to rendering & stuff) So , can you guys guide wether to go for a i3 or i5..

Also, the i5 can provide better performance in games that uses more than 2 cores. AmithV February 7, 2012 5:33:30 PM Would i5 helps better than i3 ?? Because , i'll play games while its rendering in background..
