  1. i am begginner on these products !!
  2. well i5 is better its 4 cores so its a very good cpu... but if u want more cores for the same price phenom 1090t its 6 cores kinda more future proof? but you will need another motherboard with a different chipset like for amd 870 880.. 970 990fx.. intel
    p67 p68, h67 z68 z75 z77.
  3. i am confused cuz dont know how these products will work better with i5 2400 or 1090t in benchmark i5 2400 is a bit faster than 1090t. maybe i should go for 1090t thanks for the answer :)
