Not overclocking at all then go with the 3450 if it is for gaming build.

hello there imrulbd, just go with an i5 3450.

it will do any job you put at it, video encoding, editing, 3d rendering, extreme gaming, etc.

go for i5 3450.

Godspeed.

Err...

I'd say go for an AMD Phenom II X4.

Much cheaper, and is only a lil' slower.

why? because Intel have been dominating the mainstream CPU segment for being top in vid editing, etc,

AMD is only famous because it offers customers budget CPU that can do gaming, vid editing, etc...it is powerful, but less powerful than Intel chips.

so, simply =
AMD : budget segment
Intel : uhh..mainstream performer segment
