I5-3570K vs i3-3225 - Would I see any difference? Tags: CPUs Computers Intel i5 Last response: September 17, 2012 5:10 PM in CPUs Share Denis54 September 17, 2012 4:32:52 PM I am not a gamer. I use my computer 3 - 4 hours a day to surf the web, read emails and do some light Word and Excel work. I realize that I do not need a very powerful computer but on the other hand I want it to be very FAST. Would I see a speed difference between an i5-3570K and a i3-3255? I do not want to spend foolishly but I have a flexible budget. NOTE: Both CPUs have HD 4000. I do not plan to get a discrete graphic card as I feel the HD 4000 will be plenty powerfull for my needs. NOTE: I will also get a crucial M4, Intel 520 or Samsung 830 SSD.
