  1. Right now i5 for gaming is better, in the long run if games developers start to use more than 2 cores then FX
  2. Best answer
    Developers programming for more cores will happen, but you'll want a better CPU than either one of those when it does, so the "more cores" argument (at least for anything you buy right now) is basically moot.
  3. The long run is anyone's guess. Maybe the next version of Intel sucks and AMD gets it act together. Right now, though, the i5 has an advantage for gaming.
