according to these benchmarks there is a significant performance increase in games like Farcry 3 with i5 3470... ? the only reason I m thinking about an i5 is to gain that extra performance ... still not sure its worth that extra money .... ??????
its not worth the extra money.you won't get any performance increase in farcry 3.
what do u think about above benchmarks ?? is it processors like i3 3220 bottlenecking high-end gpus like 7970 ? is that how i5 and i7 got that extra performance increase ? may be mid range gpus like 660 wont get that extra performance with i5 and i7s ?
