ok so im almost done buying the parts to my gaming build but i cant decide on the processor. i already decided on the intel i5. but now which i5 to get? i wont be overclocking and it will be paired up with a radeon HD 6870


Core i5-3350P = $176
Core i5-3470 = $189
Core i5-3330 = $185
Core i5-3450 = $195

Do you plan on overclocking? If so non of them will be able to really overclock.

Then I would say either the second or last one but really it doesn't matter if you don't plan on overclocking. A few 100 MHz difference isn't going to really make a noticable difference in real world performance.
