No doubt i5 is way faster as today' gaming need quad core for best gaming.go with i5.if you can afford then you can get i5 3470,i5 3570k (overclockable) but still i5 3330 is fine.

i5 def, if u can go for the unlocked 3570k if ur overclocking or the non k 3570 or 3470 its only $10 more, but def i5 over i3
