Hey guys I just need some quick advice, I just got the an MSI Whitebook (barebone) 937-16GA22-009 seen here: http://www.msiwhitebook.com/product_spec.asp?model=MS-1...

Since this is a barebone I am in need of a CPU and RAM (I already have a SSD) I am stuck between getting an i5-3320 and an i7-3610. I am tempted to go with the i5 for better battery life, but i want to ensure that the i5 wont bottleneck my gt660m. My main goal here is to play BF3 on medium and stable fps. Does anyone know if this would be possible with the i5? or would I have to step up to the i7?

Thanks in advance

i7 because it's a quad core.

If you are playing BF3, medium-high settings will be achieveable with the GTX660M and i7-3610QM.

I use the 7850M and 3610QM and can play BF3 at 1080P on medium-high settings.

If you are playing games like BF3 I would go with the quad core I7.
