    Question Suggestion Needed [Core i5]

    I am about to upgrade my Rig from C2D to Core i5 , My budget is 10~12k for the Processor (I know I have to buy USED CPU). Now the thing is . . i am seeing offers for i5 2400 , i5 2300 but --> http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i...l-Core-i3-4360 says that even i3 4XXX is better than i5 23XX/24XX.

    So , whats the story?! And should i go for i5 3rd Gen (meaning , does that make much of a difference?) than i5 2nd Gen.

    Suggestions are highly appreciated.

    1. The theory is wrong. Always use Anandtech site for benchmarking. Bench yourself. i5 2nd gen is faster than i3 4th gen.
    2. If you can find 3rd gen i5 go for it. If you dont take the 2nd gen i5. Performance difference is little vs 2nd gen and 3rd gen.

    My suggestion : Get 4th gen i5 (Haswell) Its pretty Faster.

    If you have 12k add 3.5k and get a brand new i5 4th gen. If you take 2nd gen at 12k it wont be a wise decision.

    Well that site isn't wrong, the i3 4th is faster when comparing single core performance. But it is silly to not even consider multicore performance and rate the i3 over the i5 because it is cheaper.

    i5 2nd gen will always be faster. For the i3 to match an i5, each i3 core has to outperform the i5 core by 100%, and that isn't happening anytime soon
