i3 or i5

  iqs 14:33 17 Dec 2011

Hi, Im think about changing my MB and CPU. Currently I have a Intel Core Duo E6600 2.4 Ghz I was looking possibly for an i3 or even i5.

But how does the i3 and i5 compare to my current CPU ?

Will the lowest spec i3 out perform the 6600 ?

Which one should I buy

Hi And thanks for the help. I was a PC games,but now its all XBOX I was just after a CPU which was a step up from the old one. I would like an i5,but I think it may well be an i3,cheaper .

Thanks for the help,time to look and shop.
