  1. Hey.

    So, I'm planning on buying on buying one of these. I know they're different sockets but I'm a little uncertain about my choice.

    On one hand the 5400K is newer, has a better clock speed and benchmarks say it's more powerful both in CPU and GPU
    On the other hand the 3500 is a tri-core and has more cache. The GPU (Radeon HD 6530D) I think it has some qualities over the 7540D, but overall I'm indecised because of the main figures: 3 cores vs. 2 cores and more cache (1MB/core vs. 0.5MB/core).

    So, what do you think?
