Get the i5 for sure mate, i went from a dual core sandy g540 to a i52500|
and far cry 3 my frames went from around 30 to 60, fifa played smoother etc just the fact its 4 real cores vs 2 also gives way more future proofing.
Also i recommend this xfx psu(seasonic rebrand) over the cx430 as it has 2 pci power connector's and more amps on the 12v rail (gpu)
i have a cx430v2 and i have to use an adapter as my gpu requires 2 pci cables (gtx560ti), so i regret not getting that xfx.
