Question about Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge
Is there any big difference in Ivy Bridge to Sandy Bridge? Because I'm confused on what should I buy, the i5-2400 or the i5-3450, or maybe the i5-2500 or the i5-3550? I'm not going to overclock my CPU.. Please help me. Thanks in advance Smile

We're talking about a ~15% improvement in performance on average, with a slight power consumption reduction.

If you don't mind waiting until the end of the month, might as well get the faster CPU.
