The I5-2400 is a good gaming CPU to, my GF been using it for a long time now.
Myself wouldnt go with less then a 2500K though so your right there lol
As you see though in the end the price's are almost the same but Intel give's alot more CPU performance.
My build was just 35$ more.
I understand trying AMD for a change is nice to, i have just recently done this and got an A8-3870K soon to be in CF with a 6770
Got a little AMD Fusion as home server to.
I love all hardware to, no matter if its AMD or Intel but sadly Intel seems to be the winner in almost every price range.
Like i said before its your money in the end and you deside what to do with it, and yes i to buy hardware i dont need or is subpar to another just to get it in me hands and play with it lol.
