    Hello i need some advice about which processor to choose.

    ssmb

      Planning to build up a new computer , i got: motherboard ASUS P7P55D-E DELUXE , ram KINGSTON KHX1600C8D3T1K2/4GX DDR3 4GB (2X2GB) PC12800 1600MHZ HYPERX DUAL CHANNEL KIT , Hdd WESTERN DIGITAL WD1002FAEX 1TB CAVIAR BLACK SATA3 , Gpu Point of view 460 1gb,

      Power supply 850W.

       


      And my question is which processor should i add? i-5 661 thats has 2 cores and hyper threading technology or i5 760 that has 4 cores but no hyper threading technology ? i cannot afford an i7 due to budget.

       

      Im building this pc Mostly for gaming, and especially to got a fair play on Final Fantasy XIV, but also doign many other things like compresing, decoding etc.

       

      Give me word of advice please i really cannot decide/know which is best.
