I'm going to build a new HTPC (Win7) and need some advise on what processor to choose. I'm considering;
i5-2400, i5-2405S, i5-2500K
The graphics performance pulls me in the direction of i5-2405S or i5-2500K
The lower power consumption of i5-2405S is appealing.
Any other considerations?
I would suggest checking the following comparison chart:
The green lines are the differences between each processor.
In order for you to determine which of those processors is better for your needs, you need to take in consideration if you need lower power consumption, or higher performance.
