better between intel core i5 2500k and intel core i7 2600k for multitasking and multithreading

Well I was planning to purchase a computer. but unfortunately I am confused between the processors. I am looking between intel core i5 2500k and intel core i7 2600k. I am actually a multitasker. I like to do many things simultaneously. I keep 50 web tabs open, with music on with video playing in the background. So I am confused between the intel core i5 2500k and intel core i7 2600k for multitasking and multithreading. Is core i5 2600 worth over core i7 2500. Please help.

I think if you ask me then I would certainly vote for 2500k over 2600k. you're almost always going to be better off with 4 faster real cores with which you can choose the speed you need over 4 fixed speed with HT that are worth maybe 30% and sometimes even work against you. If you see for price wise then going for 2500k is better in my view. Multi threading and multi tasking is good. Let me tell you that the compile time of i7 2600 is slightly better than the i5 2500.

Intel core i5 2500 is the 2nd generation processor introduced by the Intel. This processor have the 10 variety or you can say 10 different i5 processor number from them you can choose your best processor. If you see the list of that processor number then you find the difference which is only in the clock speed and cache memory which make the processor actually faster in work, similarly these categories are done Intel core i7 where these numbers of processor is 3.

I think that if you carefully check the Intel i5 processor then you will notice that the core Intel i5-2500k has 6.0 mb cache support memory and 3.30ghz clock rate where in intel core i7-2600k we get 8.0mb cache memory and 3.40ghz clock rate, if you buying the processor for using at home then you can go with Intel i5 2500 and if you have the critical application work like related to animation then please select Intel i7 2600. You can certainly go go for the 2600k as your needs are.

the Most important thing that I would like to mention here is that, if you upgrade the ram memory then also you can increase the work speed of your machine. The price of Intel i5 is cheap than the Intel i7. So now it is you who has to decide. I would suggest you to visit the official website and compare the results of the both. There you will find more details. For hyper threading I would consider intel core i5.

The main thing is working with big program, that is why i7 2600 is better than the Intel i5 2500 according to me. You will see the compiler that takes time to complete the program. In i7 2600 the time taken to compile a program is fast as compared to the i5 2500 because of high cache memory and clock time. No doubt intel core i7 is better for multitasking than intel core i5.
