Hi deesh chandravanshi,

Intel Core i5 Processors are better than Intel Core i3 Processors and 3rd Generation processors supersedes earlier processors. I can help you with a comparison sheet if you can mention in your post as to which processors to choose from (such as i5-2500S, i5-2390T, i3-3217U, etc.). A good idea will be to visit marketplace and check for available processors.

Please do write back to us.

Hi deesh chandravanshi,

For a game like Gears of War you will need a 2.4 GHz (or above) Intel processor or 2.0 GHz (or above) AMD Processor. However, if you want to run NFS Hot Pursuit it requires a minimum of Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHZ or AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4GHZ. So, Intel® Core(TM) i3-3217U Processor (3M Cache, 1.80 GHz) will also be fine for running NFS Hot Pursuit.

Of the two processors that you have provided here, Intel® Core(TM) i5-2500S Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.70 GHz) is the one that best suits your gaming requirements. But, this process is End of Life (commercially not available) according to Intel's website.

Motherboard with Intel H61 Express chipset supports Intel® Core(TM) i5-2500S Processor.

You can check the below mentioned link for more details:

Hi deesh chandravanshi,

Here is the factsheet of the two processors:

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=/59080,65647

Any motherboard with FCLGA1155 socket will work with Intel® Core(TM) i3-2125 Processor and Intel® Core(TM) i5-2550K Processor will need a motherboard with LGA1155. You can choose from any motherboard manufacturer that fits your budget.

Java runs fine with both of these processors. Both the games (viz. Gears of War and NFS Hot Pursuit) will work fine with both of these processors.

As you need an additional graphics card for Gears of War I would recommend Intel® Core(TM) i5-2550K Processor and any motherboard with LGA1155 socket.

Please revert for clarification.

Hi deesh chandravanshi,

Yes, the motherboard with LGA 1155 socket will adjust your ATI Radeon(TM) HD 5450 Graphics card. This graphics card requires PCI Express® based PC with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard. LGA 1155 motherboard has 3 PCI Express 3.0 X16 slots. You can check the below mentioned link for details of this motherboard:

https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813135304

Note: ATI Radeon(TM) HD 5450 Graphics card requires 400 Watt or greater power supply. Ensure that the power supply you are buying is 400 Watt or greater.

Hi deesh chandravanshi,

This motherboard (with LGA 1155 socket) comes in several form factors. Let me know the motherboard you have decided to buy. A good idea will be to visit a computer shop and check the available form factor of the motherboard. Once you reply with the motherboard form factor it will easier for me to find a cabinet for you.
