If they are the same price, grab the 760. They are basically the same chips, the 760 just has a slightly higher stock frequency.

The features are exactly the same. The 760 is a little faster than the 750, but not by much.

Thats $8. I'd pay the extra $8/5 for the 760.

The i5 760 runs at 2.8 ghz, has 4 cores, and turbo; it sells for about 210 in the US

The i5 660 runs at 3.33 ghz, has 2 cores, hyperthreading and turbo; it sells for about the same price.

The 660 has graphics built into the CPU. The 760 does not have this capability--you would have to buy a separate video card or get a motherboard with onboard video.



In turbo mode, the 660 runs at 3.60 ghz

In turbo mode, I think the 760 runs at 3.46 ghz

Turbo mode forces the processor to operate at a faster clock speed, like overclocking.

See here:

and here:

http://www.intel.com/technology/prod...d=tech_tb+demo

The 660 uses less power and generates a little less heat.

Both are socket 1156.

Both are excellent choices.

The 660 has a noticeably higher clock speed and would likely be the better choice in single threaded applications.

The 3rd and 4th core of the 760 may be a deciding factor, depending on exactly what applications you use on your PC. Or those extra cores may do you no good.

For the vast majority of cases, you won't be able to tell the difference without a benchmark.

Here is an explanation of hyperthreading, which is found only on the 660.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperthreading

It is a way to get more workload on each core, as a kind of simulation of another core.

Dude, seriously, use Google/bing/Yahoo. Types in "Intel i5 760". You will find a page from Intel's website with a the specifications. You do the same thing for any component you need more info on.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
