yes the i7 scores better by little but I was thinking because the i5 is second generation and has dmi of 4.8 or 5 while the i7 has 2.5 gt/s . So i'm still not sure which is better for gaming , i know the i7 is much better in multi tasking and has multi threating but that isn't gaming. Well maybe i should stop beeing lazy and just test my peformance with both machines,( just so time comsuming) :P

The CPU is only a part of the picture. Post the rest of the specs that go with it - motherboard make/model/chipset, amount/speed of RAM, make/model of graphics card, HDD, power supply, etc.

As pointed out core i5 2310 is better than core i7 870 when it comes to gaming. I think the difference isn't that big, they are all fine systems for gaming.
