Hi,

I wish I had a friend that would give me an i5 2400!

In my opinion I would go with the i7-860.

The Numbers:

i7-860        |   i5 2400

4-Cores      |    4-Cores

8-Threads   |   4-Threads

2.8GHz       |   3.1 GHZ

The Reasoning:

8 threads means 8 little boxes working away when bucket rendering with Mental Ray. Also I have a 4-thread CPU at work and an 8-thread CPU at home. My home computer is faster at rendering and far better for multi tasking.

That is just my opinion, Good luck!

J

The i7 was MADE for things like rendering and high end stuff were as the i5was made for stuff like video games and stuff. Go with the i7.
