As said in the title, which core is better for things like external device control software, light gaming, and sometimes having a bunch of programs open at once. (web browsing, text documents, external control software, etc.)

Thanks for the help.

I personally prefer Intel over AMD. Unless you're a serious gamer, do CAD or video editing then you're unlikely to fully use an i7 and could probably save yourself a bunch of $$ and get an i5. There are also extra factors to consider like using an SSD instead of a hard drive.
