PC Component help please

    Still looking to build a new system, I have my head around most stuff but i've never really understood processors.

    Can someone explain the difference between the two posted below please

    Also, what's the benefit of getting an i3 over something like a Dual Core E6500 Socket 775 2.9GHz



    Both the Core i3 530 and 540 share exactly the same technologies, i.e. Turbo Boost, same amount of cache, same GPU frequency and so on. The only difference is the lower clock speed of the 530.
