i5 11400f or 15 12400f?

Hi! Is it worth to pay extra for i5 12400f? My gpu is rtx 3060 and 2x8gb ram 3600mhz. Or should I just buy the 11400f?

How much of a price difference are you looking seeing?

 

Also remember, 12th Gen is on a different socket + platform vs 11th Gen.

Compare the cost of motherboard as well.

DDR4 vs DDR5 memory on the 12th Gen, too.

Since the price difference seems like a non-issue to you, I'd personally go for the 12th gen CPU (and motherboard) since it's more modern.

You don't NEED to use DDR5 RAM, but it's nice to have the option for it in the future. CPU's don't get massive upgrades like they use to, so it's a reasonable assumption that you may be keeping this motherboard + CPU combo for several years, so you'll want the possibility to upgrade to DDR5 in the future once prices come down.
