This is the proper binary for the core i5, but that's the least of your worries.
 Your real concern should focus on whether Debian/Linux has all the drivers for
the various hardware devices on the motherboard and in the expansion slots,
including, but not limited to:

1.  GPU
2.  Network interface
3.  SATA controller
4.  Sound chip
