I run a similar set-up on a 4.8 box (with latest patchlevel) that's stable.
I also run another box running 5.0 again with the latest patchlevel - both
are stable. (Both Intel board/cpu's)
Unless you are after anything particular within the 5.x series, I'd stick
with what's stable 4.x branch (not saying that 5.x isn't stable, it's just
that not all the bugs may have been found/fixed yet). New features are nice,
but not always 100% stable - having said that, personally I'd not had any
problems with either. Admittedly haven't tried 5.1 nor 5.2 but still.
Might be worth having a closer look at the difference in the two releases
and seeing if 5.x will provide any extra features that you'll use.
