Ehh, depends on how facile you are with the class. If you can hit 18/50 INT, then your mage gets substantially more SP and lower failure rates on their spells, which can help the early game an awful lot. The cost is needing to find 4 more potions of Constitution (and 1 less potiont of Intelligence) to get to the same point statwise that the character that invested in CON does. That's not a trivial cost, but it's also not so one-sided that I'd say you're always better off taking CON over INT, for a mage.
