A bit of advice here: it's better to enter rational numbers as
fractions, not decimals. Mathematica treats decimal numbers as
approximate (fractions are exact).
Table[{x,f[x]},{x,-5,5,1/2}]
or if you want decimal approximations for f[x]:
Table[{x,N[f[x]]},{x,-5,5,1/2}]
You can specify the number of significant digits you want.
Table[{x,N[f[x],10]},{x,-5,5,1/2}]

Do it like this.
Table[{x, f[x]}, {x, {-3, 1/2, 3, 10, 104}}]
Note the curly braces around the list of x-values.
You might like to display it as a Grid.
Grid[Table[{x, f[x]}, {x, {-3, 1/2, 3, 10, 104}}],Frame->All]
