Thanks for linking that thread. You have basically opened my eyes lol.
So if i go with what's being said in that thread, a jump is ONLY recommended if going from I5 -> I7. Then you should go for a newer gen.
Ill start searching for an i7 then. If i find one is suitable range, sure otherwise i'd stick with my 2500k for now.
Thanks again for the information, it was really helpful.
Hey thanks for the advice!
I'll actually, HOPEFULLY, be going for 3570k instead of the non k versions.
I was hoping for the non k version to save some money, as the mobo i'm going for will not have overclocking facility as i have realized from my recent experience that no game can ever utilize 4.5ghz of speed anyway. its all on Gpu.
But ill be going for either 3570 OR 3570k.
Inactive threads have automatic closure time of 6 months.
That said, MSI Afterbruner (with Kombuster, packaged) has taken the lead, while it was based on same tech as Furmark. So there is no point reopening that thread.
However, there are no restrictions (other than the rules) so you can go ahead and make a new thread for MSI Afterbruner, if it pleases you. Make sure to search the forum first, to make sure such thread does not exist already.
