Been contemplating upgrading my cpu to an i5 2500k and pairing it with a Biostar TZ77XE4 motherboard.....But not sure if an i5 2500k has as much IPC as an i7 860?
This old i7 (original) is still faster then any AMD cpu so upgrading to amd is out. I know I can probably oc an i5 2500k to at least 4.4 or 4.5 but its just a multiplier OC vs a BCLK oc I can do now.
I basically use this pc for web browsing and gaming. Would you bother upgrading the cpu or mobo? All my pc games fly now...(since upgrading the video card)
