I'll have to agree. I upgraded and really noticed no change what so ever. The only real reason I upgraded was because I was able to scoop up an i7 4770k from microcenter for $199 and actually sold my i5 2500k for $215ish on ebay. Even the refresh for devils canyon wouldn't provide any sort of real noticeable upgrade unless you intended to overclock it.
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN3
i5 2500K at Stock Speed. (I don't wanna burn my PC if i OC)
8GB DDR3 1333mhz RAM
(GIGABYTE) Nvidia 660GTX Ti OC 2GB
SSD SAMSUNG EVO 840 250GB
HDD WD 1TB Blue
Windows 7 64bits Home Premium.
Hope that helps. Reason is because of newer games might need a better CPU, and maybe i'd plan on upgrading the RAM to 12/16GB. A new GPU would be good some people said (for both premiere and gmes) but to pair them better a better CPU would be required..also RAM
Maybe i'm wrong or something..Just wanted to stay up to date but also want a "Big jump that'll last many years"
