    Honestly I would OC, just get this cooler and OC it to 4.0, the 760s are really easy to OC. The recent generations do not have much of an upgrade. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 What is your motherboard?

    The C-14 is better. Save up for the Haswell setup after you get the C14.
