Looking for cpu upgrade to match other specs
Oct 5, 2013, 9:26 AM
I am currently running a Geforce 780. However, my CPU has fallen behind the times. I have the i5 750 Lynnfield.
Can you guys recommend a cpu + mobo combo that would be a good upgrade to match the 780? Also a aftermarket cooling solution for the processor if necessary.
Looking to spend around 500.

+1 to Tonyzet's first combo but throw in a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO so you can overclock.
