Solved Looking for cpu upgrade to match other specs Tags: Intel i5 CPUs Geforce Last response: October 5, 2013 9:40 AM in CPUs Share gnomicidal October 5, 2013 9:26:54 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.
