Do you think this performance is worth 250+ dollars (new motherboard and cpu)? http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/421/Intel_Core_i5_i5-4... Reply to allocco91 m 0 l Best solution SchizTech a b à CPUs January 10, 2014 8:25:34 PM The improvement in performance per-core, per-clock rate isn't huge by any means, and you'd need a new MOBO to boot.
