hi guys i currently have an fx6300 and a crappy board. im wondering if i should just get a 970board and overclock to 4.5ghz will cost about $40 after i sell my board or completely shift to a used intel i5 3570 and i would need to add around $80 for a good motherboard combination after i sell my 6300 and mobo.

is it worth the extra $40?

If you'll be gaming, you won't see much difference, if any, but in normal compute tasks you will. I would just get a better board, I don't think it would be worth it, but I'm sure others will disagree lol

do you think a 500w thermaltake litepower handle a 4.5ghz oc?

this is my full spec

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2NKMQ and the site says my rig consumes 400w

I wouldn't do a Thermaltake. You can get a 550w PSU from SeaSonic which would be perfect for all of that, with plenty of OC headroom, for the same price.

Cause the price of a new motherboard and CPU, I would say no the performance boost is not worth the cost. It is much better in some areas like single-threaded performance, but in gaming the performance won't be so huge.

You will see quite a big difference depending on what games you play. Multiplayer CPU intensive games will see the most benefit. I would go the i5 route if I were you, as $80 is chump change.

BF4 and Civ 5 are some of the more CPU demanding games, I run an AMD 8320, my friend runs an i7, the different between FPS is <5 at any time in BF4, but also keep in mind my friends got a 780 with his i7 and I just have a 770. 6300 are fine chips I'm not sure why you think you should upgrade unless you have a couple 290x's in your rig.

Yea for the cost there really isn't any good reason.
