  1. Your CPU is fine. In most cases the i7 will provide no performance boost.

    the i7 is basically the hyperthreaded version of the i5 ...that gives the i7 round about a 50% performance boost (in most cases)...however the performance gain in games is really not that significant, if at all...dont upgrade that i5 4430, its plenty fast for next gen gaming, plus i think next gen gaming is going to move away from cpus and focus more on the gpu anyways, since their compute power is alot more in other words, dont upgrade the'll be just fine
  3. Thanks for the answer guys im happy to save some money from my pocket
