The i5 just turbo boosts to 3GHz. You don't get much out of that. Leave it be. m 0 l Eldd October 20, 2011 3:53:52 PM doctor hwd said:I am confused abt upgrading my i3 2330m with i52430m.. i read d specs.. and i dont really feel dat dis upgrade is nt gonig 2 make much diffrnce for gaming.. i am having dell xps 15..
