I want to know, if 4.5 ghz is a speed which is needed for modern(2009-2011) games. Some people say that 3.9ghz-3.8 is more then enough. So i am kinda confused a bit. One more question, i am also using programs as fraps, vegas pro, adobe photoshop and adobe after effects, so do those programs perform better at 4.5 ghz or they also do not need more than 3.8-4.0 ghz.
Funnily enough I have a 2600K and it's currently running @ 4.5 GHz.
It is overkill. It was overkill at stock speeds.
I am pretty confident it will do 5 GHz in my system, but I simply do not need to bother at the moment.
