You will see a big improvement with Adobe Premier and Photoshop, as well as a bit of an improvement for games which use more than three cores. However, you may need to flash your BIOS to version 410.

If anything, it should be about the same. It's not a massive increase.

Rather save up for a faster GPU.

i think 4890=5830. Also i play on 1680x1080
will i see +10fps on this game? or no?

I'd say so yes.

I'm just saying it's not worth it to upgrade at this point in time.
