I don't know, but i think with i5 750 i will play games in next 2 years, maybe more.
So after view this link and comparation, yes i will go with i5 750.
I think 40$ more worth for sure.
LOL ty for the link.
Good call, and by dead socket I don't mean Intel will completely stop supporting socket 1156, I simply meant that there won't be any more processors developed for the platform, so his options for upgrading are very limited. That being said, the i5 750 is a very good cpu and will definitely hold you off until you want to upgrade in a couple years...You'll have to buy a new mobo, of course
Ofc, i everytime when buy new CPU i look and for new mobo. This CPU for sure will handle game and new ver. of Windows in next 2 years, even more. After two years this mobo will be ***, and i go for new one
Well I noticed a lot of people are choosing which procesor to buy due to that bench graph (especially between i5 750 and x4 955).
Anand took those results from there reviews and if you look at the 955 review, he used an AM2+ motherboard with DDR2 ram. If he would used AM3 with DDR3 ram, results would be much better. So for gaming theres almost no difference between the two, excluded few games which run better with intel (Far Cry 2 for example).
As already said only thing is future proof, but if you always buy a new motherboard then the i5 is a great deal.
