Upgrading to i7 from e8400- i need help Tags: Intel i7 Motherboards Components Last response: June 30, 2010 12:10 AM in Components Share zeroxerxes June 29, 2010 10:41:14 PM Hi guys, I want to upgrade to an i7 from my e8400. Do you guys think It's a good idea or will I notice a big difference? I don't know which i7 to get, hopefully someone can help me with this. Best model, best bang for buck? That means I'm going to need a new mother board. What do you guys recommend best bang for buck on the 1366 mother boards? I don't want to go over $300 on each of these items separately. Thank you very much. Trust you guys will help me on this. More about : upgrading e8400 calinkula June 30, 2010 12:10:32 AM Hard to say if it'd be worth it, depends on what you do. I game/internet on an E8200 (OC'd) and it'd be better money spent for me if I just upgraded my GPU and hard drive to a SSD. If you encode videos all the time then the i7 will be great upgrade. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
