I installed the Hyper 212+ so I could overclock my system, then decided I didn't know enough about OCing and decided I'd be better off not screwing anything up .
I use my system to play MMO's, do some word processing, web design and programming. Right now I'm in college to get my degree in Software Engineering. I do use MS Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, Visio 2010 and Office 2007 Enterprise quite a bit. I also use it to play: SWG and AOC MMO's and a few other PC games (Splinter Cell Conviction, Borderlands, C&C 4).
Or would i just be better off saving my $$ and then building an Intel i5 or i7 based system?
If you're games are limited by the HD 5770 and high graphics settings you won't see much of an increase over the current CPU.
Same for games that single threaded like many MMOs are - no big jump in gaming performance there.
