Ordering my new parts today from newegg but will be buying my processor from Microcenter down the street.
i5 760 = $169.99
i7 870 = $229.99
I was wondering if spending the extra $60 on the i7 is worth it. I only use my desktop for internet and i play WOW right now. I am in school and will be taking programming classes next semester like Java and SQL if that makes any difference also. The Motherboard i am looking to buy is ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 if that helps, i believe i can add either processor since they are both 1156 socket.
Sorry, one more quick question. What thermal compound do i need to buy from newegg? I am trying to put in my order now and totally forgot i need that but i dont know if there are differences or if i just get this :
