Closed Upgrading CPU Tags: CPUs Gtx Intel i5 Product Last response: November 1, 2010 6:22 PM in CPUs Share AndyC682 November 1, 2010 10:02:31 AM Hi Ive just bought a GTX 460, and im running it on a i5 650 @ 3.2. Would upgrading to a true quad core improve real world gaming performance? (Final Fantasy 14, WoW, Dungeons & Dragons online) If so which quad? I've been looking (and heard a lot of good things about) the i5 750? or would i be better off investing in an i7? My budget is £220 ($350) My rig i5 650 @ 3.2 GA-H55-UD3H skt 1156 4GB ddr3 1600 GTX 460 oc 1GB GDDR5 Corsair HX650 More about : upgrading cpu Best solution mosox a b à CPUs November 1, 2010 10:12:09 AM FF14 gains a lot from a quad but see how it plays first, the CPU prices will go down by then (spring 2011 I think). The i5 750/760 would be a nice upgrade then.
