Closed Upgrading CPU Tags: CPUs Gtx Intel i5 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 | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Best solution mosox CPUs Authority 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. | Report abuse mi1ez CPUs Expert November 1, 2010 10:59:31 AM +1 | Report abuse 55Range CPUs Expert November 1, 2010 11:33:15 AM +1 I5 750 or 760, only for gaming, it will not be worth buying an i7, the i5 750 does better. perf/price ratio- Go with the 750 or, 760 if no big difference in price- | Report abuse Related ressources Help upgrading my CPU /Video - Forum Upgrading cpu NEED YOUR HELP!!! :( - Forum No Post after Upgrading the CPU & MOBO - Forum Finally upgrading my CPU - Forum Upgrading graphics card on old CPU - makes sense or not? - Forum Ask the community Publish AndyC682 November 1, 2010 5:49:06 PM Wicked Thanks for the info guys | Report abuse AndyC682 November 1, 2010 5:49:16 PM Best answer selected by AndyC682. | Report abuse Mousemonkey CPUs Authority November 1, 2010 6:22:26 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Upgrading CPU> Related ressources: ForumUpgrading CPu to Core 2 Quad q6600 or 9500 ForumUpgrading cpu for Skyrim - Tight budget ForumUpgrading CPU and Motherboard ForumUpgrading a laptop cpu ForumWant to improve FPS, upgrading CPU ?
