Intel Core i5 650 vs Intel Core i7 870

I currently have an i5 650 and my motherboard can only be maxed to an i7 870. Is it worth it to upgrade?

  1. Here is a comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/145?vs=107

    If your system is based on mainly Gaming, it isn't worth the cost increase IMO. If your system is used for video|photo editing, CAD type activities, along with gaming, the upgrade would be worth it. No matter what, I would wait for the release of Sandy Bridge CPU's next month to see how it effects the current pricing (hopefully a decrease :) ).
  2. My system is mainly for gaming so i'll just wait. Thanks.
