HI just wonder what CPU would be better for me to buy.
i currently have the i5-760 on order with a motherboard but it can be changed.
Is the I5-2500 worth the extra $50?
what extra features will it give me apart from the higher clock speed and Better Graphics?
The PC i am buildin will mostly be used for gaming.
THX :)

i5-2500 requires a p67 mb, so you would have to change everything, and yes the 2500 kicks the 750 to the curb.

Where will the 2500K be 260? Newegg should have the K for 229.99



Any idea on P67 motherboard pricing at newegg Psycho? Will it be ~ the same as Microcenter, or do you think we will see them for less @ newegg?

Well I am still debating either the Gigabyte P67-AUD5 or Asus P8P67 Deluxe. I see the Gigabyte for somewhere around 260 and the Asus for around 230. See how high I can get it with my Noctua NH-D14.

Also, you play just BC2 or Vietnam too?

Both. Love that game


I couldn't get into Bc2, but I love love love Vietnam.

How is the comp league in BC2? I'm still stuck in the DoDs 10 team league ... and it's a pretty bad game except @ LAN :pfff:

LoL the super nerdy league play that I am into :pt1cable: 
ESL (Electronic Sport League) is probably the premier league but IDK anything about the BC2 competitive scene ...
It's like what CAL (Cyber Athletic League) was back in the day.

While I'm a gigabyte fan - For the x67 boards the review I read favors the Asus.

Link to Final words, so back track for specifics.

For new system I would go with the Newer 2x00k vs the older I5-7x0 (I have the I5-750 OC to 3.8 (normall just use 3.2).
