  1. stick with your 975 it is probably about as fast or faster than the i5-2500 depending on its clock (at stock or what)
  2. +1, from an i7 975 to i5 2500 is not a good jump,... Also the 975 would easily hold for gaming for a long time to come,... You should look at upgrading your graphics card,...

    If you want to upgrade, then wait for the LGA 2011 socket CPUs(the replacement of the LGA 1366 socket CPUs)
