Should I upgrade?
Jul 31, 2011, 7:10 PM
I currently have a Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9550 processor, and just ordered a new Graphics Card (ZOTAC GeForce GTX 570 1280MB PhysX CUDA).
Should I upgrade my processor aswell? I am considering buying a Intel Core i7-2600K, but I am not sure if it's a good investment or a waste of money.
Thanks for answers in advance.
