Hi guys just wondering what cpu to get.
Its either the core i5 2500k or the amd x6 1100t?
on the internet they say the i5 is for gaming but i dont know. i will be using the prossesor only for gaming nothing else.
Also i dont know to upgrade to one of these or just keep mine untill ivy bridge because i already got an i5 750@2.67Ghz and just get a new mobo for the i5 i already have then overclock?
My mobo at the moment is some unknown foxconn i tried googling the number and everything but there are no results.
I dont know why im new at toms hardware but my posts keep going away like when i post,then the next day i cant find it again?

If you already have an i5-750 it would be a waste to upgrade to a 2500k. It's not worth it. Just pick up a decent aftermarket cooler and overclock what you already have.

I'd wait. The 1100t isn't an upgrade from what you're running and the 2500k isn't a big enough upgrade, imo.

so you think that i should just buy a new mobo?
also i can get a 2500k and a mobo for R500 more than just a mobo
there selling a mobo and 2500K for R2000 and if i wanted to just buy a mobo for my cpu now it would cost R1500 anyway should i spend R500 and get a 2500k

We are saying you don't need to upgrade. Your i5-750 is fine for gaming.

Why do you think you need a new mobo for your 750?

which foxconn motherboard(model number) do you have right now?


As they said - the 1100t isn't an upgrade (its a downgrade in gaming) and the 2500k isn't a big enough upgrade vs your 750: [...] 030-5.html

Both i5 2500k and 1100t are not worth to upgrade for gaming if you have i5 750 . The i5 750 is a nice gaming cpu .
You need to buy a nice MB and an aftermarket cooler to overclock it to 4 ghz.

Its more than alright! You dont need to overclock at the drop of a hat. The i5 760 and HD6970 can give you good enough frame rates for all the games for the next year at least.
