Hi guys,
I am in need of upgrading my CPU but the problem is I don't know which one to take. My current CPU is an Intel core i3 530 and I wan't to upgrade to an itel core i5 750S or 760. My GPU is the Geforce GTX 460 SE 1GB and I'm wondering which processor will do best with it sould I buy the cheap i5 760 or the expensive but has an unlocked multiplier 750S. Any reply will be much appreciated.

My current system specs is:

Motherboard: EVGA P55 SLI

CPU: Intel Core i3 530

RAM:Corsair XMS3 1600MHz 6GB

HDD: WD caviar blue 320GB 8MB cache 7200rpm

Seagate 250GB 7200rpm

Hitachi 250GB 7200rpm

PSU: Thermaltake Tough Power 750W

Case: Thermaltake Armor VA8003BWS


Thanks!

Okay but to my understanding the 760 has a locked multiplier right, and the 750S has an unlocked multiplier which means all you do is bump up the multiplier and overclock safely and effectively without touching the voltage and stuff. So how is the 760 easier to overclock on the fsb please do explain.

The Intel® Core™ i5-760 is where I would start at but you might also take a look at the Intel Core i7-875K which is an unlocked processors that you can use with the "5" series both that you have already. No most of these 1st generation Intel Core processor have been discontinued so you may have a hard time finding them.

The i7 sounds tempting but due to high price and my low budget, I'd rather just go for the i5 760.
Thanks!! :D
