Current upgrades in mind. I have been advised several times that my cpu is bottle necking my vid card. So I would like to upgrade my cpu/mobo. I was thinking about getting a i5 2500k, or maybe an i7 2600k, and I have no clue which mobo to get. I will probably also add another 8gb of ram.
Ok well you'd be fine getting an i5 versus an i7 if it's only for gaming. And you really don't need 16GB for gaming. But like 13thmonkey said, you're really not going to get much of an increase. But it's your call. Is that extra 5% worth it to you?
Whats the game giving you problems? That CPU at 3.8GHz is not going to be bottlenecking a mid range card. If its giving you trouble I'd wonder more if your Overclock is stable did you remember to increase the NB as well as the multi?
