Run i5 2500k or 17 3770k without GPU Tags: CPUs GPUs Intel i7 Intel i5 Last response: June 6, 2012 7:00 AM in CPUs Share marssawaeon June 6, 2012 6:31:36 AM So basically wondering if I should use the i5 2500k OC @ 4GHz or i7 3770k stock without a separate GPU. Going to be running multiple java simulation programs and other basic (non graphically intensive) simulation programs. cheers -Marrsa More about : run 2500k 3770k gpu jsc a c 172 à CPUs June 6, 2012 6:43:54 AM Sure - as long as the motherboard supports it. Both CPU's have adequate (for your purposes) GPU's built into the chips.
