Should I upgrade to Intel 3770K Tags: CPUs Intel Phenom Last response: July 27, 2012 5:55 PM in CPUs Share andy_pandy July 27, 2012 12:56:06 PM I currently have AMD Phenom 1090T and I'm thinking of upgrading to 3770K? I use my PC mainly for 3D graphics like Softimage, Maya, 3DS Max, Photoshop, etc. If I sell my Phenom 1090T, I can get around £140. So, I only need to add another £100 for 3770K. Same with my motherboard, if I sell the existing one and I can but a new one for my Intel. I'm still confused. Is it worth adding £100 for 3770K. Any ideas?

For 3DS Max rendering, it was only 20 seconds behind. It certainly isn't worth spending £100 extra. I can easily over-clock my Phenom. Thanks, ilysaml Can't find your answer ? Ask !
