Should I upgrade to Intel 3770K
Jul 27, 2012, 12:56 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.

You decide yourself;

Well, it not worth it. 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.
