  1. Horrible power supply.

    Got anything else?
  2. hahaha, yes im planning to upgrade to 750 watt psu, is that better? also is my i7 down performing. I mean, it doesn't seem much betteer than my i5 2500K @ stock speed....in games such as team fortress two and borderland.
  3. Because hyperthreading doesn't do anything for those games.

    Hyperthreading will make a difference in multi-threaded applications like 3ds max, or sony vegas.

    You won't see any difference between an i5 and i7 in terms of gaming.
  4. hmmm, but would a psu make any difference. i mean my i5 was using about 90 watt of power, this new processor uses 125 watt.
  5. also you're right, looking @ the i5 and i7 benchmarks for gaming is almost nil.

    Talking like 1-2 fps in some games lol...wow.

    No.

    They use relatively the same amount of power.

    Though I would recommend getting a new one.
  7. The issue with the TR2 is quality. It's crap. Not a perfect list but it puts the TR2 in the right place.

    There is no need for a 750w power supply unless you run a high end dual card setup like 2 x GTX 670s.

    Components only draw as much power as they need. Getting a larger power supply than necessary gives you not 1/100th of 1 percent more performance.
