3820 or 3930k or 3970x Tags: CPUs Gaming Last response: June 12, 2013 4:17 PM in CPUs Share daz188 January 10, 2013 4:37:37 PM Hi everyone I currently have a 3820 overclocked to 4.5ghz. Is it worth upgrading to a 3930k or a 3970x if i only use the pc for gaming on 3 screens. Thanks in advance. Daz.

If anything, you should spend the money upgrading GPU's (depending on what you have at the moment). At this level, the CPU will make almost no difference unless you are doing hardcore video editing and rendering. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
