Closed Which CPU to go along with mobile GTX 680M? Tags: CPUs Cache Intel i7 Last response: January 29, 2013 7:27 PM in CPUs Share abeaty1 January 29, 2013 2:36:51 AM Hey, gents. Getting a lappy. Strictly gaming/school. No video editing. That said, go with the i7 3740 6MB cache or splurge and get the i7 3840 8MB cache. For 2MB more cache it is almost $200 more. Worth it? I've been led to believe the i7 3740 6MB cache will be plenty fine...true? Thanks!
