If I were to get an i5 or i7 How much benefit would I see in terms of gaming improvement. I just don't want to upgrade and find a 0-5% gain. I game at 1080p.Rest of the components will be the same.Just wanna replace CPU. Type of Games I play: Crysis 2 Max Payne 3 F1 2011 NFS:All BF3 P.S - Though it may look like a CPU section related question, The Reason its here is my Intentions are to find out the CF/Gaming boost Id get.
