Hi Guys ,

I currently have :

AMD x6 1055T @ 3.7
8gb Vengeance
MSI - 890GX - GM65
1GB Sapphire 6870(Stock Clock)
1GB HIS 6870(Stock Clock)
CM GX650 PSU

My Recent upgrade to CF has left me thinking is it worth it.

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.

2500K, you should notice a difference. You will need a new motherboard though, and you should probably go with the 3750k instead.
