So, I currently have this.

750W cooler master stealth quiet 2
M4A89GTD pro/usb3 motherboard
AMD 1090T 3.8ghz CPU
Gigabyte 670 GTX GPU
8gb corsair venegance series ram
Hyper 212+ cooler for CPU
1tb segate HDD

I love this computer, but I know the CPU is bottlenecking me. I want to upgrade though it may not be worth it till later. I really wanted to get a I5 2500k but I can't find a good motherboard that I'd like to use for it.

Anyone have any advice on which MOBO to get for a good price that will last me for a bit?

Now, do you think it's worth me upgrading? from what I have already? So far I get really good FPS on every game i play. The only thing is i have massive FPS drops in battlefield 3 in certain parts down to 35fps from 135fps in parts.

yesss....

there is a gap between AMD phenom and intel i5 ivy bridge... especially for gaming :) 

i dont know in what setting you played the BF3, if you play ultra, consider adding 670 for SLI :)

Ultra of course, It still runs fine. Just you know being picky of seeing FPS drop. though I don't experience lag when it does.


On a side note what's a good CPU tempature on load for the 1090T running at 3.8? I currently hit 55c after 5 hours of battlefield 3 and 2 hours of metro 2033

Think I can go a step farther and go to 4+ghz? and if I do how do I determine voltages? or should I leave that on auto?
