I dont mean this to be rude at all but HP you do realize that the 2600k is a different socket than your 750 correct?
post #34 of 46
Hello guys, i've been watching this thread and i found myself wondering if i should make the very same upgrade i5 750 to i7 2600k.
Beeing aware of the socket change, it would mean a kinda huge investment to me.

It really isn't worthy it tough, is it?
Thanks!

i mean for gaming purposes.

Probably not, overclock your 750 to 4GHz you'll do fine with a single 580.

If it's just gaming, I don't see the point in upgrading. Just OC it and you will be fine for gaming. A GTX 580 wont be bottlenecked at all. But, if you are doing stuff like Autocad, 3Ds Max, video encoding or other stuff, its a different story then.

If it's just for gaming, I don't think it's worth upgrading the CPU yet. The i5-750 is still quite good. I'd recommend waiting at least until one generation after Ivy Bridge.

It would be worth your while to get a better graphics card, a SSD, and 2 more GB of RAM.
