i7 920 Do to an i7 960. Is it worth it? - Page 2

A 970 would be a nice upgrade. If I could find a 970 for a good price, I would definitely upgrade to a 6core. Anyone have one?

Course they are the same chip, clocked higher. My 920 usually hits 4.0ghz pretty easy but then I have to start pumping it. My old roomie's 960 easily got 4.35 before he needed to make about the same amount of changes as I had to

That's what I was going to do. But I wasn't sure if it was worth it.
