Still trying to decide on my CPU.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So right now I still have me e8400 oc to 4ghz. It runs most games great but things like gta and crysis there are some issues. Now this is what I have in mind. i7 2600k, i5 2500k, i5 750.

Also, I just purchased a gtx 560 ti.

Will all of these cpus listed be able to run games now and some time in the future at max settings?

Because if they do I can get an i5 750 combo on ebay with memory, fan mobo for like $300 which is almost the price of the i7 2600k itself.


Thanks
My System

The i5-2500K is probably your best choice. Cheaper than the i7-2600K, but practically the same for gaming.
