good upgrade? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Try and hold off until black friday I have heard through a friend (fry's manager) that 2500k will go down to $179! Yes, SB quad core is by far a superior chip to the previous core i5 series and in games like BF3 running a sli setup you would notice a huge difference. A dual core will bottleneck a 460 sli setup in very intense scaling games like BF3 at 1920x1200 ultra res.

I dont live anywhere even CLOSE to a fry's. Its 5hrs away. God i wish i still lived in Austin amd my res is 1080 so i figure it wouldnt be that bad tho i have seen i3s with sli 470s not bottleneck and im atkeast hyperthreaded vs them. Granted it has little to no effect on games
