Is this a worthy upgrade?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi folks im looking into upgrading my e8600eo to a q9650 and ive got 2 questions ,1: Will i get a significant boost in gaming (my gpu is a gtx580)? 2: Will a good overclock on my e8600 be as significant as an upgrade? thanks smile.gif

this is probably side stepping your question but do you already have a q9650 or still planning to buy one? i did a quick lookup on the price of a q9650 and looks like it is in the $200~$300 range. for that price you can already move to sandy bridge mobo and cpu and that is definitely a significant upgrade.
