Thread Starter

My current specs are

i5 650 4ghz
Gigabyte h55m-ud2h
4GB RAM
Amd radeon 6870
Corsair HX 750W
2TB WD GREEN
ASUS X450JF

Well.. Sounds alright, but all i care is gaming peformance

It looks like my i5 650 4ghz performs similar to old quad cores in Cinema Bench R10
However..

Should go with i5 2300? or wait for Ivy Bridge?

yeah your i5 650 @ 4ghz is fine. No point in side stepping on single thread performance, get a quad core ivy if your going to upgrade. Games that only use two cores should run good on yours.
