i5 3570K IB, worth upgrading?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
late last year I upgraded my computer with a ASUS Maximus V Extreme, i5 3570K, and 8GB of Gskill. At the moment I'm looking at getting a EVGA GTX 660 TI, or a GTX 670 FTW+.

I keep reading conflicting reviews of whether the i7 is better than a i5 for gaming. I realize the only significant difference is the hypertheading, So my question is would I experience enough of a increase in performance to be worth the cost of a i7?

Not at all worth it to upgrade. You can sell your 3570k to get some of your money back so that it wont cost as much for the upgrade, but you will not even notice a difference in gaming.
