I currently have an i7 950 @ 4.2ghz and it tops out at 70 deg c on prime95. The only hardware intensive thing I do is game and I'm wondering if it's time for a CPU upgrade? My buddy is going to a microcenter over the weekend so I can pick up a 4770k for cheap, but what's the point of spending money period if I won't seen an improvement in gaming? Is it worth it? Also working on selling my 7970 lightning so I can get a 780. That difference will be obvious.
