i5 750 4.0ghz Time to upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Been running my i5 750 at 4.0ghz since release, its always been extremely stable but I keep getting the itch that maybe I should upgrade? I am just having trouble getting objective info on just how much I stand to gain.

Haswell is coming out really soon, what do you think? How much do I stand to gain going from my i5 750 at 4.0ghz to an i5 4670k at 4.5+ghz I feel like it would not have enough impact to justify $230 + motherboard

Graphics card is a GTX 670

I'd say it's worth it. Games are starting to utilise the CPU more and more:

The i5 760 is there, you can say how much of an upgrade even a 2500K would be, let alone a 4670K clocked >500MHz higher than your i5 750.

It depends a lot on games you play. For multiplayer games it's definitely worth it, I've seen quite a big gains to minimum fps from overclocking my 2500K for example (tested games: BC2, BF3, various MMO games, Borderlands 2). If budget allows upgrade to 4770K, games are slowly starting to utilize over 4 cores. I don't mean that 4670K would be a bad purchase but HT in 4770K helps with some games.

Yeah I just don't know if dumping another 100+ dollars for the 4770k over the 4670k is a good idea for me, I mostly play mmo's and the occasional steam game with friends I don't even really like crysis and I dont actively play a lot of the common benchmark games, I think for me that $100 could be spent better, besides in the best case scenario how much would one gain in games from HT?

Thanks.
