To truly beat the 750k AMD wise, you would need the 6350, which is a six core, or the 8350, but then price comes in to play. AMD is making game and other software companies come to team reds aid, so you will see things work much better on them. Also you have Kaveri coming out in Q4, or Q1-14, which will by enlarge be AWESOME! GCN cores, and Steamroller architecture, plus HSA and the like... It's going to be baller, and we don't know if they will be backwards compatible yet or not, so we have that to look forward to as well possibly on FM2. Ohh, and I got mine stable to 4.5Ghz today.. Working on 4.6!!!
Yeah thanks for the link as its shows the 750K is a whole step above the Q9650 and is about in the same bracket as the Extreme QX9650!!
I also went to anandtech.com and used the bench option to compare cpu's and the 750k is just barely 20% stonger then the Q9650 and only 5% weaker then the I7 920 LGA1366.
This puts my mind at ease so I will stick with the plans and go with the 750K after all.
Not a bad upgrade if you ask me specially when im only paying $75 bucks out of my pocket to do so.
