I agree, broadwell seems to bring a better IGP and not much more.. 20% more power efficient...
post #13 of 17
IGP is really annoying i want intel to perfect the CPU architecture and give us true CPU performance on the entry level

silly IGP annoys me

AMD is the same dont get me wrong though

I do a lot of rendering, YouTube is my job, [I'm one of the lucky ones] but really, my render times are always 10-15 minutes which is really nothing. I could shave time off if I really wanted, thanks for confirming though. Really seems no real reason to upgrade, the only upgrade bug I have is for a new GPU, I'll be gifting myself a 290x for Christmas smile.gif

I'd recommend a larger monitor if you have the cash (2560 x 1xxx). Add a second 7950 and you are set!
Your cpu is fine. Maybe go for 5 Ghz if you feel the need for more speed.thumb.gif

My sig is actually outdated, I do have a larger monitor now, and I'll probably be handing the 7950 to a friend, and picking up a 290x smile.gif

Good idea - I find it more exciting upgrading a GPU. Plus its easier if you can't be bothered moving the monstrosity of a heatsink et al that you have in place! tongue.gif
