q9550 vs i5 760 - Page 3

post #21 of 32
are you mad.. dont even think about it...
even if q9550 is older chip it still can match i7 in some things...
plus that mobo u getting there is no option for OC...
come on, every guy on overclock.net have to do a bit of OC...
anyway, i wouldnt change it..
those were my 2 cents

I don't understand why you would run 3.4 when you can run 4.0 on your setup. Do you realize how much more performance is already in your 9550?

running 4ghz in q9550 thought would stressing too much mobo and cpu.
3.4 is enough for me. even in crysis 2 with gt460 getting 50fps in 1920*1080 max hardcore settings.
i dont want for normal everyday use, so much power and heat to apply!
even now these days i dont care to overclock.
i want a silent cool (energy saver) pc.
gigabyte 460gtx is very silent and cool.

this is the last day and i have to choose what to keep!
abit with q9550 or asus with i5 760?

Keep the Q9550 and just bump the OC up to 3.6 or 3.8
