If you need an upgrade from your quad-core Deneb processor
, you should probably be looking at a $240
Haswell Core i5-4690K quad-core LGA1150 CPU and a Z97 motherboard.$180
for a Vishera FX-8350 Black Edition eight-core CPU would improve single-threaded performance up to 20% (just barely enough to notice in routine use) and could double performance for heavily multi-threaded applications, but are you actually running something that needs 8 integer cores?
