Want a new Processor.

Thu Dec 02, 2010 8:29 pm

Hey all, im currently running an overclocked Intel Quad Core Q6600 Overclocked (you can look at my specs below) and after 3 years ive been thinking about an upgrade. Dont get me wrong, this processor has defenitely met most of my needs, yet I want my computer to be faster and I want to get back into some semi-hardcore gaming on my computer. I was thinking about getting a new intel i7. I want something under $400 and something thats at least a speed of 3.0Ghz factory clock and to be able to OC it to around 3.6 or so. Any suggestions? Lemme know what you think. And it would be nice if you could include a link to the product too :) Thanks Guys

Core i5 760, $205.
Core i7 875K, $330.

Both of these are awesome on their own and have great overclock potential.

But Sandy Bridge CPUs are just coming up (and new Phenoms too), and unless you're really dying to upgrade, you should wait a month or two and see what they bring to the table.
