Default Re: Is a i7-2600K that much better then a i5-2500K

my cousin gave me $300 so that helped out ,I went with the i7-3820 and a AsRock X-79 Extreme 4 since they overclock just as good every one can do 4.6 some people are even running it at 5.7g.I thought about waiting for the ivory-bridge but it did'nt look like muck of a upgrade ,It should overclock better ,and uses a little less power.After I did a clean install my i7-920 and gigabyte EX58-UD5 seem to be working just fine now.If I had new this I probbally would not have upgraded.But since my cousin was helping me out I thought I might not get another chance.My GTX 470's play all the games I have just fine and might as well get another year out of them.I have to make sure everthing is running OK and then I will probbally sell them I have the i7-920 and Gigabyte EX58-UD5 and 3 sticks of OCZ DDR3 1600mhz 7-7-7-21-1T at 1.6v
