So I've been doing research lately (I'm installing a new MOBO in my case) and I want to know what CPU will give me the best bang for my buck. I was looking at the core i7 950 (which lies in my budget) but noticed that perhaps the Core i5 2500k would yield faster performance in games. If I'm mainly gaming, will this processor be better/as good?

Hey guys so any help would be appreciated. So I have a PC I bought back in late 2006 (upgraded to nvidia 8800 GT later, already had amd dual core x2, 2gb ram etc.). I would save a lot of money just replacing the motherboard with a new intel mobo, adding in a core i7, along with a nice amd 6950/70 or GTX 570/80 perhaps. I've done the price comparison and I seem to come to about 500 to 600 bucks total (Mobo, processor, and video card). The case looks practically new, has major ventilation, and I believe the power supply is 750 watt. My question is will I have any problems connecting the power supply to the new mobo? Is it safe to say power supplies haven't changed much? The raid Hard Drive setup is good enough (600 gb). I also plan on just install windows 7 to the new mobo (since windows xp is what is on here now). I feel this is possible but I don't want to be wrong... Thanks.
can someone send me a copy of their Startup.exe because i replaced mine with the No DVD .exe before patch 1.2.... now everytime i go to install patch it says that the startup.exe file is incorrect. Please, im afraid if i reinstall my profile will be lost.
I run it in 1080p and I noticed some jaggies assuming it was light anti-aliasing. I don't know. If it was only opimized for 600p and every other game (like Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect and Gears of War) runs up to 1080p, Infinity Ward has some issues optimizing games. A nice group of gamers play on TVs that run that.Wicked_Spades
those games dont run at 1080 P on 360 or ps3.... ur either lying or u mean 1080 i. There is a BIG difference. Anyways yeah, i run cod 4 at 1680 x 1050 all highest settings with 16 X Anti Aliasing (CSAA) and get 60 to 120 fps.
