Well...as alluded to previously...just what is the purpose of the "upgrade"? What do you do on a system that makes you think that you need to improve components in any area?
"Higher performance" at what?
The cpu-world reference above is a good one, You might also be interested in famiiarizing with PassMark CPU Benchmark Data if you are gung-ho over "performance" and such. It's a good idea to believe that you have made good choices re components...but remember that every statistic that comes out today regarding "performance"...will be surpassed by products that are introduced next week, next month, next year, ad infinitum .
first thnx louis , and i can tell u that my current pc is already dead 4600 amd , dual core , G41 and so low quality psu , anyway the above collection i mentioned is not mine even i was so close to have it , but i am looking for hard gaming experience which is future protected , you see the upgrade i just mentioned costs about 8 k in my country , at first after seeing many phony bench marks ( from other sites ) i was fascinated by amd 8350 8 cores and its clocking , i can even tell that low editions of i7 had no chance in front of it , no sooner i realize that ironically low life editions of i5 can beat its ass ;( like 3750k , no i had to change the course of choice to intel -_- and its boards , many recommended 3750k and z77 when i mention 8350 , they dont even go or the i5 4670 , which made me realize that 8350 is miserable bleep for hard gaming , as for now i need gaming future protected ware for as long as possible in terms of the big ass budget i am gonna pay X( cuz after this if paid this budget on failure collection then i will only use it as garbage bin , this is why the AMD was blessing in my eyes ! yea everybody call it budget processor , my only preferences are based on the bench marks i see everywhere and others reviews , which can be never taken for granted , lots of people say blabla they know nothing about ( i can show you some forum debates that will kill you laughing ) " idiots idiots everywhere " , moreover worse , hardware dealers whether they r dumb or had knowledge , they just wanna dispose of their stock , so they will support ur choice when it comes to the higher budget nothing more X( , so now i am stuck with the choice which i will never get back off which is the 290 , but after i realised how bleepty amd processors represents in terms of future gaming !!! i am now lost again in a wide choice of intel cores , boards !!!!!!!!!!!!!! since you know that expensive prices have never been reference , also quality of two editions of same component can be so close , but so high price difference ( 290 , 290x has about 1 k difference here ! ) i need guide to the least expensive , the most future granted and dont exceed my needs ,still though i am ready to go for any budgets changes as long as it focus on the point which may cause me to sell my place O.o i am not sure whether stay in i5 or go for i7 now or go for which edition in either and which board suits watever i choose and can give the oc i need for my games , i had to make deadly balance between choice for future grantee & the budget which i dont know how i will manage its increase after the new facts , some old fellow technician told me once 6 years ago when i was building my first pc ( which i still have till now ) , " if u build up your pc for games , u will never catch the rainbow " , he is already gone anyway , even i despised wat he said then cuz it was so much frustrating & depressing , but now i know he was right ! but still am i desperate , dead after all this time waiting and a 4 month time of search between brands , quality , prices , also waiting for sales , which i already missed , after all this i am at start point again !
however who will read this , should get oscar , in case he has energy left to answer then he shall know he has overclock to be superman , if your site had a " drama queen " badge , i am sure i would get it -_-
