Need new CPU and Mobo

Post by Maha » Sat Aug 27, 2016 1:04 pm

I'm looking to upgrade to an i7 from an i5 CPU and a motherboard to go with it, anyone got any recommendations?

Right now I'm using an ASUS Z97-A motherboard and an i5 4690.

You don't need an i7 unless you have a specific reason for one.

His specific reason for needing an i7 is that he wants an i7

get an overclockable i5 and you won't ever need another processor.

im still running on my i5-2500k @ 4.3 ghz after...3 or 4 years?

just realized how old this post is. hopefully you haven't gotten an i7 yet.
