Some Advise - PC upgrade

Postby Fordman » 09. Apr. 2016, 13:11

HI Chaps,

Just wondering what to do. @Gavin don't moan :lol:

Currently I have an I5-3470 Ivy Bridge, running on a ASRock Z77 Pro4. Now I have obtained an i7-4790 Haswell, which obviously doesn't fit on the ASRock board, as that is 1155 socket and I7 is 1150. It is a whole PC that I have, so would I really gain anything from taking out my memory, gfx card and putting it on the Intel Board Q87 Chipset with the i7?

Cheers

Shaun

Sure you should gain a little bit especially in single core performance and using newer technology usually helps a bit as well ;) .

CPU comparision:

I would change it, if you already got the CPU.

Thanks B. Yeah I got everything, it's a complete PC, I just need to swap the good bits.

Just wanted to make sure I would see a difference as there really is nothing wrong with what I have :D

Just waiting for Gav to spot this and ask...what you doing with your "spare" i5 :lol:

Perfect timing . . .

Just when I want to get my 10 year-old properly into PC gaming :)

I5, thought I sent you an I3 :D

Spotted problem. The Power connectors on the MB are not standard so I cannot put my 650W psu on that board. I will have to sit and wait, as will need a new MB which will cost around £70 :( and the performance I would gain, doesn't warrant me spending that...yet
