wondering if to get the i7 4790, hyperthreading may be usefull with the move to games using more cores

This is the issue I face.

Because I have AMD atm, I have to change everything.

So if I get a good mobo, I might as well get a good CPU then more RAM, and it's a spiral and I end up wanting the best.

thing to note is these cpus max ram speed is 1600, so if you have higher like me youll probs need new

seems the struggle whether to spend that bit more for the next tier is eternal

I think I will probably reuse all my old kit and build a server with it anyway, so it's not wasted.

i7 is a waste of money for games, and CPUs have pretty long lives so 'futureproofing' isn't really something worth thinking about.

This basically.

i5 is recommended and quad core nowadays over Dual.

Spend the saved cash on GfX instead.

Currently running 2x i5-4570s here and an i3-4130.

But might also be worth holding out a little longer as the new gen comes out and prices will be a little volatile for a while :)
