    I read this yesterday, it's pretty interesting. For me I think my i5 750 will be more then enough for quite a while. I don't see the point in upgrading both CPU and mobo just to get a ~10% performance bump. In fact, if one were to overclock the i5 750/760 to the frequency of the i5 2400 they'd be within ~5% of each other. Definitely not worth it. :shadedshu

    For me the power consumption also counts so I think i'm going to upgrade if the time is right.
