    New 24/7 Acceptable? Or move to i7?

    Thats my new 24/7 Overclock, everything crisp, stable. Just finished a 6 hour session of call of duty: black ops. My question is should I stick to my q9550 quad core, Or move up to a i7 for great efficiency and maybe future proofing in games? Or stick with my current platform and Overclock.
