My friends computer just died and he donated the cpu to me (motherboard was completely dead)
Should I order a Chinese motherboard and overclock it, or should I not be cheap and get an i3 4170/6100 or fx6300 instead? It's an i5 750.
How much difference will there be in performance between the i5 at let's say 3.8ghz, vs a newer i3?
Australian prices would be $170 for the i3 and +60 for a basic motherboard.
Or if I get the Chinese one it'll be around 80 dollars after conversion for cpu+ mobo.
This will be my first desktop, I'm usually on my vaio laptop for computer related things.
I may or may not also pick up on video games since I have a few friends who want me to join them.
