>>52376912 M8, I have I5 2500k, if ill upgrade, Ill upgrade to something like your CPU. Why do you have desire to spend money when there is no need, Intel costs money, shit should hold its value. Another thing is that , basically ,progress of games has dramatically slowed down to almost stopped(if consoles are any indicator, last gen of consoles is almost same as this gen, with higher resolution and bigger textures, also, consoles can run 60fps, I dont know why they are doing that crap, probably some marketing bullshit, but whatever) and I really dont know why would you need stronger CPU if not for gaming(this CPU is "serious gamer OC grade gear" so you dont even have to deny that you dont play vidya),
yet if you really want precise moment when you are gonna cry about how hardware is extremely expensive and why the fuck do you need to upgrade this fucker already, is around 2-3 years max, then 4K(maybe even 8K) & VR will become mainstream norm, so dont worry , they will whip your wallet soon enough, lets say, this is calm before the storm, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Personally, I wait until I can justify buying something. My laptop hinge shit itself recently, and I was looking at getting a better laptop, but I didn't want to spend a ton of cash, so I knuckled down and fixed mine. Would I have seen an improvement with a new laptop? For sure. Was the improvement worth the cost, considering I could fix my own for free? Hell no.
>>52379109 funny thought that someone would give effort and pay money (in the tyrone vid case) just to make sure someone doesn't get more attention on their escape from real life like a desperate toddler.
>>52379077 No one mentioned GPU(also his GPU is still really strong), but if you honestly think that being rich means to spend money frivolously then you either not rich, didn't buy hardware with your money(your parents did) or you are just plane criminal and you earn money really easy, as comes as goes.
>>52379193 I don't think it was temperature related, I think I just got a dodgy chip that didn't handle overclocking very well. I think it's the Hyper 212 Evo X, but it does the trick. I'm happy with where it's at right now - anything higher and games start throwing a shitfit, even if the actual computer itself doesn't.
>>52376912 Seeing as how I just upgraded from an I5 650 to a 5820k a couple months back, you will be fine for a good long while. My GPU is next (760 FTW 4GB) and that's going Pascal unless the benches don't justify the cost over last year's 980Ti. Also just built a backup out of a 4570k/GTX 460 in case the new one goes down or needs a backup. The 650, you will be happy to hear, is still utilized in a home media server using my nearing ancient XFX 8600GT. Only real reason I upgraded was for some of the rendering and video encoding I do where the software can take advantage of all 6 glorious cores.
