My System Specs


I feel the same way about the three year old i7 860 in my workstation, even the i5 750 in my gaming rig is still able to handle anything I throw at it with ease. I too upgraded every 18-24 months for the last 15 years and I can not remember going for so long without the need for more CPU power*. I do not foresee upgrading to a new platform for at least another year or two, unless I suddenly come across a pile of money I don't know what else to do with. Good job Intel.

*outside of folding and rendering of course
HWC Folding Rig: Gigabyte H55N-USB3, Intel Core i3 530 @4.6Ghz, GTX 460
