Worth upgrading to SB from my E8400???
 
Hey guys,

I am at a cross roads. Would it be worth my while to get either a i7 2600K or i5 2500K over my E8400 O/C 3.6 Ghz. I want to keep as much stuff that I have. Just get the CPU, MOBO and Ram. I was looking at the ASUS P8P67 PRO for a mobo and g.skill for ram. You can see my system specs what I got. Thanks

If all you do is simply game then it wouldn't a significant gain in performance.
