How's the future looking for the Core i5 750?

I built my computer at Christmas 2009 so it's about to cross the 4 year mark (my previous computer didn't even last that long; built it in 2007 and then went to this in 2009).

I think my GPU (Radeon HD 6870) is doing okay but the CPU is a bit aged, I believe.

Should I hang onto it through next year?

Are you planning to play any new games? Your computer is still able to run the newer games. Just depends if you want to spend money.

Yeah the thing is I am not sure if Intel has anything planned any time soon.

Yeah man, I probably would if it's done you well so far. There's nothing coming out for the next year that I can think of that would be too taxing for that CPU to run at acceptable settings. If you're mainly gaming and doing everyday tasks you're probably good to go for another year.

Ivy-E is coming out later this year and Haswell-E is pretty much confirmed for next year. No idea if they are bringing Broadwell to desktops or not. Even if they did I'm sure it would just be another 10% increase if that.

Just stick until you notice it's fell behind.

I have the i5 760. I planned on upgrading it , but I find little reason to do so. In the games I play most (BF3 , DOTA2, Starcraft2, Counter Strike GO) it still performs really well. I will have to find out how it performs in BF4. If it does well, I might not upgrade for another year or so.

When I play the occasional demanding single player game (The witcher 2 etc.) I may not be able to max it while keeping a nice framerate at 1080p, but it performs well enough imo.

I had an i5 Lynnfield that lasted me a good 4 years. I just recently built this year because I wanted a bit more power for playing BF3 and for some video editing.

Most people have more CPU processing power than they know what to do with. I can't see anything coming in the foreseeable future that justifies upgrading your cpu for at least another 2 years. (Probably more)

She's the original Core i5. The i5 series started with the 750.
