  3. Good upgrade from a Q9450
3 years ago#1
Q9450 @ 3.6 Ghz
4GB DDR3 1600Mhz
1.1KW Thermaltake Tough Power

Been running my setup for about 5 years now minus the additions of the graphics card upgrade last year, surprisingly I still get what I want out of it performance wise with the games Iím playing.

Iíll be upgrading the whole thing apart from the PSU and GPU, thinking of getting a intel Core i5 4670, S 1150.

Wonít need the 4670K as I wonít have time to overclock anymore.

Get a sabertooth z87 and a 4670k, add a pre filled liquid cooler as well

A 4670k is a much better choice. CPU's last for a long time, so don't be cheap about it now or you might regret it later.

What's the difference?

Isn't the only difference that one is unlocked and the other isn't?

Won't have time to overclock? I didn't realize it took 20 hours a week.

When you work 50 hours a week, have a child, go to the gym and just want to relax and play some Dota.

Then NO I can't be bothered to overclock anymore.

I'll just google it.
