lol. driver disc.



My current mobo is fried so I can't download the driver software.


So show that remark up your bum cuz I have no other way to use the driver.



... you can connect to the internet 99 times out of 100 without the driver disc. So you can show that remark up your bum.

Even then, he has a mobo that you need, and you have a card that he needs. You might as well, dude.

Its a 1366 board. I don't think those are compatible with my i5 2500.

All you need is access to ANY other computer and a flash drive to get whatever drivers you need. I never use any of the discs that come with my hardware, as I prefer to grab the latest versions available.

That said, I wouldn't take this deal. The 2500k is a great overclocking chip, and I would consider it a downgrade going to a previous generation chip, even if it is an i7.

I don't think anybody is recommending that he replace his 2500k with the i7. But... it's a motherboard and an i7. find a case, Attach a power supply, throw in some ram and you can sell the thing for 300+ bucks.

Depends on the motherboard but usually take it. The i7 is a nice overclocker and can out perform the i5 2500 nonk when OC'd a little past the i5's clocks.

The only problem with it is the higher power consumption so if you have overhead on your PSU; it's a no brainer.
