Currently have an i3 2120. Was thinking about upgrading to an i5, but not sure which gen I should upgrade too. Going for a sandy or ivy would be much cheaper, since I wouldn't need to upgrade the mobo also, but I'm not sure if the performance boost would be better enough to warrant it. I don't ever plan on overclocking either, so that could be taken into consideration.

An i5 3570 would be your best bet. The gain a 4670 would provide wouldn't be worth getting a new mobo for tbh.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
