Should I just jump on Ivy Bridge now, or just wait until the prices start to drop and buy a used 2500 i5?
Right now I'm running a G620, but I'd like to get an actual processor pretty soon.
There's only a 15 percent performance increase. It WOULD mean I could get by with a 500 watt PSU when I get a GeForce 560ti, though, seeing it uses a LOT less power than a Sandy Bridge i5. I prefer at least 100 watts gap between the max output of my PSU and the power pull of the system, and I'm thinking a 560ti and a Sandy Bridge i5 would pull around that. Or would it even matter anyway?
Decisions, decisions. Someone help me decide.
Also, who's upgrading?
