I've been doing upgrades, as stuff gets cheaper.
Xeon upgrades are also popular; I've upgraded my old Pentium D and Core2 duo computers to Xeon dual core 3.7G processors, that was nice.
They're only about 20% below the stock i7-920 now.
I'm looking at upgrades to my beast, an i7-3930k that runs at 4.7GHz most of the time.
There are newer processors that fit; some below $300, with 8 cores.
I want to blow ~3Gs on a 16-core behemoth, but I can't justify that.
It's fast as fuck already, and the Xeon may not overclock as well, lol. Decisions, decisions...
I do know from experience: 4 cores at 4GHz beats 6+ cores slower than that, in 99% of games.
And 6 cores at 4+ GHz beats 4 Cores at 4+ GHz, from experience, same mobo and memory and all.

I'm not Human enough to be human; but I'm trying to fit in, and I'm learning to fake it.
