Lowest cost CPU that is double the performance of Core i5-750?

Recommended Posts

I have a Core i5-750 and want to upgrade my processor (I'll need a new motherboard, but that's fine).

I only think it's worth upgrading if the performance is doubled.

I wish to spend as little money as possible.

Can someone help me find some of the lowest cost CPUs that doubles the performance compared to my Core i5-750?

I will keep looking myself also, and edit this post if I find anything.

EDIT: Found this. My CPU scores 4,373. Looks like I'm looking for something like:

  • Intel Core i7-2700K (?246)
  • Intel Core i7-3770T (?238)
  • Intel Core i7-3770S (?234)
  • AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core (?156)
  • Intel Core i7-3820 (?248)
  • Intel Core i7-3770K (?249)
  • Intel Xeon E3-1240 V2 (?202)
  • Intel Core i7-3770 (?234)

They're all more expensive than I hoped, so I shall not be upgrading at this time.

AMD FX 8150 8 Core CPU - $169.00 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103960

I have it and that thing is a monster for the price.

well, im an Intel guy. I'd suggest you just buy the Intel Core i7-3770K and get it over with. probably not the cheapest, but i find cutting corners in computers and technology is never satisfactory.
