    4790k 4+4 @ 4.4GHz. Not much reason to upgrade heat compromised Intel or over priced AMD. Especially as I can't even buy a faster GPU to match a faster CPU.

    i sympathise but there is plenty that benefits from a better cpu without needing a big GPU. One of my machines still does very well with a gtx460 in it.

    Re: QOTW: How many cores does your desktop CPU have?

    6C/12T - 3600 - I've struggled to really use 6 cores so more is just overkill.
    Heck I've found my budget 4 (A8-5550) and 2 (Celeron N2930) cores laptops from 6 years do the job most of the time if I'm not gaming as long as they have an SSD in them. I'm really not convienced have more than 6 cores is of any benefit on a desktop unless you are rendering or do scientific work (or something else unusual) and even then a faster GPU is usually more important now.
