    Dude look at your core voltage, stock is between 1.2 and 1.25 on an i5 2500k, your on 1.57... The extra power it is using is not worth it for the small speed increase and the risk of shortening the life of your cpu. Your not using air at that voltage increase...

    @Browzer43, Dude, do yourself a favour and abandon this thread, go to overclockers uk forums or toms hardware and make a post there. You will get much better advice. And to answer your question, the difference between a 670 and a 770 is not that much at all. Which is why when you do upgrade your graphics card you want at least a 2 gen difference before you will notice any big improvements. You should proberly just get a 760, because for 1080p 60fps gaming that will be more than enough and last a few good years. I still recommend a better CPU for future proofing :).
