o i know nothing will bog this i5 down its a beast man i love it warranty is up and been thinking another more powerful cpu for shits and giglesSee I've heard ivy bridge performance is noticeable over Sandy, not huge but definitely noticeable. It depends on what you need in performance bc the i5 will hang big time and I've never had a anything bog it down. If you don't want to upgrade for a long time, then go with the i7 ivy. It all comes down to money and what you need the power for.
