    1 quick question: being too lazy to start a new thread: does most action games make use of a i7 CPU? say I want to upgrade to a faster CPU. Is it mostly the GHz of the CPU that matter? if so, I'll go w/ a faster i5. But if most game make use of the no. of thread on a i7, then I'll go w/ a...

    this whole thing on PC games is rig in the manufacturer's favor. It's totally unfair. You bought a copy of Corel Word Perfect, say you sell your PC a yr. down the road, you can sell the software. The same should applies to gaming software
