Intel Core i5-760 Processor Review

So I was running a Core i5-750 for quite a while, since it came out and I upgraded to a Core i7 2600K for my main system. I still have the Core i5 system as a secondary one but a friend of mine was looking to upgrade his single core AMD system to something a bit more modern and beefier so he called me for help and advice.  He wasn’t looking to spend a lot of money but wanted a quad core setup, since I was happy with my Core i5 I went looking for something similar and ended up with a Core i5-760 for his system. Since I was running that 750 in mine I took the chance to see how much or if any difference there was between the 750 and 760. I ran several basic tests and I figured why let them go to waste so I turned it into a quick review. So read on…
