So about 8 months ago I was a bit of a newbie and when looking for a cpu upgrade for my i5-2500k I purchased a i5-6500, of course not being an upgrade at all (I now think) and just losing the OC capability.
My question is, should I switch back to the 2500k for now (I tend to upgrade something yearly and recently got a Zotac Twin Fan 2060) , or should I stay with the more recent 6500? Both have stock clocks at 3.2 and quad core.
My games (shadow of the tomb raider, division 2, Sekiro) feel fine at max on 1080p (max my display supports) so performance isn't really an issue. I don't tend to track FPS long as I catch myself staring at it instead of playing the game, so as long as I don't notice hitching or dips and it's stable I'm happy. However I'm wondering if staying with the newer 6500 will help me in any way, or should I switch back to the 2500k and have a bit of fun with the OC. I'm not entirely sure what the newer generations bring to the table. All I know is it taught me to do a bit more research before I drop $150 on basically the same chip I'm "upgrading" from.
