Downgrading from 4790k

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Guys I have no use for my i7 or even an i5.I have until tomorrow to return my i7 to get a refund. Should I grab the unlocked Pentium? I really just use my PC for web browsing.

I have no issue down the road re-buying an i5/7.

So Pentium or i3

Why not just keep your current rig? (If that's what you have in your signature)

If all you do is web browsing then sure go ahead and get the unlocked pentium and save some money I guess.  You won't even noticed you downgraded lol.

I simply don't need it? It was a waste of $300?

Downgrades tend to be very bad decisions in the long run. On the off chance that you change your mind in the future, from whatever you are thinking right now; which always happens with human beings.
