    Hello everyone. New here. Had a quick question. Can give full details if its not a cut and dry question or answer... whats better for gaming (Rust) an i5 4430 or an i7 870. (1st gen i7) my gpu is a gtx 980. I have 32gb ddr3 ripjaw ram and an ssd. Dell mobo from 2013. (Was a dell xps8700 that ive been upgrading... it came with an i5... i just aquired this older i7. Thanks!

    Btw my current setup runs rust flawlessly on ultra with grphx maxed.... well flawlessly to me is just smooth and pretty i get 35-50 fps. When demo'ing big structures 1fps is not uncommon lol.. Rust has to be one of the most demanding cpu/gpu/ram games

    The i5 is faster in single threaded and multi thread applications. Also the i7 is incompatible with the LGA1150 socket used by the i5.

    Didn't you post something recently about your computer and Rust from a different profile?
