in terms of gaming - i am not too sure. i actually used the have the same cpu as you, but had an 8800gt and went from there to a gtx660 with i7... and i saw massive jumps in everything..

but you will experience less delays obv. you will be able to run more software simultaneously as well

but ya, mostly reducing lags from pretty much everywhere.

leo0787sx: OK I've priced this one up using Dragon PC as they are near me and I can walk in, seem to be competitive with those listed. Please check and let me know if its any good / can be made better / cheaper easily. Not looking to overclock. Also if it will work well together. sorry not good with the recent generation.

CPU: i5-4670 Haswell, 3.40GHz(Turbo 3.8GHz - $312.92
MB: Gigabyte (GA-H87M-D3H) Intel H87 Micro-ATX Motherboard, Haswell, Socket LGA1150 - $155.83
Memory: Kingston (KHX1600C10D3B1/8G) 1x 8GB Hyper X 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL10 DIMM - $111.25

Just not sure about the Motherboard, couldn't find any good reviews but gigabyte have always seemed good.

What kind of performance will I see over a Q9400 with DDR2 with my GTX560 in Guild Wars 2, Shogun2 etc?  I'm guessing it will be really noticeable?

The reason I ask is I know a lot of games I play - Guild Wars 2 and strategy games are CPU heavy do to the amount of calculations.
