If you already have a 3200+ why would you upgrade. If your going to upgrade at lesat get a whole differenct socket and probably a better video card

Sure that CPU is a different version but it's not going to give you a greater performance difference. You might as well buy a 7600GT for 150

save your money and buy a whole new platform when all the new hardware comes out and people wanna sell there stuff on the cheap. I went that route and bought upgrades for a socket 478... ended up costing me in the long run.. save it then do a whole new machine.

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W
