Guys here is a little tech p0rn for you (maybe) - I am upgrading from my i5-4570 that I got in 2014 to... Xeon E3-1231 v3 which is equivalent to i7-4770 - it has 8 threads instead of 4 and is overall around 30% faster. Here is full comparision:

I have been eying Haswell i7s for a while but their price is too high for me to bite, around 100 euro is not worth it IMO, but today I searched on Ebay and the Xeon E3-1231 was under 50 euro from Germany and I even got 5% off from Ebay hehe

I think I can sell my i5 locally for around the same price, so it could be a nice free upgrade for me.
