Hey all, new member here!
I’m looking to buy a new machine, and I’ve pretty much decided on the Acer VX-15. It comes pre-installed with 16GB RAM, a GTX 1050ti, and a 256 GB M.2 SSD. I plan on adding a spinning hard disk to it so that storage won’t be an issue. However, what I am wondering is whether it would be worthwhile to spend an extra $100 solely to upgrade from a i5 to an i7. I know the hyper threading will be helpful in rendering the game, but how helpful? Is it worth my money to spend $100 just on this upgrade alone, or will the i5 be enough?
The i5 version is here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MR82G0W?ref=emc_b_5_t
And the i7 version here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N12YZ7B
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
