I5 2500k is a bit stronger than i7 920.

But if you allready have an i7 920 there is no need for an upgrade.

I agree. There is no need to upgrade. If your looking to upgrade, upgrade you gpu if it isn't already good enough. If it is a new system, your better off getting the i5 2500k.

There is no point to upgrade. It would be too much money spent for a negligible boost.

No, waste of money, unless you have plenty.
