Costs. It costs quite a lot more to develop on a node that is smaller, you need better optics, and above all you need to know how the yields are. Using an older node especially now is a good way to...

Probably a cost issue. I wouldn't be surprised if Asus is doing it because they don't really want to make a new motherboard design for a very very badly aging platform. Not to mention that the 38x...

Honestly you're probably better off nabbing a GTX 970 and then upgrading that i3 to an i5 3570k or 2500k.

If you're getting into 1440p a R9 390x might be within consideration, but it's all a bit...

Given that it probably can't overclock, I'm going to wager that any graphics upgrade will be helpful but it's pretty CPU limited now.
