I don't think any of those programs are near intense enough to qualify for the need of extra threads while gaming. Those are more like idle programs that don't really do much in regards to the CPU, but just suck on some RAM instead.

As far as fraps is concerned, just have it record to a secondary HDD and it will run much smoother because it takes the strain off your primary drive. thumb.gif

under pure rendering/data crunching conditions even a 3770k at 5ghz cant beat a 6 core (x79 system) at stock. but its 2/2 cores/threads better.
it does get close though

the only thing is the price. difference. like $400-500 more depending. to some people thats worth it.
if your going to stick with it for 4+ years you might jump on that upgrade.

but i think you'll be more then happy with the 3770k if you go for it.
grab a h100 and aim for 5ghz. should be easy. thumb.gif

I'll be putting a proper water block on it biggrin.gif I'm the FishCommander, didn't you see my avatar? thumb.gif

Also too late to jump on 2011 socket, already ordered the Z77 Sabertooth biggrin.gif personally I think it looks wicked... doing a black and white build (white braided cables, white hose) with Noctua fans

But for using FRAPS, you get more of an improvement if you record to a secondary HDD.
Say you have your C:/, you would then record to your D:/, granted its a separate HDD, not a partitioned one.

Sounds good, I'll be doing a build log if anyone is interested... I ordered an 128Gb SSD and a Caviar black storage... I can always throw in the extra 500Gb HDD I got laying around for Fraps if I want to do any recording. thumb.gif rep++; ta both ya's
