Id say if you dont mind the extra get the 3770k....just because. If youd like to save a few bucks get the 3570k and you wont miss a whole lot.

Youll probably want to get new memory though. 1155 uses dual channel memory, and your 3x2gb kit will leave you kind of stuck. Memory is pretty cheap so no big deal.

This, if you can take advantage of hyperthreading the 3770k pulls ahead. The only other reason for a 3770k would be overclocking, the 3770k tends to be a better bin, still need to be lucky in the silicon lottery but chances of getting a cpu that overclocks higher with the same or less voltage is a bit better, & 3770k tends to have a stronger IMC for memory overclocking (if you're into memory overclocking).

My doubt is in regards to performance, as in, "Which 1 is the better choice?"

And, for the life of me, I cannot find a non-bias review either way (both parties are guilty).
Well, there's the obvious: lower voltage, lower TDP, better instruction set, etc. If I were to combine all the benchmarks I've seen the Ivy Bridge is about 10% faster performance-wise than the Sandy Bridge clock for clock.

Excluding price it is obviously the 3770K, unless you are willing to entertain some of 6-core craziness. But there really isn't much debate that the 3770K is the best mainstream processor available.

Edit: I guess some would debate with a high-overclocked 2700K, but that would hinge on the luck of the chips (and your willingness to delid the 3770K).

Man, seriously, don't let people discourage you and remember to always do your own research before going into a new build.

Here's some reading I thought was interesting, involving benchmarks from AMD and Intel :

http://kotaku.com/5954545/how-amds-fancy-new-piledriver-processors-compare-to-intels-ivy-bridge

http://www.anandtech.com/print/6396

Regardless of whether you want to compare them to AMD, both provide a good idea of how the 3770K performs in terms of intels other offerings.

I myself have the 3770K, after reading the benchmarks regarding, editing, gaming, and a combination of single and multi threaded applications. Consider your needs for a new machine, whether you need the 3770K or whether you'd be better off with a 3570k or even a 3470. Honestly, why ask people to convince you? How are your friends or whoever making you doubt? The 3770K is an extremely good processor, although not huge, it was still quite a good improvement over sandy bridge and it still sits at the top of the ivy bridge food chain, and performs the best all around in gaming.

Honestly, because of the deal that microcenter has right now, i would get a 3770k.
It's like $10 more then the i5.
