Depends on what you gonna do with your computer. If you are into gameplaying, go for the i5 3570k if ou are more into hyperthreading stuff like video editing ore encoding go for i7 3770k

It would help if you'd tell us the main use of the system and will you run any apps that would be CPU intensive.

3770k, which is what I wish I had gone with over my 3570k. When I bought my 3570k it was still a widely held belief that games never used more than 4 cores and that HT did not benefit gaming. Now though it has been shown that some games (e.g.-Crysis 3, Planetside 2) actually do benefit from HT. Also, you may be able to get a 3570k or 3770k for less than the prices you see shown on PCPartpicker. Several members here have had luck getting Best Buy to price match Microcenters advertised prices, as low as $179 for the 3570k.

Yeah, I might go to microcenter and get a i5 or i7 cpu. I want to main us the computer for gaming. Games like Garry's Mod, ArmA 2, Minecraft and etc. Yeah, I know my build needs work. I might change the graphics card once I get more cash and when I buy the setup. tongue.gif

not looking at the system, get the 3570k if you are gaming or very light editing, if you are doing lots of video editing, get the 3770k

 

seeing what you are playing, you almost might as well go with an i3 (i dont know how cpu intensive minecraft is)

Get an 3570k if your not gonna be doing that much editing and if ur really not gonna use the hyperthreading offered in 3770k. You can also save some cash and spend it towards GPU wink.gif

If you are just gaming, watching movies, etc, then 3570k. If you need the extra horse power because you folding, encoding, transcoding, rendering, etc., then your best bet would be the 3770k. Most games won't take advantage of the extra threads provided by the 3770k, so it would be more of a waste to get that. You could take the extra 100 you save from that and put it toward something else, like a better graphics card.
