Will the i7 3770 be better in games? I read the Xeon is more of a server chip... Its £20 cheaper than the 3770 here in the UK.

not really overclocking with the Xeon chip though... you might be able to push it some with the BLK..

Both chips have the same micro-architecture. As such, the 3770 would be ever so slightly faster, but only because of its 100 - 200MHz higher (depending on turbo) clock speed advantage versus the 1230v2.

Sorry for being a noob guys.. but what is max turbo frequency? And would I be able to enable it on the H77 board I posted?

Thanks.

In games like Crysis 3 you will see improvements. More game developers are going to begin utilizing hyperthreading so I personally wouldn't recommend the 3570k anymore for gaming builds. Better to future proof a little with a 3770k. I went from a 3570k to a 3770k and I did see improvements.

The Wikipedia article on it can explain Turbo Boost better than I can, but it does indeed work on H77 motherboards.

The max turbo frequency is 3.9Ghz and yes, that board is socket 1155 so you can run it with the 3770k.

How much video editing in relation to gaming?

Get the 2700k; you can push it to 4.4GHz without much effort at all. It'll slaughter the 3570k at that speed.

Go with the 2700k, easy. Even if you do not overclock it now, you may want to down the road to extend the life of your chip, as I did. The ability to overclock the chip far outweighs the minimal performance boost of the 3770k over the 2700k.

Also, coming from Amd to Intel, overclocking these chips are a joke. You could go full potato and still be able to overclock these chips. It is as simple as setting turbo boost multiplier and leaving everything else untouched.
