If its for gaming only go with a 3570K if you are doing video editing go with a 3770K

It is hard to take you seriously when you say "most stupid."

Only a few games utilize hyper threading from an i7. And that's the only real difference between the 3570K and 3770K. Like mentioned if you're using your computer for video editing or the like it's worth getting. Otherwise get an 3570K. Works great for me. thumb.gif

I use an ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 motherboard. Working great so far. It's got 2 Pci-e 3 slots for sli/crossfire. So it's a good motherboard on a budget with some expandability down the road. If you want to go Tri or quad sli/crossfire then you'll need a high end motherboard. If you don't plan on doing that then save your money.

I chose ASUS because I heard they were a good company. But, have since heard they're not a company you want to have to deal with RMA as of late. Can't say I've had to deal with it as of yet so take that with a grain of salt.

When going from a 3570k to my new 3770k I did notice an improvement in games like Crysis 3 in the smoothness of it because it utilizes Hyper Threading. I do truly believe that developers are going to start utilizing Hyper Threading in a lot more games so if you are looking to future-proof I would definetly get the 3770k. Better to choose the 3770k now so you don't have to regret it later. Especially if you might get into photo/video editing, music production (FLStudio or a similar program), audio recording, or something else along those lines. So my vote goes to the 3770k 100%.

As for Haswell, I personally am very happy with my 3770k so I see no need to upgrade. It will probably be 2 year before I upgrade to Haswell.

As for the Sabertooth, it is wayy overpriced. If you are going to go with ASUS I would go with a ROG board. I personally upgraded from my AsRock Z77 Extreme4 (DONT GET AN ASROCK BOARD UNLESS YOU HAVE A MULTIMETER AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES) to a beautiful ASUS Maximus V Extreme. The difference is night and day. I can achieve a higher overclock at a lower voltage and it is just all around smoother. If you do end up getting an AsRock board just remember that if you don't know about the incorrect vcore readings it will be very easy to degrade your chip without even knowing it. I was running an overclock with 1.45v and one day I decided to take out a multimeter and check the voltage and it was at 1.55v! Yes, .1v off. I also couldn't get my overclocks stable for the life of me. Now with my MVE it is so easy to get a stable overclock and I can enjoy my build so much more without all the hassle.

So my vote is for the 3770k and maybe a Maximus V Gene if your budget is tight, but if you can spend a little more go with the Maximus V Formula or Maximus V Extreme like I have.

Personally I would get the I5 with a good mid range board. Most "high end", really more high priced, boards are not worth the extra cost. They give no difference in performance clock for clock and usually offer features that might appeal to uber overclockers but for the real world do not matter. A good mid range Z77 with a solid mid range board like the Z77-UD3H is your best purchase choice.

I suggest an i7-3770K + GA-Z77X-UD3H mainly because this combination will last longer.

This might help: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Intel/Core_i5_3570K_and_i7_3770K_Comparison/

You can wait for Haswell. If not then :

3570k + Gigabyte Z77X-D3H

Budget and Good motherboard. I recommend it.
Really you don't need better CPU for Gaming. Trust me, i have i5 750 oc'ed to 3,39 > 3,4 and it runs games fine maxed with Full HD. With HD 7950.

Little bit better MOBO > Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H


If you want to render much movies and do multitasking

Then :

i7 3770k + Gigabyte Z77X-D3H

or Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H

Yeah i just sold my 3570k and used the money and just bought a 3770k ..i just got it delivered a few days ago, i immediately noticed a difference in Crysis 3 in overall smoothness.

When i was taking out my old 3570k..i bent and broke off a pin on my Asrock z77 extreme 4 motherboard...so i had to buy a new motherboard too..i went with mid-range Asus P8z77-V LX ..i got it for 100 bucks with free shipping...it's regular price is around 125 bucks..so i just bought it as it was on sale. But yeah...i noticed with some of the "newer" games that are quite demanding that i got a bit better performance with the 3770K....i know in the future the more threads will be utilized for sure...so if you can afford it..get the 3770K....at least you will be able to sleep better at night lol. After i bought my 3570k...and i saw what the next consoles would be using...i felt like i should of just bought the 3770K....so im so happy i bought it now... not saying the 3570k wont be able to handle next gen games...but from what i've read around at various computer forums....the extra threads will indeed help a lot with these upcoming next gen games..Crysis3 already proves it...so there ya go.


I also sold my Gigabyte 7870 Ghz Edition for a Sapphire 7970 DualX Edition video card.......i been waiting a friggen week for it to arrive...never use Newegg's FEDEX SMARTPOST ....its the most ridiculous shipping method ever created. My new video card sat in the next state next to me for two days...then left..went right past me and went to the state on the other side to me..and its been sitting there for two days...well its up near Greenbay now after passing my area twice....its suppose to be here by friday but i been waiting 9 days so far.....NEVER EVER USE FEDEX SMARTPOST ......you will regret it because you will be waiting a loooooooooong time for it to be delivered. They "fedex" works with UPS and DHS....so one day it'll be with Fedex which arent bad when they do all the shipping...but with Smartpost shipping..they then give it to USPS and USPS will let it sit at one of their hubs for a few days...then it will some how just go right past your city and go to another hub 300 miles away and sit for another few days there...then it'll finally get to you after 7-10 days of waiting....why on earth newegg opted to put this in their shipping choices baffles me....google "newegg Fedex smartpost" without quotes..you will see what i mean by other complaints.

I ordered my new motherboard 2 days after i ordered my videocard...i used Newegg's other free shipping method that time and my new mobo arrived monday with my new cpu chip....so that tells you right there to avoid FedEX Smart Post.

Didnt mean to go on a rant but it just pissed me off when my videocard left st.louis and went right past my area (chicago suburbs) and now its up like in Green bay Wisconsin...totally ridiculous!!
