3570k now or wait for price drop on 3770k?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
so let me explain my situation. im a freshman in highschool so i don't have a job like most. =) i get allowance or work with my dad sometimes.

ok so here is what i'm debating. i was thinking about waiting to get a haswell but i already purchased a the asus p87zz-v so im stuck with lga 1155(im not saying it as a bad thing either. =)

so im about $100 away from being able to afford an 3570k on ebay. (they go for around $200) and 3770k's go for around 280-300. but i have a sony vaio laptop that can pretty much run everything the computer im building will be able to because il be using a gt 520 graphics card my friend is letting me borrow. until summer when im going to work and buy gtx 680's sli.

so what im really debating is get a 3570k as soon as possible or wait for haswell to come out and see if their is a price drop on the 3770k and pick up that. il be wanting to overclock to around 4.5ghz

so which should i choose?

Depends. If you just want it for gaming there's really not that much difference between the two.

If your only going to be gaming, the i5 will be just fine. Save your money.

You'd be lucky to get a stable 5ghz clock.

Then I would recommend the 3770k.
It's worth it, W7 is designed for HT, games aren't effected in fact, some newer ones use threads however they can get them.
i7's rule the game charts.
As far as which one overclocks better, not sure.

Sold my i5 for ~$200 and picked up an i7 @ Micro Center for $230. You can do the same if you happen to live close to one otherwise just stick with the i5
