3770k vs 477k vs 3930k

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So I can get either a 3930k or a 3770k really cheap, however if I go with the 3930k I have to upgrade my mobo to x79 (currently have a Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z). Another option would be to go with haswell and sell my board and 3570k when it comes out and upgrade to a 4770k.

I'd like to achieve some good overclocks, will be used mostly for gaming and overclock. Light photoshop and video editing.

You can't decide till the reviews come out.

If you are doing a lot of editing then the 3930k would be best but if not its between the 3770k and 4770k.

Of those choices....3930k still stands out. Personally, I am waiting for the Ivy-E in Sept to upgrade mobo/processor.

Microcenter has a 3770K for 229.99. Grab that and consider upgrading in a year when Z87 and Haswell is cheap at MC

You already own a processor that can do that....

With retail edge prices I'd just go straight for the 3930K...

+1 IB-E is also the next logical upgrade for me if Haswell fails to impress.

Here's something else that I want to add into the mix

How about, 3770k and use the money I'm saving from not having to upgrade the mobo/cpu and use it for gtx 780?
