i5 4670K vs i7 4770K for GAMING + Video Editing ! Which to buy!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
The i7 4770k on microcenter only 279$:

The i5 4670K at microcenter $199.
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=583302

I mainly game 75% of the time and record all my gameplay and render using sony vegas/Adobe After effects and upload to my youtube channel.

Which CPU chip would you recommend? I would obviously overclock. Could someone explain the differences.

My sig rig currently is listed below.

I plan to get a CPU + Motherboard combo deal at microcenter.

Man, I want to punch Microcenter right in the face for offering those prices but not having a store within 2000 miles of me.

I would just overclock your 2600k more. So far there appears to be little to no performance gain, but if you have money to burn more power to you. thumb.gif

Yeah lol, I'm kind of pissed I purchased my 2600K and Asrock mobo from newegg.com

I mean, newegg is great for other periphereals, but microcenter has teh combo dealsd and it's so cheap

Also, the price includes so many more things like the replacement plan, where if something new comes out, they will replace with the newest technology....

So happy I live near Chicago! This time I am definitely going with microcetner!

Honestly a second 680 and a overclock of about 4.8 on that 2600k will do much much more then that cpu upgrade.
