For standard desktop processors, Broadwell will use LGA 1150, same as Haswell. However, it's impossible to say he'll be "future-proof" for the next however many years, whatever he considers that to mean.

Future proofing doesn't work. Save cash and maintaining a more frequent upgrade cycle generally works better.

At the end of the day, if $50 is a small fraction of your budget then go for it. If it's significant, then don't bother it's not night or day.


If you're getting two 780s... drop to 770s, go with a slightly faster CPU and then save the rest for something better.

I agree with this comment.

me too, its a lot easier to stay current if you sell your hardware while its still worth something. that said if you think it will be > 2 years between major upgrades, its best to build factoring in that you wont get anything for your old stuff.

if you build a new computer right now on z87 with a k chip you will have a really solid rig for 2-3 years that can run all the games, etc. were you to sell some parts when broadwell comes out, or skylake, they will still be worth something. in about 4 years your haswell will be sluggish compared to whats available, in 5 years it will be an outdated POS no one wants. roughly.

i5 HW is faster clock for clock than i7 IB.. and while a good 3570k will do 5ghz on air.. its still slower than a 4.6ghz 4670k. You have the benefits of the newere chipset and features as well to consider...

Since you are building from scratch go with Haswell as it is a new architecture and is upgradeable to Broadwell. It is a little faster than Ivy Bridge and has similar overclock potential.
