hey there, thanks for your opinion. the 3770k seems like a logical purchase tbh, Im trying to stick to a reasonable budget but if the product is worth it il get it.

those are crazy numbers right there...in my 4th year owning my ex-laptop, it ran at 90%+ when gaming.Two months in and it went kaput.I definitely don't want that experience with a desktop.!It looks like the 3770k is winning right now.Thanks for the heads up dude.

1% difference between the two cpus.
Not mention that when you decide to delid the 3770k will do better on OCing!
Good point, It really would save quite a bit of money...thanks for the input

Thanks for your input.I'm thinking that intel wants us to upgrade everything now...the next generation will require a new socket as the die shrinks again.

I say go with the cheaper option (3770k) unless you'll use the more advanced igpu Haswell offers.
Good point. And the features are not even that amazing that I would switch immediately spend on the latest and greatest.I'm sure I won't even touch the igpu and i'm hoping that in two months or so, offers start to pop up for the 3770k.

I doubt the next intel cpu is going to be a huge performance increase either.
Another good point. I was wondering that users who have the 2500k and the 2600k are happy!when it comes to day to day uses..comparing them to the recent generations they all match the same performance.
And im sure broadwell will be mainly targeted to the mobile market now.Intel won't use a new business model if the market trend does not change.Thanks for the input

Sorry if my post mislead you, and thanks for the advice though ...really helpful
