Ivy bridge vs Haswell build help!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

I have a dilemma I don’t know whether to go for Haswell or Ivy according to many review there is only a 6% - 10% percent performance increase and is this increase worth $40 = R 400. I don’t know pls help clarify.
I am going to use this rig for gaming and Autocad and solid works. I will be overclocking.

Ivy Bridge
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
Motherboard: MSI Z77 MPower, LGA1155, Intel Z77
Ram: G.Skill, RipjawsX with heatsink, 8GB (2x 4GB), DDR3 1600, CL9
PSU: Corsair VS650, 650w (12v : 600w)
Case: NZXT Phantom Gunmetal Full Tower
R 8210.00 approx $ 810.00

OR

Haswell
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H
Ram: G.Skill, RipjawsX with heatsink, 8GB (2x 4GB), DDR3 1600, CL9
PSU: Corsair VS650, 650w (12v : 600w)
Case: NZXT Phantom Gunmetal Full Tower
Cost R 8577.00 approx $ 850.00

I already have a gpu: 2gb HD7870 xfx core edition, external DVD burner, working on an open loop Windows 7 Ultimate and 8 Pro and a monitor and 3 x 1tb WD blue. Which would be the best OS to use on my new rig.

I would go with the Haswell, I do not see a after market cooler so the 4670k will be faster period.

If you're going to overclock, go Ivy Bridge. If the 10% performance increase matters to you, go Haswell. I just got an Ivy Bridge and now I'm just sitting back waiting for Broadwell/Skylake. biggrin.gif
