Upgrading my pc, i5-4670k or fx8350? - Page 2

Ram wise I think I will be going with some 1600 MHz ram with xmp, so it can be oc’ed.
Maybe a 8gb kit of Kingston hyperX beast 1600mhz cl9 or corsair venges 1600mhz cl9.

Despite Haswell's improved performance, Ivy Bridge is still a great option for gaming.
Try this RAM. It is low profile, unlike the Beast, and it has slightly better memory latency.thumb.gif

He said he was in Denmark. Which means that he's thousands of miles and a large ocean away from the nearest Microcenter!

Also, you had a bad experience with Bulldozer. That has no relevance to a question about an 8350, which is a significantly faster and less power-hungry Piledriver CPU.

If you can get a better deal on a 3570K than the 4670K, I recommend you go that route. Haswell offers a little more performance, but usually doesn't OC as well, leaving them about even.

AMD can offer equivalent performance, but only on games that use more than two cores, and most games don't. The 8320/8350 is better suited for tasks like rendering and encoding, where it can use all of its cores, than it is for gaming. It's a good processor, and it will be much faster than your Q6600 and eliminate the bottleneck, but it won't be as fast as a 3570K or 4670K for gaming.
