As an example the below from tomshardware is using a GTX 680 2GB, the 3570k is a good 20-30 fps better at 3.4Ghz. The 8350 is running 2x the cores and 15% faster clock speed and cant keep up. Not to mention its a 125 watt TDP part vs 77w part. The results of course will depend on the software, drivers, other parts. Im sure there are benchmarks leaning the other way or showing them close. Its upto you but personally id go socket 1150 instead, as the platform is better then 1155 imo if you can get it within budget.


if i go for 1150 and 4670K it will make it a 150$ costlier option and performance boost is like 5%?
Enlighten me on that a little. (Not Sarcastic)

I'm thinking i5 3570K with GTX660 and now you recommend me a cheap mobo that'll just suits my need for the time doesn't exceed em
like i want no SLI or Crossfire but want both nvidia and amd's cards to be plugged in and No Integrated graphics cause i5 has Intel HD 4000 already
so now jus focused on single graphic card, no onboard graphics, 2 memory slots cause that's what i5 can use, overclocking mobo
I was thinking about going with 3570(Non K) but i'll be adding graphic card a little with this configration so i thought HD 4000 can support me game a little rather than Intel HD 2500

Intel DZ77SL-50K Motherboard seems like a good take whether i overclock or not at 140$, Is it Okay?
some bad reviews about it by users like Display doesn't reinitialize on Reset etc.

so this i5 3570 and 660 specs
are they going to last 2-3 years.
cause this set up is gonna cost me a 1000$, that too without Keyboard mouse Display and a 360 controller.
add another 300 for those and then 5 Games.
Goddammit above $1500.

Damn this is so difficult
I guess I'll just study and then follow this gaming passion of mine Later.
I'll Keep Laptop for this year, save and build something next year.

Well the integrated graphics dont really matter if your adding a GPU. I am recommending a socket 1150 more because it has better features as a platform. sata6, better audio on board, and i would imagine it will have if not another generation of CPU's at least updates to the current lineup. You could go with a cheaper CPU then the 4670k, but you wont have any ability to OC then.

Its difficult for me to make specific recommendations as there seems to be a big difference in prices. If the 3570k and 1155 are within your budget i can see that lasting a few years, the problem is GPU's become outdated faster then CPU's. I have a 660ti and if i get 2-3 years out of it ill be happy. On the flip side i wouldnt be surprised if i need to replace it within 2 years to keep up with newer games. Not sure how a 660 would fair, you may squeeze 2-3 years out of it, you might find it fall short on more demanding games in the future.

This is why i said if you can sell the laptop and hold off for a while and say up some more money you will have more breathing room. Maybe an AMD system would free up some cash to throw at a better GPU.
