choosing the right cpu

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm planning my first build so I can have a computer for college, I have the majority of my components selected but the CPU is the one thing I'm still having second thoughts about. I was originally gonna go with a 3930k for the CPU but I'm having second thoughts if its worth it, since I've heard that ivy bridge-e is coming later in the year. Unfortunately I can't wait due to school coming up and the only PC I have is ****ty laptop. I'm planning on using my PC for gaming, game capture, video/audio/picture editing (with adobe cs6, my recording devices are a GoPro hero 3 black and an avermedia live gamer hd) and 3d cad (since I'm an engineering major). Will the 4770k suffice for my needs or should I just go with a 3930k?

My current parts:
Corsair c70 case
Corsair ax1200i PSU
Corsair vengeance 32gb 2133mhz ram
Corsair h100i w/ noctua fans
Corsair gtx ssd 480gb
Asus sabertooth mobo
Asus blu ray writer
Creative sound blaster zxr sound card
Evga gtx 780 acx 3gb
Avermedia live gamer hd

Go with the 3930k now, and use that for a couple of years. IVY-E isn't a real upgrade to SB-E.


You can upgrade then when Haswell-E is mature, the real upgrade to SB-E.
