Just bought a new case, lian li pc-a71f so i only want to install the board and cpu once

I'd use the 4670k for gaming and steaming. However, rendering would benefit from the extra cores depending on the program you are using. I'd use that build soley for editing/rendering and gaming on the 4670k.

So,

It would be more beneficial to use my i5 4670k over the amd 8350 for gaming, streaming and video recording?

How much better is the i5 over the 8350?

There is a marginal difference between both.

Why do you have both if you aren't going to use both?

One I will be using for myself, one I will be upgrading the wifes i3 2120. But I would rather use the better one for myself as I use the computer more than her

I'm personally using my 4670k and doing an 8320 build for my wife.

Just a little scared to use the 4670k as the last motherboard made a loud bang when I turned it on one morning
