Haswell or Ivy Bridge? Keep it or trimming out cost?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I want to trimming the cost for rig build by choosing processor

So, should I go to Haswell or Ivy Bridge? Because the performance improvement are so small
Haswell build: (Click to show)
Intel Core i5 4670K ($258)
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ($240)
Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4GB ($95, gah the RAM price was increased)
Seasonic M12II 650W ($112)
Total, $705
Ivy Bridge build: (Click to show)
Intel Core i5 3570K ($229)
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ($231)
Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4GB ($95)
Seasonic M12II-650W ($112, optional)
Total: $667 or $555 without PSU

For other components like graphics card, cooler, and case I will buy them later. Stick with GTX 550 Ti first before I buying GTX 660

So help me to decide to choose IB or Haswell

I am currently using Core 2 Duo which it soon to be retired as server biggrin.gif

Haswell, more features and as you said more performance per core by a bit..
It uses less power too, better iGP and it has AVX2 which will one day be useful.

Why do you need a new PSU for Haswell though? It uses less power..

I am hesitant about compatibility with my old PSU Thermaltake EVO_Blue (which it just 1 year running) because this PSU doesn't support C6 and C7 state. And I will get something is better to make them more reliable.

It should be fine, C6 and C7 are off by default I believe.
