Help with 3570k vs 4670k vs 8350

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay so I've been searching around for a while now before I get my new build (first one). Originally had the FX 8350 and was budgeting for a $160-180 MoBo. Now I've come across 2 bundle deals with the i5 3570k and the i5 4670k that will actually be cheaper, I just dont know how good the motherboards in the bundles are.

i5 4670k bundle motherboard:
ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131981

i5 3570k bundle motherboard:
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293

If I were to get the FX 8350, the motherboard would have to be $130-140 for it to cost the SAME as the 2 bundles above.

I also found some pretty good deals on a couple Radeon GPU's so will either be getting:

XFX Radeon HD 7950 Core Edition 900MHZ 3GB 5.0GHZ - $205 after rebates

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 Windforce 900MHZ 3GB 5GHZ - $225 after rebates

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC 1000MHZ 3.0GB 5.5GHZ - $285 after rebates

I guess what I'm asking is are those motherboards any good? This is my first build, so I wont be trying to OC the cpu as much as possible.

Are those pretty solid deals on the GPU's or should I fish around for some deals on nvidia cards?

Both of those motherboards you picked are quite good. You wouldn't be disappointed with either one (in my honest opinion). AMD's 9xxx series cards are supposed to be hitting the shelves sometime soon, so definitely wait for that before you jump on a 7000 series GPU.

4670K bundle and possibly a nice 760?

Cool, I think I'll do the 4670k bundle than! I had originally planned on it but had been working on FX 8350 builds just because it was so much cheaper.

Thanks, I'll definitely look around for some 760's. Since I'm in Canada, prices/sales/rebates are always so different than US. Any other versions of the 760 I should keep an eye on?

I had thought about doing that, but wont the 9xxx series be pretty pricey to start off?

MSI/Gigabyte/Asus are the best brand IMO to purchase.

It may or may not, but either way, it'll probably provoke a pretty reasonable price drop on the 7000 series cards. (Or maybe not, just a guess tongue.gif)

EDIT: Also, as far as GPUs go, I absolutely love PNY. They're incredibly underrated and make rock solid cards.

I also agree with the suggestion to avoid XFX. I'd go with the EVGA GTX 760 SC w/ ACX. It's a great card for the cost and in Canada the 760 is cheaper than the 7950 or the same cost but a better card.
