Well since I upgrade every 5-6 years I will go with the 4770k then smile.gif

Also decided on a Gigabyte Z78X UD3H, good choice?

Z87X UD3H... It's an entry level enthusiast board.
With the i7, it's going to be a very decent setup IMO
and it should provide a pretty good overclock too.

Edit: It did get the Editor's choice on techpowerup.
That does count for something I guess.

What GPU are you looking to get then ?

I am waiting for the new ATI cards, they are supposed to be awesome? If they are not, I will probably end up buying a 780 because I like Nvidia tongue.gif

Either way it's going to be a very tasty setup. thumb.gif

With a budget like that, I'd reconsider and get the Z87X UD4H then.
It's meant to have better power delivery system and better cooling = better OC
and it definitely looks better IMO. Love the black/red color scheme.

Just my 2cents.gif

It's a bit more expensive, 185 Euros and the UD3H is at 165. I'll check it out.

Get some Corsair Vengeance Pro 2 x 4 GB Red and 2 x 4 GB Silver with that and you can have this:

I'm going to have to say the 2500K / 2600K (with a P67 or Z68 board) combined with a good AIO water cooling setup would be your best bet. Sandy's are still very powerful, and can be had for a very good price now days.

Ivy and Haswell are very good CPU's as well, but they are plagued with the dreaded TIM between the IHS and die. Sandy on the other hand is soldered, so you'll never have to worry about de-lidding your CPU in the future.
