There is a small advantage from going ahead a generation, but it might be hard to see, depending on which games you play. Also depends on how future proof you want to be. Do you plan on adding a second card, or are you just planning on a rig to last you a few years til you buy everything over again?

OP why not get the 3570k? Its a great processor for gaming. Where are you buying your parts from?
post #4 of 6
i would say a 4670k would be better the p version have the integrated graphics disabled but they cant be overclocked like the 4670k bcoz the multiplier is limited to x37 or x35 i dont remember that much


Hope that helped buddy thumb.gif

build #1 the 7970 is faster then the 670 and the 3470 is of lower tdp then that of the 4570 the 4570 runs a tad bit faster then the 3470 but also runs alot warmer so the 3470 is a better choice and the 3470 should over clock better then the 4570 will

If you plan on overclocking, go 3570k. Otherwise, go Haswell.
