i7-4820K or i7-4770K?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Still can´t make decide, i will use pc for gaming (most of time bf4), little video editing etc.

i7-4820K + MSI X79A-GD65 (8D)
or
i7-4770K + MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING

which is better,I do not want to make upgrade at least for 4years
some OC for future

i have
RAM: 2x Corsair 4GB KIT DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Vengeance Low profile
GPU: Gainward GTX 780 Phantom "GLH"
PSU: Fortron Aurum Pro 850
Cooler CPU: Cooler Master Seidon 120M + 2x Noctua NF-P12 PWM (for now i have i5 2500k @ 4,5GHz max. temp. 55°C, 100% load)

the 4820 has a higher base clock, but you are not adverse to overclocking so that is more or less moot. The 4770k has a couple new instruction sets which may (or may not) become widely used in the future, So possible futurel advantage 4770k

The question is does the older board have advantages that outweigh this?

Both has more GPU slots than you likely need,

The older board has 5 which strikes me as highly insane, and a bunch of trick overclocking stuff that may or may not be good.

the newer board has fewer features, but does have higher quality audio.

You can theoretically run 4 video cards with the 79 board, but will you ever really do it?


If it was me I'd go for the newer one. the older board is filled with convienience features, and has a great rep, but if you don;t actually need or use those features they;re not good for much. The deciding factor for me would actually be the audio. Everyone uses audio.

If it was me, I would stick with your 2500k still and just push the overclock. At 55c max you have some headroom to push it more.

I would also do this. For gaming, a 2500K at 4.5ghz+ should be fine even for BF4; I think you will still be GPU limited.

Also for video editing you are unlikely to notice much of a difference from your current CPU, certainly not enough to warrant the cost in my opinion.

Go for the 4770K and spend the money you save on a better GPU wink.gif 780ti
