i5 4670k or i5 4770k for all rounder

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hello everyone! which would be a good choice for me? considering it is a 80$USD gap. I intend to play the latest game(bf4, cod:ghost) and also some older games such as skyrim, borderlands2, bioshock inifinite.

I'd also want my CPU to last me at least 3 years.

Some of u may suggest me to go for 8350 but i dont think it's worth it especially the 8350 performs badly in older games which dosent ultilises 8cores and also CPU intensive games ( which FPS rate can drop to 20)

If you are just surfing the webs and playing games just get the i5 you won't notice a difference.


If you want to stream to twitch.tv or do some kind of video/photo editing go for the i7

If money isn't an issue get the 4770k.
If you want to save the money the 4670k would be fine.

Kinda hard to say more wihout a price range.

Thanks for the replies! Hmm.. but i do not want to blindly spend extra 80$ if it dosent improve the performance. So basically i7 can do gaming as well as the i5 and also broadcasting? Nice!

With the i5 your computer should be able to do what you want with that setup. If you start pushing super high res, live streaming, or video editing you may want to invest in the i7. But for just gaming the i5 will be fine.

ultra at average 80FPS is it possible? (bf4) with i5

okay thanks for the advise. But what do people mean about 'future proofing' when getting the i7?

Future proofing is just trying to make sure your cpu will work in 3 years. If you look at it, sandy bridge still works fine just people don't buy it because haswell is the same price and newer. Sandy bridge still works after 4 years. A 4670k should be fine for the next couple years.

If the game is able to utilize hyperthreading of the 4770k the game will perform significantly better over the 4670k, but if that isn't the case between 4770k and 4670k there isn't a significant difference purely from a gaming perspective. Most AAA titles out now still don't utilize the additional threads from the HT, but I can see that changing in the future. The i7 would probably be better prepared for future games down the line.

Other applications like encoding, video editing, Compression, etc, really benefit from the additional threads making the 4770k significantly better.
