4770k or 4670k ? Help me make my final decision.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright, thanks for reading to begin with.

I am on a budget (not really low tho, lets say 3k) but I also do not like to pay something I don't feel the benefit from.

If purely for gaming I'd go with a 4650k straight away but the thing is, I am also doing some designing from time to time for my job.
I work on a old dual core computer now with I believe a geforce 7300 or something and 2gb of ram? Really old.

So the question if I will notice upgrading is not even to think about because, it's a definite YES.

But.. will I notice a huge difference between 4770k and 4670k ?
Big enough to pay the extra 80 or something euros?

I don't mind spending the money if I will really benefit from it, but I wouldn't mind spending it on something else either rolleyes.gif.

On the other hand if going with a 4770k is more "future proof" then the 4670k, that counts as a really big plus for me.

Thanks guys!

What software are you using for the design work? Is this like CAD type of stuff?

Photoshop, inDesign mostly.
I rearly use autocad, like once a year is much.

The project I had this year I completed on my current pc, that will give you a pretty good estimate of how heavy the work is.

I see, TBH I'd lean more to the 4670K...you're really giving up hyper-threading and 100 MHz (which is quite minor). I know for sure 2D AutoCAD will make absolutely no use of 8 threads let alone 4. I don't know much about Photoshop or inDesign so I can't say how those will be impacted, but for what it's worth, a buddy at work has Photoshop CS5 and says his 3570K is easily more than enough for it. So count my vote toward the 4670K and pocket the extra cash. smile.gif

I agree save your money. I'm in the same boat. 4770k or 3570k. Going 3570k and saving some money

i would get the 4670k and lean towards faster ram

considering faster ram helps in photoshop and after effects
