Any game on the market? Try i5 2400 @3.1 vs i7 4930k Overclocked on Skyrim.

this shows an i3 getting more than 70 frames a second. fps only needs to be as high as your monitor's refresh rate, going from 90 fps to 120fps you wont see a difference on a 60 hz monitor

also, skyrim is not the heaviest cpu user out there. Crysis 3, Battlefield 4 and Sins of a Solar Empire have it beat I'd wager

Listen i was with the same dilema a while a go and i just made my mind on the 3930K just because i better than the 4770K overrall
you can get a nice X79 Mobo for just between 220-250 dollars.

the 4770k is a nice CPU and really good but you are already bying a dead socket and no upgrade in the future and no one would buy a 4770k and 1150 mobo used when there is a 5770k and z97 mobo at the end of the year.

so as of right now get a 6C CPU that will hold u even when the Haswell E hit the shelves and there is a big posibbility
to get the socket 2011 compatible with Haswell E just with a Bios Update we dont know what the future holds
since the same happens with the 4930k no one knew back then i was able to be put in the same socket just with a bios update....

6C will be useful in many ways not just gaming form now on.

x 79 is also a dead socket, it will be getting replaced by the end of the year also, so that argument is invalid.

Ive only glanced over other replies, so excuse me if i missed something.

IMO, the i7-48xx and i7-49xx are overkill unless your planning on sli/crossfire and want the full 40 lanes pci-e.

For a single card i think the 4770k is plenty and the 4670k for about $100 less will likely be just as good. Also as your seeing the 1150 platform is cheaper all around (CPU/MB/RAM). The money you save on CPU/MB/RAM could arguably be allocated to a second card for sli/xfire or invested elsewhere or simply saved.

X79 is a dead chipset, not socket. LGA 1150 is nowhere near dead, as Broadwell is using it. Haswell-E most likely won't be compatible with X79 boards, since there is a high probability that it will also feature on-die vrm's, requiring a change in the pinout of the socket, the same way that Haswell did.

Even IF it's compatible, you are still stuck with an old chipset. The only way Haswell-E is an upgrade is if you go to the 8 core sku, which probably will cost in the realm of $1000, and end up being limited to DDR3 due to X79 not being fully compatible. If you are spending that much, why on Earth wouldn't you just get the latest and greatest X99 motherboard and DDR4?

Either way, your upgrade path's are limited by compatibility, cost, and practicality. All you need for gaming, really, is a 4670K at the MOST. Hell, I still have a 2500K and yet the only game in my library that I can't run pinned at 60FPS is Crysis 3, and have no doubts that I really wouldn't NEED to upgrade for a couple years, but given that I scored a 4770K for $114, I couldn't resist.

I totally clicked the wrong vote, but my choice is the 4770k you don't really need 6 cores or x79 for games.

there are many reasons why something would or wouldn't be better depending on the OP's situation, but in my case I went with the 4820k for several reasons.

* soldered IHS - no temp issues or need for delidding
* microcenter cpu price
* microcenter motherboard bundle - $50 off the board, which made it $209


I also plan on trading/selling my 690 to get multiple cards again in the future.

i would defenetly go with 6C CPU now... i would rather get a 6C dead chipset now than a 4C chipset that doesnt have any future since games and everything is using more cores.

That 6 core cpu is overkill. It's WAAAAAAAY more than you're going to use for the next few years at least. You'd just be throwing money away, so to speak. get a cheaper one now, and in a few years if you need an upgrade you saved $200 now towards an upgrade later
