I knew guys that you already tired of these kind of topics but plz this rig will hold me at least 3 to 4 years and even 5 years !
Can you guys plz suggest the best for my next rig , because my build will be based on one of these cpus( Make sure you select components from newegg.ca ). I'm so confused , people say that the 3770k is just an overkill , others say 3570k is the best gaming cpu atm , others say that 8350 and 3570k are very similar is performance so just save some dollars and go amd build ! I saw benchmarks where the 8350 beat even the i7-3770k D: People also mention that the intels cpus run so hot at load with stock cooler.. Im not overclocking or anything evrything at stock. Need you help! I'm 70% gamer , 30% others stuff ( photoshop , video editing , streaming .. )
Will future games use more than 4 core , will next games be optimized for the 8 core cpus !
Warning: Plz fanboys stay away of this (:

If you aren't going to OC then why are you choosing the K series?

The difference between the i5 and i7 is hyperthreading. As of right now there are very few games that use hyperthreading HOWEVER they could start to use it in the future more. If you're looking for something to last you up to 5yrs then I'd suggest the i7. If you're someone like me that upgrades every other generation and only plays games then the i5 makes more sense.

If you're not overclocking and you want to use your cpu for many years, I suggest going for intel because of its better single thread performance over the FX. Overclocking the FX would have compensated for that, but you don't want to overclock. Since you're going to do some video editing and photoshop, I'd suggest the i7-3770k, since it has hyperthreading (the i5 doesn't), which helps in those apps, and which will also somewhat make your cpu more futureproof in regard to future games/apps that might fully use the 8 logical cores of the 3770k.

And if you don't want to OC, don't go for a K version, as the guy above me pointed out.

A very complex question. Finally, games are starting to use more and more CPU power and we are moving to at least 4 cores. Also, Intel's Haswell has many hooks in it to ease threaded programs. For me personally, I'm getting a Haswell 4770K next month. By mid 2014, multi threaded apps will be the norm.

This is good news for AMD, for their octal core processors will be used more fully in the future too.

I would assume your best bet now, for future proofing, would be a Haswell 4770K next month. If you can wait a few months, the AMD Piledriver will be out. But I understand it will only be yet another warming over of the present FX8350, not a new process.

As of now, the 3770K is not overkill. I have seen reviews now that show it is considerably faster than the 3570K in many games now. Back a year ago, that wasn't so. Keep that in mind, games and software in gerneral are racing to mult-threaded, multi-core high performance.

Even though you don't want to overclock, go with the K series processors. In a few years, you will need to overclock to keep up with things. The K series are only $15 or so more. Think of it as cheap insurance. Also, the Haswell's seem to be overclocking champs. Look for them to be able to run at five to six GHz on air cooling.

For productivity, the 3770k is the best CPU. The FX comes in second.
They are all pretty much matched in terms of gaming. The FX might get an edge in the future, if games start utilizing more cores.
The 3570k is the safe choice, an solid all-rounder.
The 3770k is very good for productivity.
The FX 8350 is, how I would put it, a mix of the two Intel's. However, it doesn't have that good performance in single core applications.
That's how I would put it. If you have a big budget, the 3770k would be my recommendation.

If you aren't looking to overclock, but want the advantage of hyperthreading for your other applications, I would suggest considering the Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo). It is basically an i7 but without integrated graphics. It costs about the same as an i5-3570k, at least in the US. Check it out and see if that might work for your needs.

For photoshop, video editing, streaming... the FX-8350 offers superior performance to to the i7 and of course to the i5.

For current games the FX-8350 is close to the i5/i7.

For future games all the triple-A game developers recommend the FX-8350 as the best cpu

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-future...

An additional advantage of using a FX8350 is that you can upgrade to AMD steamroller, because the future AMD chip is backward compatible with AM3+ mobos.

However, if you buy an i5 or an i7 you cannot upgrade to Intel Haswell unless you buy a new mobo and maybe a new PSU!

Moreover Steamroller will introduce a higher performance over Piledriver (FX-8350) than Haswell over Ivy Bridge (3770k, 3570k).
