Note: price isn't that much of an issue.

I'm going to use it for games like MicroVolts, LoL etc, homework, facebook, youtube (the ussual internet browsing basically)

More about : 8350 intel 2500k

For about the same price, get the Intel Core i5-3570K. I have no idea what game MicroVolts is.

Take a look at the requirements.

Thing is that I can get the 8350 for $170 altough if it's really THAT much of a difference I guess I could buy the 3570k.

3570k is faster for gaming. I believe it wins ~9/10 times against the 8350.

For Microvolts specifically, the difference is very small.

The 3570K is worth an extra 20-30$. Any more, and, if budget is a big deal, the difference isnt that big.

Either way, 2500K is the eay to go. MicroVolts doesmt use more than 2 cores.

Buy the cheaper CPU. Both will do what you need. And maybe even overkill.

If I start to play COD MW3 and BO2 will it still be enough?

Most games are GPU-intensive, not CPU-intensive. Just get the cheaper one and upgrade your GPU.
