i5 3570k or 17 3770k?

help!!

I want my pc to be future proof and fast, but i don't really have the budget for the i7, is it worth going the extra £75 for the i7, i will be gaming and doing all sorts of different things such as video editing and multitasking?

More about 3570k 3770k
  1. A 3570k will be enough, hyperthreading is over-rated in the 3770.
  2. normaly for gaming there is no difference between the 2 chips, however if you could find the i7 @ the i5 price (i buyed an i7 2600k @ the price of i5 2500k) then go with the i7
  3. Depends on what your needs are going to be.

    If you will will be doing a lot of video editing, then I would go with the i7. But if it is mainly used for gaming the i5 would be best.
  4. Lemme tell you this Core i5-3570K with all OverClocking component and an SSD ofc will be more than enough, you can overclocking CPU to 4.5 Vcore 1.4V then you can save some money.
    For Core i7-3770K OCing will be more powerful but you don't gonna need that for next 3 years ^^
    Best luck
  5. If you won,t upgrade for more than 2 years it is worth the money. The future is multi core computing and when you get past 4 core usage the I5s will have their performance plateau while the I7 and other 6 and 8 core cpus will still be able to improve their performance.

    Tell that to the people who were told that the I3 would be a good gaming cpu last year.As games are using more cores older quad cores have come up and the I3 went down. Do you see a trend. Gaming is changing don't keep your head in the sand
