Hello, I do have a budget, I live in sweden and havent got much cash since I'm 17 and dont work, I go to school. I have a FX-4100 and a P II x4 965 BE in my other PC, I wanna upgrade to an I5, and people on another forum just keep telling me it aint worth to buy I5-3450 because when it start bottlenecking in about a half year I cant OC it. But will this CPU start to bottleneck in a half year? I5-3570K@Stock is not much better then a I5-3450... My question is: how long will the I5-3450 do me good, is it only a half year? I'm on my budget, Well there is a difference: the price of a I5-3450 and a cheap B75 mobo is pretty much cheaper than a I5-3570K and a Z77 mobo, especially as I'm upgrading two computers. So I hope the I5-3450 will do good because I'm on my budget, cant afford 3570K, also I cant afford two 3570K's and two Z77 mobos, so I hope I5-3450 and a B75 mobo will be good for more than a half year. Thanks!
Oh and, the GPU's I'm using is GTX 660 TI , and a GTX 660 in the other PC.

Dont tell me about the FX-8320 or 8350, I will go for intel, thanks.

My advice to you is this: the limitation does not fall on what others say, or what others suggest, or how future-proof a component is, or how good something is. The limitation comes from your budget. If you cannot afford the Intel Core i5-3570K, then end of story.

I don't know if you mean the Intel Core i5-3450S or the Intel Core i5-3470. The former is not much more expensive than the Intel Core i5-3570K, so I will assume you mean the Intel Core i5-3470. Intel Core i5-3470 will do you justice. It won't become obsolete in half a year. You can still use it well for at least a year and more. Unless you're the kind of person who buy the best of the best just because you want it, your choice will be fine. Even the Intel Core i5-3350P will be sufficient.

That is a bold statement. 2-4 years is a long time my friend. I guess it depends on what OP does for the next 2-4 years.

I mean the I5-3450@ 3,1 ghz and 3,5 ghz turbo, it's pretty similiar to the I5-3470, I5-3470 has 1 ghz more, its 3,2 ghz and 3,6 ghz turbo :p

It was only the question, if I5-3450 is enough, well, I will go with the I5-3450 and a cheap ATX mobo, MSI-B75A-G41 :p 

It costs about 75 dollars here in Sweden, and then the I5-3450 for about 30 dollars cheaper than the 3570k.

I3,i5,i7 of 1st gen are still working good my friend.
I'm 100 % sure i5 of 3rd gen will works in least 2 years nd maximum 4 years.
It will never bottleneck with present GPUs like gtx 600 series. But not sure with 75 chipset. Z77 chipset will work with it .
Thank you my friend.

You don't need Z77 if you're not overclocking. The MSI one is fine.

To me, it's a waste to not get a 3570k. It's only about 20$ more MAX, if that. Your best bet money wise is to get a 3350-P. They are QUAD core i5's but they only cost 180$. Sometimes you can get them for 159.99. Even if my motherboard didn't overclock I'd still get the 3570k for the higher clocks and ability to overclock.

I also don't see why oyu can't afford an overclocking MoBo. An Asrock Z77 Extreme 3 only costs 84.99. I've found them on pcpartpicker.com for only 84.99. So that's 300$ for CPU/MoBo combo. Not too bad for 35% extra performance. I bet your going to spend at least 70$ on a mobo anyways so why not get a z77 for 15$ more. Either way, with two PC's, your looking at only spending about 50-60$ more for them both to overclock. I don't see how you can pass that up. At least make one overclock and the other not overclock.
