4670k vs 3570k

Would it be worth it to spend the extra $50-60 for the extra performance? (taking note I'm only a gamer). Also, I'm guessing my Asus Maximus V Gene won't be compatible, and it's the only good motherboard that I've found that will fit in my 350D.

Worth the trouble? Is it possible for Micro ATX? Thank you!

Not worth the trouble. You will see no performance in games, unless of course, you mean you use the integrated graphics.

Best solution

Wel if you overclock. The 3570K is a much better option.. If the extra USB3 and Sata 6Gbps is important to you, get the 4670K.

If neither of those are important. Get whichever is cheaper and easier for you. In this case it seems to be 3570K.

wait for the maximus vi gene, if u already have 3570k don't switch, if u don't it's worth getting the new 1150 socket for future upgrades

I don't have either my Motherboard or CPU yet, ordering on the 15th. I don't have too much more money to put towards the new Haswell and a new compatible motherboard, so we'll see. I'll prob stick with my 3570k and Maximus V Gene unless it won't cost too much more to upgrade to new chipset

My opinion right now and unless I am proven wrong somehow is that if you have a quad core K-series CPU from Sandy/Ivy bridge don't bother upgrading. The cost just isn't worth the gains as they are already solid processors which you can overclock to make even better and more "future-proof". If you have an i3 like I had, go for the best one you can afford but look at total cost which is CPU and MB to determine if its worth it. A CPU at $200 and a MB at $150 is $350 so is the smallish gain worth that much? I already had a 1155 MB and went from i3-2120 to i7-3770k so for $250 total it was a solid upgrade for me. At $230 for the i5-4670k and another $150 for Z87 MB it would be $380 to have a NEW i5 instead of a new i7. Head to head whats better? I think the i7-3770k will beat the i5-4670k anyday. I think the 3570k is a good deal too if you can save a lot. You can't really worry about the future as Haswell just came out. When the new generation comes out will there be as much of a difference between the 3570k and 4670k? Or will it look more like the 2500k vs the 3570k which we all seem to agree are too close to swap one for another? I bet if we look back a year from now anyone with a i5-2500k will still have them and anyone with a 3570k will likewise have those too and no one with any sense more than money will think differently.

Thank's for that! I too believe the amount it would cost to upgrade isn't really worth the performance gains.
