Basically, the recently released CPU are out in the market.
I was planning on building a new rig, reading and watching reviews to figure out what build do I want.

I was almost at the verge of buying my parts until I saw this on the internet the day before I was going to buy the components.

I was planning on an a core i5 3570K + Asus Maximus V Formula,

Cooling: Corsair H100i Hydro Series
RAM: G.SKill Ripjaws X 8GB
PSU: Seasonic X760
GPU: Sapphire HD7950 Dual-X Boost

but I'm having 2nd thoughts now that I saw the i5 4670K out in the shelf.
should I stick to Ivy Bridge or do I go with the latest CPU?

Its just there.. waiting in the shelf.. :( 
any answer will be greatly appreciated..


Thanks in advance.. :)  :)  :)

Do not waste a ton of money on that motherboard no matter which way you go.

Use that money to upgrade the GPU.

some of the latest GPUs are not yet available here in the Philippines, and probably would cost more than the ones available already in the market.. :(  :(  :(

what would be the advantage of this GPU which has a 256-bit interface compared to a HD7950 with a much higher memory and a better interface with 384-bit, plus it cost less than the 680. I thank you guys for helping and giving some suggestions, opinions and possible options.. :)  :)  :)

1) Which CPU, not enough performance diff to make a difference -can flip a coin
.. HOWEVER the Z78 MB does have advantages over the Z77 MB that may justify the cost differences. - Depends on needs and FUTURE needs.

For GPU - Check here for differences for the Games/resolutions (Factor in if planning a newer monitor with Higher res) you use. Just change the top to match which Cards you want to compare (currently set to 7950 vs 680)

thanks for the link.. i've checked on the charts, most of the high-end nvidia GPUs are a top notch.. especially on the titan, 780 and 770, they're the giants as of the moment and can really compete with 7970 GHz Edition.. Now I'm gonna have to check on my GPU as well, better find a less expensive GPU as well..

The 382 bit bus dosnt seem to help the 7970 vs the 680 the 680 either matches in some games or gets higher fps in others, plus it suppourts physx

i guess there are some factors that GPUs works with certains games, depending on the detail you want them to play..

but i guess GTX680 is the most cheapest one we have here in the Philippines that have a better performance, plus adding a SLI will make it perfect. :)  :)  :)
