i5 3570k vs i7 3770k vs i7 4770k ?

As the title says, i5 3570k vs i7 3770k vs i7 4770k?
I'm planning on making a GAMING desktop & while gaming I always wanted to record, so I'm sure I'll be doing that also.

Which one of those three CPU's would be better for GAMING & also a-bit of video editing/recording but not heavy?

  1. i7-4770k, if you can afford it, I7 is more "futureproof" anyways.
  2. The i7's would be best due to hyper-threading for video editing. Go with the the Haswell cpu for being newer it will get better support.
  3. Definitely go for the 4770k as people have said, the hyperthreading will come in handy for the recording and editing and it's the best future proofing you can possibly get. Also better due to more native USB 3 and SATA 3 support on the new intel 8 series chipset.
  4. I have the i7 4770k in my current rig, and it performs like an absolute BEAST! If you can afford it, it is definantly worth the money imo. Im using it for gaming and vid editting. In cunjunction with my GTX 770, im getting 160 - 200 fps on BF3 on Ultra settings, and upwards of 80 FPS in DayZ. :)

    edit: those are the frame rates while using FRAPS, so they are taking a hit there also!

    Interesting..what resolution are you playing those games at 800x600?
  6. 1920x1080 mate.

    There is no way your getting 160-200fps in BF3 on a single GTX 770 Ultra
  8. Thats the reading FRAPS is giving me, and the render.drawfps command in bf3 gives the same.
  9. Are you sure you aren't running low quality settings in BF3?

    Toms benchmarks... Not even the Titan can reach 160fps and it takes a 690 (2 x 680 aka 2 x 770) to reach 150 fps average.

  10. Such bull. Your frames are not that high. That's what my SLI Titans hit.

    Agreed. I can hit 200fps with my setup if I'm looking at certain spots in Kharg but no way constant 200fps
