  3. Yeah Irrelative, if you take any advice here please go with ksham's suggestion of the i5-4670k. While your name is Irrelative, the price/performance (in a gaming context) of the two cpus are equally irrelative ;). Despite what you might have heard.

    I'd just hate to see you spend that extra ~$120 for practically unnoticeable gains.
