For gaming specifically, go with the i5. The AMD has an advantage if you are using it for hosting services and other highly threaded applications, but the i5-3570 is the better day to day performer for gaming purposes. I have an 8150 in my rig and it gets the job done so either one would be an excellent selection.

AMD seems better since it gets you a HD7970, but FX8150 is quite bad of a CPU. Better swap for a FX8350/8320 instead.

Not bad. Keep in mind 970A-G46 isn't a good board for OC-ing after all, so it's not very wise investing into a too expensive cooler.

Even the 8350 is sub par to 3570k capabilities. Amd has been behind the times for a few generations now. Many moons ago amd was top dog and I was a huge fan. For gaming and OC potential, 3570 is a better bet

Dude why do want to buy AMD 8350 when Buzz and others & me have already stated it is of no use compared to a 3570k

you can clock it 4.8 also still a 3570k with 3.8ghz will beat it in games perfromance if you are buying for video rendering then go ahead and buy AMD processor they will be ok but for games intel is the way to go now may be once AMD comes with 5.0 ghz processor which they are soon you can think of that. But for now Intel is the king...

On Mobo i have used As rock extreme 6 it is good feature rich mobo u can buy extreme 4

This a good build only thing is if you get a good deal on 7970 and price is 2-3k higher than 7950 than u should go for 7970 else 7950 is awesome card. and u can buy cpu cooler later to overclock.

Nope. This board's power design gets quite hot even when stressing the fx8350 at stock clock.

If you only need 4.2ghz then consider drop motherboard to Z77A-G43 ( still sufficient to OC to over 4.2ghz with the cooler you picked ) and change the PSU back to 650w version. VS550 won't handle a HD7970 well.

This cooler is temporary but can it handle 4.8Ghz and motherboard is okay to take around 1.40v or 1.65v for 5ghz.

Depends on the 3570k you got, since some of them are better for OC-ing than others, some are worse.

Z77A-G43 has max voltage at 1.4V, just enough to push an i7 3770k to 4.5ghz. If you want more then consider paying more to get the G45. Just don't drop the PSU.

So, when is the 1.75v fireworks show, and is it public access or invite only? Lol

As said, not all 3570k are equal, so it'll depend on your luck. The cooler you picked should be enough to handle 4.8ghz if your CPU is a good one that doesn't need high vcore.

Keep in mind that 4.0ghz 3570k has better single-thread performance than 4.8ghz FX 8350.

And turn of caps lock, it's like yelling at us.
