Which of the two would be the best option:
1 - Asus Maximus V Extreme (price down $ 340) + Core i5 3570K or
2 - Msi GD65 Z87 Gaming + core i5 4670k.
the first option being $ 100 more expensive.
  And a video card to play Crysis 3, Bf3 at ultra settings on a monitor 24 "1080p

6% performance increase for $100? Not for me.

IMO, the 3570k with an Asus P8Z77-V LK or an ASRock extreme 6 makes a lot more sense. Use the extra $300 to get a good psu and gpu.

There a lot of mb and combo deals on neweggwith the 4670k. From a tech side the 1155 is a dead slot. Not bad if your going to keep the pc for a few years then build a new pc with the newest CPU then. If your a person that stays on cutting edge of computer parts the 1150 mb you be able with a bios update drop in the next CPU from. Intel.

it's impossible for me to recommend Haswell to anyone if planning on high overclocking.
if small clock of up to 4.3GHz then Haswell is good.
anything more and you will have to delid, period and still deal with high temps.

I bought the Corsair H100i with it can go up to 4.6 ghz? And I'm about to buy a gtx 770 (Gigabyte). One question, do I really need all this? (Remembering that want to play bf3, crysis, MWF3, everything on ultra at 1080p) With a gtx 670 I would not have the same result? o.O

at 1080p the GTX 670 is nice and you can overclock SOME with the stock BIOS and only take like 3 minutes to flash it an unlocked BIOS for more overclocking room. remember an overclocked 670 is basically a 680 which is right behind the 770.
so that to me is not the immediate upgrade.
I had 670's and now I have 770's in my other rig.

reports are that the H100 and a delid Haswell still run in the upper 80's to lower 90's C
that is within the operating temps but I personally feel that is way to high for me.
the performance increase from Ivy to Haswell doesn't warrant the platform upgrade, cooling upgrade as well.

I will say that if your buying new and already do not own an Ivy set-up then going with Haswell is logical.
but I rather have a 3770K that might or might not need delidding then a hot Haswell period.

Intel's arch has ran it's course, all this is still based of Core2 tech from years ago.
I doubt anymore performance will come of it and Broadwell is now in limbo.

my opinions of course.

I currently have a core i5 3570K on a Asus P8z77v pro-gtx 560 ti, the motherboard overclocks automatic when you enter the game to 4.2GHz (stock cooler), anyway I will buy a new set but I am concerned about the temperature, even thought about just buying a new motherboard (and continue using the old i5 3570K) and a gtx 770

I'm currently using that exact set-up, 3570K and GTX 770 @ 1080p as my GTX 780 is in my other rig until my second 770 for SLI comes; there isn't anything that configuration can't do.

with your current Z77 V Pro the move to the MVE is not needed, keep the Pro.
grab the CPU cooler upgrade and the GTX 770 then let's game.
