Since the Sapphire is on sale so it would be the same price.

Thanks!

get the 770 combo...770 is about 10 percent faster than 7970. The 4670k is more than enough cpu and no worries of bottleneck. Plus the 770 sli will scale better than the the 7970 in crossfire.

Thanks! For how long can I be stuck with an i5-4670k before I need to upgrade the CPU?

3-4 years..Personaly I'd go with 3570K as it is "safer", easier and more "boostable" to overclocked and I'd go to an upgrade after 4 years as 3570K I believe keep you up in gaming for quite some time. 4670k runs hotter and not much oc potential.

Even if I have the money for a 4th generation i5?

Pros for me are that the motherboards are very good and that the Socket is still ''in use''

either really...I just like the 3rd gen due to oc potential over 4th gen...the mb for 3rd are going relatively cheap so you could prob get a better deal on one...really only thing to consider in mb is pci 3.0 which both have on board. Maybe intel will release a better chip next year and 1150 socket will serve you better but doesn't look like it since they are geared toward power savings for ultra crab books...ha

Sorry ,lol, I had my Pentium D for about 8 years now and just now I feel the need to upgrade,(just build a new pc) so the Haswell cpu should last you for a good 10 years if you use it for gaming, you probably shouldn't have the need to upgrade cpu for a long time, but like I'm saying, depends what is your current cpu, if you are like me coming from an older system then it is worth it, even if you are too picky with stuff like me, you can upgrade it in 3-4 years but I think this should last longer and current games technology will last for much longer if you know what I mean.

I hope somehow this helps you, I am looking at building a similar PC as you are.

I am looking at getting a 770 after considering a 760, or even 2x760, the 770 is more power efficient and there is a good difference in performance.

I considered a radeon but since I always had nVidia cards I am sticking with them.
