is the 4670k useful for playing games such as metro last night, and crysis? or would i have to step up to the 4770k to play these types. of course i will be using a graphics card but i was just wondering if the i5 could handle it

More about : 4670k 4770k

Best solution

4670K can easily handle it. It is IMO the best gaming chip for the money

Haswell should be fine for awhile, next year nothing is really going to replace it because Broadwell is not mainstream consumer desktop I don't think.

The 4770k is the 4670 K w/ Hyperthreading and an extra 0.1 GHz

Something better will come out every few months. Keep in mind however that the 2700k overclocks better then the 3770k which overclocks better then the 4770k .... the result of which there not a whole lotta difference between what ya can do w/ each one.

The i5 will give you much more bang for buck than the i7, as the only difference between the two (as previously mentioned) is hyperthreading and a .1GHz clock speed difference. Neither of these are useful in gaming, and likely never will be. Hyper threading is exclusive to the i7, and it basically allows windows to see and extra 4 threads, making the i7 an effective 8 "core" CPU. However, very few programs can actually utilize these extra resources, and unless you are doing heavy video work and other multithreaded tasks, it is not worth the extra money. Also, I would recommend getting a Haswell i5 over any older CPU, such as an Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge CPU, mainly because they are only available for the 1155 socket, which is no longer supported. Going with Haswell provides an upgrade path, as it is brand new, and will support another CPU revision with the same socket. As for overclocking, it really isn't necessary. OC'ing is really only useful when your CPU begins to bottleneck your games, and the i5 4670k will not bottleneck for at least a couple years.

The Haswell refresh will be here in Q3 of 2014. Skylake with ddr4 and pcie 4.0 arrives in Q4 of 2015

I am so looking fwd to DDR4 systems and the post Haswell tech.

how will ddr4 work out? just wondering how did they get ddr5 on to GPU's but it's no way close to being on cpu's?
