Of the two, I'd go with the 3570K rig due to the unlocked CPU, will provide more overall power and speed...the rigs look good, prob happy w/ either, but can't be the K

I'd agree, I don't personally own the 3570, but just a day ago built my own rig using amd fx 8350. Other than the bundled deal I found for the amd which made it my pick, all forums benchmarks and alike I had come to find the 3570k to just be a beast. Overclock it and your like unleashing a violent storm of processing prowlness. haha. Haswell is nice but not to much improvement, only added benefit from going haswell now is that its the new chipsize so the motherboard youd purchase now for the haswell will be compatable with the next 2 series of intel chip releases. vs the ivy bridge you would have to upgrad motherboard and cpu. But at same time the 3570k is a beast and coudnt see you having the need to upgrade that for a while and im sure chip size will yet again change. So just my 2 cents.

I'm going to be building my rig similar to abhorsen's. But i'm going for an Intel I5 4670K. This is unlocked and great for overclocking, but it is an extra £20
