Intel Core i5-4430 (Haswell) or Intel Core i5-3470 (Ivy Bridge)?

Using some benchmark websites, it shows that the 3470 is better than the 4430, but what are the pros and cons of using each of these processors?

    Well, the 3470 has a faster clock, that overshadows the architectural improvements of Haswell over Ivy Bridge. It really doesn't matter that much. If I put you down in front of two systems with the different processors, you would never be able to tell which is which. The 3470 is also a lower TDP processor, that's good, but Haswell should use less on average.

    What sort of boards are you looking at? What are the price differences? Lots can go into the decision if you are looking to buy one.

    That said, it's generally better to go with the newer architecture.
