[Future Proof] Air Overclocking to 4.4ghz on 3570k or 4670k?

Last response: in Motherboards

Based on feedback from overclockers on the forums I was able to create an $1100 gaming/video/office build (until i added SSD). I was about to buy and my friend pointed out I might want to jump on the haswell platform for only $40-50 more based on my identical build.

Would being the the haswell platform (with the motherboard in the build) for $50 be a good idea since I can later on put intel's next CPU in it?

Ivy Bridge


Is this a good mobo for future CPUs & video cards?
Is the 620w power supply sufficient for the 4670k haswell?

Either build is good the difference between ivy bridge and Haswell is minimal. The PSU is more than enough, Im not a big CoolerMaster fan but that is one of their decent units. Personally for those builds I would go with a Seasonic, XFX or Corsair(non CX).
