  1. Depends on the budget. I mean what is your overall budget and do you need OS and monitor? That would determine that which CPU is more suitable for the job.

    i dont need a os
    and i have a good FHD monitor(21.5 inch)
    i was thinking about a 4670K
    but im not sure
    since i heard planetside 2 is very heavy on the cpu
    i can get a i7 4770k if i must

    Planetside is equally heavy on the CPU as well as GPU, so yeah, it is quite a demanding game but the i5 should be able to run every game you throw at it without any problem at all. So, get the i5.

    Also you are going with the "K" versions of the CPU. Are you overclocking?

    Also what is your overall budget for this particular build?

    or Go for this build if you want to go dual GPU. The 7990 is really a beast for gaming and with new drivers all the issues that were earlier with AMD crossfire are solved. This is a beast when compared to single 780.
