I'm trying to decide on a build for a PC. Is it worth the extra £30 to get an i5-4670k over an i5-4570, the extra £20 for a z87 motherboard over a B85 and the extra £30 for the necessary fan? All I would do is gaming and work in office.
Honestly, if you're going to go intel, the 3570k is a better option than the 4670k, especially if you intend to overclock. The 4670k doesn't overclock nearly as well as the 3570k typically does. The performance difference between the 2 is also negligible for gamers.
A good option for you to consider, depending on what productivity tasks you do, would be something like the FX 8320/8350...or even something like the FX 6350, if you wanted to save some money.
