I am building my first gaming PC and I am trying to use it to play all of the games I like to play, like Battlefield 3 and eventually Battlefield 4, along with arma 3 and minecraft, etc. The thing is, I want to play them on 1080 ultra. I heard the evga gtx 770 2gb gfx card is a card I would need to play Battlefield 4 on 1080 ultra with good fps. What is the lowest Intel CPU I could use without bottle necking the performance of the gfx card. I was thinking that I would need a 4th gen i7, but I am not sure if a 4th gen i5 could do good too. Thanks

the best cheapest option equal to i5 4670k/3570k is 8350 and u cud go with 7970 which has equal perfrmnce to 770 but a significantly cheaper price than the 770

The lowest and the cheapest Intel Core i5 processor that will handle GeForce GTX 770 well is Intel Core i5-3350P
The lowest and the cheapest AMD FX processor that will handle GeForce GTX 770 well is AMD FX-6300
Hope it helped, pick whichever solution is right for you.

bf4 firstly is a cpu extensive game so a 6300 and 3350p both will not be able to handle it so i suggested 8350

Okay, I think I am going to go on the Intel side anyways. The Intel processors posted are correct though, right? I might go a little high too depending on the money I have, but I just want to know what can handle it with out bottle necking.

Alright, iwill probably pick the 4670k so I can possibly upgrade the processor to a higher 4th gen intel processor in the future if needed.

Definitely the i7-4770K because the extra four threads provided by Hyper-Threading will get used especially during multiplayer.

If all you play is single player then the i5-4670K will be fine.

I heard that the hyper threading doesn't do much for gaming, if anything it may slow it down a little bit, but I doubt that.
