SORRY! TITLE IS WRONG! I MEANT TO SAY I7 3770K. MY APOLOGIES!


Hello!

I've recently been wanting to buy a CPU for my gaming PC. I want to know which is better for gaming. I want to use it for Battlefield 3 and 4, GTA 5 (When it releases on PC) and other games such as Cyrsis 2 and 3.

I also have a GTX 670 and will probably overclock as well.

The thing is, I want to know which is better for gaming. The i5 3570k will be made sure to be the best CPU chip (The site I am buying from will make sure it's the best chip they have by making sure it reaches it's potential at the best settings and safely). Cooling will also not be a problem as I have a solid cooler.

Please tell me which to get. I am not so fussy with multi tasking and editing etc... I won't record gameplay either.

Thanks in advance my tech friends!

The 3570K should be all you need.

Edit: I have Crysis 2 if you would like to know how the 3570K and GTX 670 perform in this game. (Got the game from the recent humble bundle. It's pretty cool.) I can do a quick test with everything at stock and then OC'ed (CPU@4.7GHz, GPU Clock @1225MHz, GPU Mem @ ~3500MHz, RAM 2133MHz 10-10-11-30 1T)

The Hyperthreading thing is only really useful for rendering/editing/encoding etc. Your gaming performance will be great with a 3570K.

That would really be great! I would love it if you can do that for me. If you can record Cyrsis 2 on 1080p ultra without V-Sync and motion blur, that would be great! Keep the 670 at stock and the i5 3570k at 4.6ghz please! I would appreciate it a lot. Upload it to youtube and send me the video! Thanks in advance mate!

Yep, when I get home. Hopefully I can upload in 5 - 6 hrs. (This is when I get home.)

Edit: My monitor isn't that great, so there could be a lot of screen tearing.

With some software encoding applications Hyper threading actually hurts encoding performance instead of helping it, and has to be disabled, so I 2nd your gaming recommendations.

Thanks a lot. No problem on your monitor, I don't mind.

Interesting. Well I guess things get pretty complicated these days. Either way, you can still record gameplay with a 3570K and GTX 670 and still retain a decent frame rate.

@ TheBeasetNose, I struggled to record the game fullscreen and keep the FPS counter visible. I ended up tweaking my settings in the Nvidia control panel and running the game windowed. (Every time I tried fullscreen the FPS counter would be left out.) So about 30 -ish pixels are missing from the bottom of the screen. Vid is still uploading. (We blew our data cap at home so I'm now using the slow work connection. :(  )

http://youtu.be/2Jv0401v8PQ This should be it (when it is done).

I haven't calculated anything, but I reckon the average FPS is around 60 - 65 in normal areas and 45 - 55 in intense graphical situations. (Extra effects/particles/characters and units etc...) Indoors it goes all the way up to 80 in some parts.All this while recording.

Also, the screen tear is not captured. Must be because it is grabbing whole frames as apposed to grabbing what the monitor is displaying, although I can tell you it wasn't pretty from my view. :lol: 

Rcording settings:
1080p @ 6500kbps Video MPEG-4
No down-scaling
30FPS capture
Constant bit-rate
96kbps AAC Audio

Edit: Upload is complete. The video has some random things, I wasn't quite sure what to look at and ended up getting carried away.
