Hello. I'm trying to build my first gaming pc and am having a very hard time deciding which build to go with. Whatever I buy, that's going ot be it for a long time.

I can't decide what is really the better value. The cheaper the better, but I don't want to compromise quality. I really need some educated help please!

I'm going with the 4670k. I was trying to decide between the FX 8350 and the 4670k and 4570. Most sources say the 4670k will outperform the 8350 in games. So I'm assuming it will definitely outperform the 8320. The 4570 and 4670k are very close, but from what I read, you cannot OC the 4570. Not sure if thats an issue for you but thats why I went with the 4670k.

I really like this website for comparisons.

I'm not a huge pc guy so I'm not sure if OC'ing is even necessary for me. I just want to play games, have them run smooth, and look as good as they can without breaking the bank.

If you don't want to OC then get the 4670 (non K variant). It will last you for a couple years at least.

My local Microcenter doesn't carry the 4670, and the (K) is less @Microcenter than a non (K) bought elsewhere.

Would you say the 4570 is better than an OC'd FX8320 then?

Then just go with the 4670k. If it's cheaper than a non k. It will out perform the 4570 so there really is no reason to get that one. Both of them will beat an 8320 unless you OC the 8320 to above 5 Ghz.

Ok so I'm definitely going with the 4670k then. Is there a board I can get for around $130 that will pair well with the 4670k? I was thinking Asus Z87-A?

Any of the ASUS boards are a great choice, just pick one in your budget with the features you want.
