Uhmm, Im gonna build a gaming pc. (mostly just for browsing, gaming,watching, and entertainment) Im having a hard time choosing which CPU I will get. Here are my specs:

CPU: I7 4770k vs I5 5670k
MB: Asus Maximus Hero
Gpu: MSI Lightning n770
RAM: 16 gb Corsair Vengeance

What is the best cpu you can suggest for me?

  1. The I5 is all you need for gaming. 8gb of ram will also be plenty.

    Asking how long a cpu will last is problematic at best. 3-5 years for any system component (in terms of will it run XXX or YYY) is sheer guesswork. Physically, if you do not abuse the cpu (massive o/c) and keep it properly cooled, it should easily "last" 5 years. Chances are it will still play most games, but at differing levels, etc depending on what is required of a cpu/gpu in 3-5 years.

    The 4670k will be fine for a little editing/recording as long as you are not expecting to be a video production machine.
