  1. Hae you already got the CPU?Since the 9590 isn't very an i74770k is better
  2. Its either the 9590 or the 8350 I am not going Intel i my gaming rig
  3. Why not Asus? Why Gigabyte instead of Asus?
  4. amd chips have multi-threading enabled, where games don't make use of multi-threading, intel performs better at single threaded apps, so intel will perform better on games, and yes i agree with Akashdeep, why not go for asus? i have been using asus rigs on both amd and intel chips for more than 10 years, i keep using asus cuz they never dissapoint.

    the 4670k will be excellent for games you don't need more.
  5. I prefer Gigabyte boards to ASUS's
  6. gigabyte offers great value for money, you won't go wrong there, my friends use gigabyte my only problem with their boards is their bios tends to give a bit of lag when booting, other that that i havent found anything wrong with their mobos
