I'll try and keep this as simple as I can. I want to upgrade to a new processor. I plan on playing Battlefield and other graphically intensive game such as Battlefield. (Crysis, Arma, Etc.) I want to be able to use this processor for about 2 or 3 years to come. I'm pretty limited on budget which is why the 3470 appealed to me as opposed to the 3570.

I also noticed that the 3570 and 3570K are the same price right now but I cannot buy the new processor right away. How much worse will the 3470 perform compared to the 3570? (If hardly any) Really the only main processing power I think I'd do is gaming, video editing, and photo editing. Thanks everyone!

There will be a difference, but not much. The only difference between the two is a 200MHz clock speed difference. There will be a noticeable difference, but only in some circumstances. Most of the time you won't notice.

I would get the "K" version of the 3570 though. If you get a decent cooler you can overclock the hell out of it, and it will dramatically outperform both the 3570 non k and 3470.

What kind of motherboard are you running if it doesn't support overclocking you won't be able to take advantage of the K versions unlocked multiplier. If your planning on upgrading your motherboard in the future to a Z77 model that will do OCing then it might be worth it.

Micro Center has some crazy deals on the i5-3570K it was going for $149.99 not sure if the sale is still on, however the regular price is $189.99 but it's in store pick-up only.

I am running an Asrock Z75 mobo but I'm not sure I will want to overclock. Hence why I was thinking between the 3470 and 3570. Also, I don't have a microcenter store anywhere near me so that will not work out well.

Just get the 3470, you can probably bump a few extra MHZ out of it and make it run at the same speed as a stock 3570 by bumping multi up a bit in the bios. Do update your bios before you swap processors (I assume you have it running now). I have a 3350p (slower than your reccomended processor) and it runs everything fine.
