    if you are just gaming, get a 3570k or a 4670k. otherwise, get a haswell, as you may as well get the newest model now the prices for motherboards have lowered a bit. broadwell will not give a massive performance increase, so there is no clear reason to wait for another 6 months until it is released

    Ivy Bridge and Haswell are really similar in terms of performance; Haswell enjoys maybe a 5% performance increase over Ivy Bridge at the same clock speeds.

    Haswell, however, has a reputation for being finicky when it comes to overclocking. When buying a Haswell chip you run a greater risk of getting a chip that overclocks poorly compared to buying an Ivy Bridge chip.

    Broadwell isn't releasing anytime soon. The earliest is 2015 or maybe late 2014. Intel pushed Broadwell back and now has a Haswell refresh slotted for 2014 instead.
  3. I am going to assume you are planning on gaming. If there is a big price difference, get the cheaper one and spend the saved money on a better graphics card.
