I want to be set for a long time. Be able to play high intensity games without too much trouble. I'm thinking that an i5 and it's strictly quad core configuration will get smoked in now and upcoming multithreaded apps and games (bf4, ac4, crysis 3, etc). I already own the i5 4670k and i love it, but in terms of future uses, idk...I've posted before and people say that I don't need extra threads for games. Evidently that's not true because consoles are multicore, new PC games utilize many cores, and people seem to always purchase an i7 just for gaming....
If you have read anything I have posted before, its all i7 vs i5. I just built a rig for a friend sporting an i7 4770k. Tears apart everything we throw at it.
Suggestions are more than welcome!
