i7 4820k or i5 4670k
I am building a PC for the first time, and after asking about AMD vs. Intel, I also got feedback to use the i5 4670k instead of i7 4820k. I want some more opinions, is the 0.3 GHz worth the extra $80?
HeyyScott said:If your rig is for gaming i5-4670k. 4820k is for intensive tasks such as editing/rendering. You will not gain anything for gaming. Plus, 2011 socket parts are expensive and not needed for gaming.
Thanks for the advice, would it be worth it to buy a different i7 such as the 3820?

If your streaming & gaming on the same rig I'd still spend the extra 50 bucks and go with a 4770k. My specs are :
Intel Core i7-4820K
Gigabyte R9 280X
16gig G.Skill Ripjaws 2133mhz
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD
I play BF4 on High, and stream to twitch live with 2 monitors. I do not have a game capture card yet but FPS as follows
80-120fps streaming HD720 @ 45fps. Load on CPU is 65%. Everyone will tell you that 4770k is the gaming i7. I honestly would of went with that cpu but i wanted 2011 for upgrade purpose of video editing/rending
Hope my experience helps you
