  1. If you currently have a LGA 1155 MOBO then go ahead, the 3570k and the 4670k are very similar but if you are upgrading the whole system i would go with the new Haswell CPU's.
  2. No! Get an Intel 3.6 GHz LGA 2011 i7 4960X 4th Generation Processor
    I'm in love with it! :D
  3. lol at those extremists, that cpu is a beast go ahead buy it, it's on the same 22nm as haswell and cheaper and 98% like a haswell.
  4. I5 3570k is still a worthy CPU. Just go ahead an overclock it to get more out of it. JUmping to a haswell system you wont' see any tremedous perfomance jumps (10% at most), it not worth considering all you would have to replace.
  5. Yes it's still worth it. Like Stu 95 said, if you have a Z77 motherboard the 3570k is the way to go. I decided to go with the 3570k just to save a few bucks over the 4670k and a Z87 motherboard (also considering I was going to overclock). But if you are starting fresh, you should get the 4670k.
  6. An i5-3570K should be a viable CPU for gaming for years.
  7. I just bought a 3570k with a Z77 chipset and it is very worthy for use in current gen and past gen games. It was $179 at Microcenter which is a significant price savings over the Haswell while giving up only a nominal amount of performance.

    Overclocked to 4.2 without touching voltage and stays plenty cool. Keeps my Crossfired 270x's running 80-100% at all times in multi-player BF4. Happy with my purchase.

    4670K is also $179.99 at Microcenter. Just FYI.

    Oh, ok. Didn't realize that. Suffices to say: New project? Buy Haswell. Already own IB? Get 3570k.
  10. its that price $179.99 at Microcenter free shipping?

    Looks like it says "in-store only". Microcenter rarely does shipping.
  12. that is still a beast. hell even an i5 2500k is still also a beast. hahaha. i even would still recommend it than an 8350 if you are only a gamer and wont use photoshop,editing or rendering.
