Intel core i7 3770k vs intel core i7 4770k

I was wondering if its worth it to go with a intel core i7 4770k even if i have to switch out y motherboard, or would it be better to just go with a i7 3770k and just stick with my current motherboard. I currently have a nvidia gtx 660 and an intel core i3 2120 processor. Im running games like arma that are very cpu dependent and id like to be getting 50-60fps on maxed graphics.

  1. Depends on your motherboard, if it is completely garbage, I would recommend going with 4770k(if you have money enough), if you have a decent mob go with 3770k
  2. If your motherboard will support an i7-3770k, go ahead and upgrade to that. While the new features baked into the 4770K are nice, it's not a huge upgrade from Ivy Bridge, so no need to go replacing your motherboard for such little return.

    he is gonna overclock the cpu so i think he already has z77 motherboard with him. That's a very good motherboard so just buy 3770K..

    How can you say his motherboard is good without knowing which one it is?
    Z77 doesn't mean it's better...

  6. It should be quite stupid to emigrate from LGA 1155 Ivy Bridge to LGA 1150 Haswell. Another story will be Ivy Bridge-E vs Haswell-E.
