Hey, I'm building a PC and it seems like Intel's i5-4760k is the only reasonable choice (I'll be overclocking), It's a bit pricey though. Is there any cheaper (but still good) alternative?
Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming
CPU Cooling: Raijintek Themis
PSU: Corsair RM650 Golda Rated
Graphics Card: MSI GTX 760 Gaming OC
Case: Corsair Carbide 300R Windowed
Paste: Arctic Cooling MX-2
RAM: Team Group Vulcan Gold 1600Mhz 8GB
HDD: Seagate 1TB 7200 Rpm
The cheapest way is to buy the i5. You'll be amazed by how many extra money you'll have to spend in order to get an AMD CPU close to the i5's performance. Also, you will save money by buying a cheaper motherboard for the i5 instead of buying an expensive one for the AMD in order to overclock it, because you need a proper motherboard if you want to overclock without setting your PC on fire. And don't forget the money spent on a PSU you would need for overclocking. Edit: the spending extra list can continue...I'll add the CPU cooler on it too.
The only way to overclock the 4570 is via fsb and it is not worth that hassle. You're looking at less than 200mhz extra at best and that is with an after market cooler. Like I said, forget about overclocking. It's not worth it.
