  1. Drop to an i5-4570k, no need for an i7 for gaming. That system will play those games with ease.
  2. Are you sure? because upcoming new games like WATCH DOGS require faster CPUs infact for ULTRA settings they want 6 core i7 INTEL

    i7 is exactly the same as an i5 but with hyperthreading. By the time games utilise hyperthreading, we will be into DDR4 so you will have upgraded by then anyway. Just remember, most of the power for gaming comes from your gpu.
  4. Thank you my friend. So you think GPU: R9 280X is good choice with i5 4570K to play all the latest games at ULTRA settings.?

    We're going to be into DDR4 this year when Intel releases its Haswell-E 8 core CPU. So... I think that second sentence is wrong.
  8. I honestly feel you are spending too much in areas that are going to impact gaming performance. This would be far better.

  9. Logain's build is great. I would get a 4670k, not 4770k or 4570k, and a more powerful graphics card. The Xeon he suggested is equal to 3770, so it is a perfectly valid option, although it cannot be overclocked (which is fine, really). The 290x will be a good improvement, too.
