I'd go with the second build as the i5 will offer more performance than the 8350. However, I would not recommend overclocking on that motherboard so you should downgrade the CPU to a regular 4670 or upgrade the motherboard. Also, 750 watts is overkill.

well i only chose that motherboard because it supports what i need and was only planning on using it till next pay day for some gaming then ill get a higher end board
and as for oc
do i need to for this cpu
also is there any difference
between the k version and non k besides
being unlocked and a 20$ price difference

in any case the total of the i5-4670k cpu cooler and motherboard cost 339.97 which is 3 cents under my budget
and as of right now i get a free game with the k version only which is usually a plus in my opinion


or should i wait and use my crappy laptop like i am until next payday and get a higher end motherboard with the i7-4770-k?

My vote goes to the 4670k build, I would save some money getting 8GB of ram instead of 16, and dont think that you need 750W so with that money you can buy a nice G45 gaming or a better video card!

I'd wait till payday and get a good mobo. You don't want a build where you keep worrying about how solid it all is.

You said "or should i wait and use my crappy laptop like i am until next payday and get a higher end motherboard with the i7-4770-k" so I thought next payday you could get a better mobo.

yeah sounds like a good idea and ill get the i7 4770k instead of the i5 since i could use some hyper threading for my video encoding apps besides handbrake
