  1. 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.
  2. I'd go with the i5 build but wouldn't want that mobo. I'd use an ASRock z97 Extreme 4 instead.

    See - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/mainstream-gaming-z97-motherboard,3824.html
  3. 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?
  4. 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!
  5. 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.

    umm as i mentioned before i already have all the parts mentioned except cpu .cooler.and mobo

    and all i have is 340$
    so i cannot substitute the ram or psu for better mobo
  7. 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

    ty for the help
  9. yeah i will have like 900 $ so i can get a better mobo and the i7 and a water cooler if i wait till then
    but as of right now i only got 340$
  10. Best answer
    Sounds good - go for it!
  11. still a little undecided
    i should wait tho
    just my laptop is so horrible and annoying as hell only can watch movies that lag every now and then that's about it lol
    welt in any case got the basic idea of what i should get
    so thanks for all the help much appreciated
  12. Just keep thinking - not long till I can throw this f***er off a cliff!
