i dont play games. i only nba 2k14.
i have no idea about overclocking? if this can optimize my pc for faster rendering. a big yes.

ive read that intel i7 and i5 has integrated graphics card? how this igc help the main gpu?

i7 with integrated graphics + 1gb ddr5 vs. fx 8350 + 3gb ddr5

or i would consider a quadro 4000 that a latest ddr5 cards?

thankyou man.

Hey idk if this post is dead at all yet, but with the introduction of haswell-E it is possible to make an i7 6 core computer at 1k, you jsut have to be willing to give up high end graphics, which by what youve stated before, is not the biggest issue.
