hello everybody
i am planning to buy a new system based on lga1156 setup
i have read the CPU buying guide but there are no references about the new i5-655k cpu

i use my computer for internet-music-video-gaming
i currently have an e8400 with P35 board which are doing very well

but i'm quite confused about the processors available currently at the market
as i said before i have decided to go with LGA1156(i think it is the best choice for intel's platform)

i don't know yet my budget
but i am between:
i5-760
i5-655k
and i7-870

which one do you think would be best for my needs?
i am seeking performance of course

More about : 655k 760

Go for the 760 the 655K is a dual core, and spending that kind or money on one now isnt really worth it. (hence not being recommended)

Besides, the unlocked Multi doesn't help OC much anyways, ~an 100Mhz boost at best.

hmm, i see
so, there aren't big differences between 760 and 655k.
how about 760 and i7-870
i can see that the price is about 50% more
but what about performance on everyday applications and gaming?

If performance is what your're after then the i5 760 and a P55 mobo is the way to go.

Yes that's a great board and oc's very well.l
You'll most likely have to flash the bios for a new cpu like the 760 to post though.
