ASRock Extreme6 X79 vs. Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3? Tags: Motherboards Intel i7 ASrock Gigabyte Last response: December 9, 2012 4:10 PM in Motherboards Share darksparten December 9, 2012 4:04:05 PM I basically have the option of either the mid-end X79+high end i7-3930k or the high end Z77 mobo plus the i7-3770k processor. Which do you reccomend? My focus is gaming, however i'm getting a big discount on both these items from Intel employee purchase program, so I might as well go for a high end one rather than the i5.

For multi core enabled apps like video rendering/editing, then the 6 core 3930K is very good albeit expensive. For gaming, the 3570K is equally good, but a lot less expensive. That allows you more budget for a very strong graphics card. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
