Hello everyone ^ _ ^;
i will build a new PC with a motherboard Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 ...
I will have it for (hard) gaming and PHOTOSHOP ...
I'm between I7 2500K, 2600K (with hyper-threading) and I5 3570K (which supports pci-e 3) but i 'll most propably take a pci-e 2 graphics card because it is cheaper and almost the same) What do you reccommend??

More about : processor

Least expensive option.

edit;
and spend a bit more on the graphics card.
May 2, 2012 12:46:53 PM

do you think that i should take a pci 3 graphics card

Maybe.
But do you want to spend that much money on the graphics card and get the i5-3570K too?

spend more on GPU an less on CPU if you need to keep to a budget.

i just found that 3570 costs 229$ on amazon...it is cheaper than 2600

Does that open the door to PCI-e 3.0 for your budget?

Spend less on the CPU cooler and more on the graphics card.

What models of graphics card are you looking at? What have you selected for a power supply?

2600k would be perfect, ivybridge hasnt proven itself for the long haul and its temps with overclocking are worrysome. photoshop will take advantage of hyperthreading. i suggest you grab that 2600k for 250 and overclock the pants off it. sandybridge has proven itself to be a fantastic cpu

Be sure to buy a branded power supply. For hard gaming I would go with at least a GTX 560Ti or GTX 480, the GTX 560 will be slow unless you are playing at 1280x720.

what, the GTX 560 would be slow?? i dont see much difference with the Ti
except the price....Ok,so I buy the 2600k and a coolermaster hyper cooler??
AND would an nvidia be good to connect it into a led TV??

amd and nvidia both make excellent cards

AMD 7xxx, does better in general purpose graphics which would be good for the photoshop.
if your looking at the GTX560 then the ti is just a factory OC of the base card that you could probably do yourself

im pretty sure the ti is actually a whole different beast. has the arcitecture of a gtx 570, whereas the 560 does not
