depends what you want to use it for

if its for gaming then probably the 2500k

if you need hyperthreading then 2600k

both also highly overclockable

It doesnt have a coil..lol

It DOES have a fan thats noisy when gaming though, the same as all big graphics cards...

All the best Brett :)

Hey from what i found out it is coil whine from a transistor on the card and was also confirmed as well but anyway yeah i been looking at the 2500k and 2600k roughly the prices I was expecting to pay so that's good ^^

Get rid of the 7970 and buy the super cool and quiet gtx670,
as for intel then i52550k or 3570k plus z77 mobo

All switching DC-DC converters of any significant power use either an inductor (buck regulator) or transformer (forward converter) but they are often encapsulated to make them compatible with pick-and-place automated assembly. Those typically look like small generic black boxes, often solid epoxy or plastic injection directly on top of the inductor/transformer.

Going with the Intel® Core™ i5-2500K or Intel Core i5-3570K and a good Z77 chipset based board would be your best option. They are both great performing processors for a gaming environment and offer outstanding value.
