I am currently looking at upgrading CPU's / boards. Now I was all for the popular 2500K i5 combo on tigerdirect, when I found a 3570k i5 for 5$ more. Is there any question on the 3570K is better? I understand the sale ends today, but with similar boards the processor seems superior? Is there something I am missing? Is max turbo make a huge difference?
When I look at the boards seperate the MSI retails $149.99 ($15) rebate & ASUS $139.99 ($10) rebate.
So your getting a better board and a better processor for $5? if this is true it might be a good buy for anyone.
Appreciate any feedback as I would need to purchase asap.

Go for it !!
The only issue with IB is that they can't OC as insanely high as SB, but they make up for that with a slight 5% better IPC:) Plus the 3570k has a much lower power consumption too. If i were u, i'd gladly spend that $5
Shawn, your a good man. Don't let anyone ever tell you different!
