Hello Gentlemen,

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?


I5 2500k
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...
$349.98 with the bundled board. (Scroll down to frequently bought together)


I5 3570k
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...
$354.99

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.

Cheers,

-Jay

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 :D

Shawn, your a good man. Don't let anyone ever tell you different!

Does the 3570k also come with max turbo?

if its the matter of 5$, i'd make the jump. though regardless, at this point in time, the performance values between the two are virtually zero.
