I'm in the process of assembling a gaming PC and preferred the Asrock-Z77 Extreme 6 motherboard.
After carefully shortlisting on the the best Intel processors, I zoomed in on Core i5-3450/Core i5-3570K and Core i5-3470 - All these are quad core processors.
Can you please suggest which will be the best in these???
The only difference among these is that the K edition chips can be overclocked easily, but they are a bit costlier.
If u don't know what OC'ing is, or u don't plan on OC'ing, get either the i5-3570,3550 or 3470, which ever best fits ur wallet, coz they are all very close to each other in performance They are all same chips with a tiny 0.1GHz speed difference between them
All of the above processor are more than fast enough to handle all current and possibly future released games.
