3570K.

The passmark numbers are based on stock configurations.

The 3570K can easily be overclocked past the 3.4 stock to the 4.3 level.

The E3-1230 can turbo up a bit, but not to the overclocked levels of the 3570K.

If you are bulding this computer for gaming definitly get the I5 it is an all around better performer in games. Also the I5 can pretty easily be overclocked the E3 not so much.
