  1. i am a hardcore gamer based on that fact what is the best cpu for me
  2. Get the i5, the i7 will be a waste for your needs.
  3. do you plan to overclock if so i5-3570k is best for you
  4. i am not an overclocker :P

    but do u think my GPU is good for running 1080p games cuz i got only with the above system 38 to 46 in BF3 Multiplayer 1080p gaming so i am confused what to change the GPU or CPU however when i switched the resolution from 1080p to 720p i found it very shiny in 100 fps and 80fps

    i would upgrade my cpu first for sure if i was you i would get this cpu if no overclocking http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116506 ;)
  6. You GPU might be alright, and you,ve already got it?

    You could get the parts and see how well it performs.
  7. hmm , ok u think guys i dont need anything related to GPU upgrade, its all a matter of CPU right?
  8. is this I5 3570 better than I5 2500k?
  9. Best answer
    by a little yes 5-10% performance increase, probably the same with heat increase but the 2500K is a overclocker's chip.
