    are you interested in overclocking?
  3. No, why are you asking me, ask the OP.

    i'm not asking you, sorry
  5. Heavily-threaded software + overclocking = 2600k (I know it's not on your list but it's just a multiplier adjustment away from a 2700k for less money)

    Heavily-threaded software - overclocking = 3770

    Software with 4 threads or less + overclocking = 2500k

    Software with 4 threads or less - overclocking = 3570
  6. HIGH-END gaming with the gtx 560 ti?
  7. ^+1 I was thinking that too. You need at least a GTX660Ti or GTX670.

    Edit - if you already own the GTX560Ti SLI it - hurry you may have trouble finding one.

    I'm not looking to over-clock anything I'll mainly use basic stock setup.

    Softwares like - Photoshop, flash, maya, visual studio etc

    My budget for processor and GPU is the price of - (intel i7 3770 + gtx 560 ti)

    If you can suggest any other combo within that price range of the combo which I've mentioned above for HIGH-END gaming, it would be very helpful.

    Thank you :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
  11. Prices vary from websites and shops, what is your exact budget on those 2 components either seperate or together.
