Hey guys , Im looking forward to buy a new system and I've decided to buy a ivy bridge cpu. Yet I have not decided which one to buy ( 3770k or 3770 ) , I know that 3770k is for overclock but I don't know if I should give more money to it. Also I need help for choosing a good motherboard. I bought my current system 5-6 years ago that's why I don't have much knowledge about new motherboards and recent tech.

I've did some research and i saw that MSI Z77A-GD65 or G43 or G45 are ok , and adviced. Moreover I will buy ssd and graphic card later , that's one of the reason why I want to buy ivy bridge as it has HD4000 which can run lots of games ok. I want to buy a new system which can last 3-4 years easily, and get 100+ fps on ultra settings in recent games. Finally I'm sure that you can understand what can I afford with these examples so give logical and buyable advices please.

The specs that in my mind are ;

Intel i7 3770k
MSI Z77A G45
Kingston 8gb Ram
600W PSU ( any known brand )

Thanks

HD4000 is far slower than even an entry level 40 dollar graphics card, if anything lower the budget on your CPU (to say, a dual core intel) and get an actual graphics card.

If you are going to use it for gaming, get the 3570k... The only difference is the 3770k has hyper-threading, which you won't need.

I like MSI, but their boards in my price range didn't have enough usb 3.0 slots for me (only had 2). If that's sufficient for you (aka you don't do many data transfers, external hard drive w/ usb 3.0), then it's not a big deal and should go with it.

I would go with Corsair TX, I know there is one on sale right now. GREAT value for the price.

But you may be able to use your old PSU with your new system UNTIL you decide to get that upgraded graphics card.

RAMs good. Make sure its DDR3 1600.

Or just save for a GTX 670

Unfortunately in my country taxes are so high. I want to get 3770k because upgrading a cpu is harder than upgrading a gpu. Also i will collect some more money in 1 month so if i get 3570k i must wait 1 more month to play any game. Especially i want to play diablo 3 asap :p  .I forgot to write in my list that i want gtx570 ( its around 400 dollars ) , i will buy it in a month if i buy 3770k.

A 3570k would allow you to play sooner...

sorry i mixed it up with 2500k. There will be any significant performance difference on games between 3570k and 3700k?
