I7 3770k vs i5 3570 and mobo

So im going to start on my build no budget. Is i7 really faster than i5 with hyperthreading? These are going to be ocd to 4.0ghz. I will be doing some gaming mostly older games and i will be doing some video publishing with sony vegas and wmoviemaker. If i choose i7 3770k my buget will be limited to 1$70 for mobo if the i5 then it will be to $200 for the mobo. Paired with a 7950.

More about 3770k 3570 mobo
  1. If you play old games any of the CPUs will do.But video editing is better with the i7.
    So i'd go for the i7.With 170$ you can get a very nice ASRock Z77 Extreme 4.
  2. I think he mean 70$ for the board if going with the i7, i agree the i7 will be better for your need, if it's 70$ you better get the i7-3770 (non k) with the 10$ more buy an h77 mobo like the ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP.
    If it's 170$ go with an i7-3770k and a GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H.

    I wana overclock hence the k and hence z77
  5. But what is your budget ?
    But there was already two z77 mobos recommended :

    ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
    GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H

    Both good and can overclock like any z77 board (though the extreme with more power phases can be better for oc)

    The gigabyte seems nice. Is it durbale? Does it support out of box ivy bridge? Which do you think will suit it better i7 or i5 ocd to 4.0 stock voltage
  7. Any z77 board out of the box supports any ivybridge cpu, both can get those speeds at good temperatures, it's more about your needs and not about the speed difference between the two, the i7 has hyperthreading, and that makes for video editing a much better cpu, virtually you have 8 cores on the i7 for those needs.

    I heard hyperthreading can make games run slower so you have to disable it
  9. No, it will run as the same as without.
    But what are your real needs ? mostly video editing or gaming ?

    If gaming, the i5-3570k will do, no need to spend much more money on the i7.

    Money isnt the real issue performance is. In single threaded benchmark shows 10% over i5 on multithread about 30%
  11. In real games, the difference is null, in some demanding applications (photo and video editing) that difference will be noted about those 30% or more.

    Give me the 5 best mobos i should check out under $180 z77 chipset on amazon
  13. I prefer gigabyte or asrock boards, asus also good ones but the best ones are above the your range price.
    But that msi is also a good one, i'd put that one in the link, but instead put one with thunderbolt port, but that one is superior.
    You can't go wrong with any of those boards, it's hard to know the preferences on others people's mind.
