Longivity wise, I bet both are going to be around the same since games are just being optimized for 2 cores... I'd save the money by going with 3570k and a good cooler to overclock it... Share Livingston December 21, 2012 6:37:34 AM Thanks. I had settled on the 3570k initially, but then I read Tom's gift guide and they listed the 3930k for their high end machines and the 3570k for their mid range. So I thought I might be missing something. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Livingston December 21, 2012 2:50:01 PM Best answer selected by Livingston.
