I5 3570k or the I7 3770k Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Intel i5 Product Last response: December 30, 2012 2:59 AM in CPUs Share thefallan December 30, 2012 2:34:48 AM I was wondering which would be better i found the i7 for 30 dollars more so is this worth it; I am using this computer for mainly gaming purposes. More about : 3570k 3770k shaun_shaun December 30, 2012 2:40:06 AM honestly I don't think its worth it ... you ll get the same performance in most of the games... i7 will give you few extra frames .. but that difference is negligible.. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6396/the-vishera-review-a... m 0 l ilysaml a b à CPUs December 30, 2012 2:41:23 AM For gaming, there's no difference at all. For other CPU intensive applications and multi-threaded applications i7 is the sweet choice $30 more? Hell that's a great deal go for it, normally the i7 3770K is $100 more. m 0 l Related resources i7 3770k or i5 3570k - Forum Intel i5 3570k (4,8Ghz) vs Intel i7 3770k? - Forum i7 3770k vs i5 3570k or wait till next build... - Forum i7 3770k or i5 3570k for future proof - Forum i7 4770k vs i7 3770k vs i5 3570k gaming performance - Forum Can't find your answer ?

But for $30 I would get the i7... however,,, if you are certain you are only using the cpu for gaming and nothing else then... either is fine. as said in many threads, no difference will be noticed in gaming between i5 and i7 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
