If it would have been for gaming mostly then I5 would have done the trick but your uses justify the I7. m 0 l lionelmessi January 1, 2013 2:42:20 PM But I know all i7 is better than i5... So why not just buy the 3770k why do people go and buy the 3570k...annoys me m 0 l rolli59 a c 896 à CPUs January 1, 2013 2:44:42 PM Because saving $100 get 99%+ of the gaming performance instead of having 8 thread capable CPU that you never take past 4. m 0 l payturr a b à CPUs January 1, 2013 2:47:53 PM The Core i7 isn't better than the i5 it just offers more threads than the i5, which is really useless for modern gaming. m 0 l lionelmessi January 1, 2013 2:54:34 PM Huh so wtf ?... Why is it called the i7 then lol ? I'm confused ..? m 0 l rolli59 a c 896 à CPUs January 1, 2013 2:58:23 PM lionelmessi said:Huh so wtf ?... Why is it called the i7 then lol ? I'm confused ..? Because of hyper threading it can do 8 threads versus 4 on I5 although both are quad core! m 0 l lionelmessi January 1, 2013 4:07:02 PM And everything else is the same ? m 0 l rolli59 a c 896 à CPUs January 1, 2013 4:24:02 PM 3770 vs 3570 is 0.1 GHz difference as well in core speed. m 0 l lionelmessi January 1, 2013 5:48:27 PM oh ok, i understand, the threads i normally uses 4 and wont use the other 4 anyway. And If i save that much i can send else where. Also 0.1 GHz difference , and everything else is obviously similar m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
