Every precious second you waste on waiting you could be doing some sweet gaming, think about that when you want to be waiting for next gen series another time.

what is your major workload ?

Gaming : No reason to wait for Haswell. IB will perform the same as Haswell

Office work : You dont even need a IB. Buy a core2duo :p 

Video conversion/rendering : Yes. But there is no fixed date when Haswell will release.

If you want a mix of rendering & gaming then wait for the haswell to come out.

My 3570k at max is used 35% gaming. There is no reason to wait.

I think you will be very happy with the current generation of Intel® Core™ processors and I would go with an Intel Core i5-3570K; I think you will love it.

Depends on your situation.

What do you have now ? is it struggling ? will a 1155 upgrade really be worth the cash ? what kind of performance increase will 1155 give you and is it enough ?

There are and will for a long time be no games that a 1150 i5 CPU will be able to play that a 1155 cant.


Mactronix :)

I am using an amd phenom x2 with a radeon 6850 OC @820MHZ and I want to upgrade my cpu to get better performance in gaming as I feel the phenom x2 is bottlenecking the 6850
I only use my computer for gaming actually I want to play Crysis 3 ,call of duty 2 and medal of honor warfighter so I want to upgrade to a quad core cpu

That gpu and cpu are weak for Crysis 3. You might be better off building a whole new system.

I have a low budget only 600$ and I wanted to upgrade the mother board and the cpu ,I was thinking about getting a new z77-ud3h with i5 3570k and 2 kingston hyperx 4GB and i already have an ocz power supply 500w and the 6850 toxic

Well the 6850 will really hold you back in Crysis 3 (assuming it's more taxing that Crysis 2). For $600 you can get a 3570k+Extreme 4+7950 in my country. Do you have a website you want to use?

Not necessarily. Both are good boards for the price.

You could save a lot by choosing a B75 MOBO and an i5-3570 (non-k version). If you did that, then you would have about 300$ or more left to buy a new GPU for. If you sold your old GPU you could afford a GTX 670 or a Radeon 7970! Also just might add another stick of RAM.

Don't be afraid that you can't overclock. Overclocking is mostly only for bragging, and doesn't add up performance as much as you would think. A lot of people buys expensive z77 MOBOS and unlocked CPUs and never overclock the CPU.

There's been a lot of debate about the 660ti vs the 7950 with no concensus. If that's your price range for a gpu I suggest getting the cheaper of the two.
