To start this out I have just started using a 3570k and am pretty impressed with it compered to a fx-8120, though i was watching some videos and saw a video that stated that the 8350 was about 50% faster than this in games like arma2 for example... This bugs me because i play arma a lot, I just wanted to start a discussion on this and to see if I made a mistake with upgrading(for those of you who know me I am just wanting to talk about it I am happy with the 3570k I was just wondering what others had to say[im talking to you amuffin])
3570K is a better gaming CPU, I happen to have both install in rigs in my home. Those videos can be edited so I will never look at them for advice, rather I trust the multiple hardware sites that do professional reviews inclusive of Toms.
I still Think the i5 3570k is a faster gaming cpu than any amd cpu. I saw the video. its one video vs tons of sites saying the i5 3570k is faster. You did not make the wrong choice. the i5 3570k is a beast of a chip
as far as the site being reputable; if you have google chrome you can set it so any foreign language is translated and brows around the site and read different articles. i definitely find it better than a site like tweaktown.
to be blunt, i would consider it a lot more reputable than a you tube channel where T-shirts and band CDs are being pimped off.
