hi people, i need little help

Approximate Purchase Date: next month

Budget Range: 40,000-50,000 RUPEES, After Buuying

System Usage from Most to Least Important: For 3D animation rendering

Are you buying a monitor: MAYBE(LeastPriority)



Parts to Upgrade: Everything*

Do you need to buy OS: No
Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: ebay.in

Location: INDIA

Parts Preferences: Intel)

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: The Best with the Budget

So, that won't be enough, i guess
Let State my preferences

CPU::Intel® Core™ i7-3770K Processor (DECIDED)

Motherboard::Best to Perform with the above processor

16GB RAM-1333MHz

now the problem is with GPU
i know i cannot afford a QUADRO

Before that i need to explain a bit about my previous config::
ITS A

Intel i5-2320 @ 3.0
Intel-DH67BL
8GB RAM
Nvidia GefroceGTX 560Ti

which is the best performing up-till now, when compared to other systems with QuadCores

i think 3D rendering is based on number of CUDA cores
now the problem is, is there a better performer than 560Ti within the budget ?

so, please help me with motherboard and GPU
and also, if ASUS is better than Intel (within the range) , i'm ok with it.

hope someone reply's

ThankYou in Advance

Erm, I know you're decided with the i7-3770K, but I can't help but point out that you stated you have no plans on OC-ing, hence the i7-3770 would probably be better.

really thank you,
i was actually wondering what to choose between them, which i have forgot to mention.
don't feel wrong about what i'm asking, just curious, 'are you sure about i7-3770 than i7-3770K'
i want you to understand that i meant no harm in asking the above question
just asking like that because those two CPU are new and i don't know much about them and i was, well confused in choosing either of them :( 

And one more thing....
CAN HYPER-THREADING BE TRUSTWORTHY?

LET ME EXPLAIN why i am asking this.
there is an first gen i7 (forgot model number), with 2.93 and 8 cores
after inspired by the rendering speed of the MY FIRST i5(2nd Gen) BUILD (MENTIONED IN MY STARTING POST)
i bought another GPU, same 560Ti and fixed to the 1stGen i7 @ 2.93

{NOTE: i5--GPU---MSI; i7---GPU---ZOTAC}

to my utter astonishment, the above mentioned 1stGen-i7 sys is only giving the half the performance of the 2ndGen-i5

this is my foremost worry when buying a new CPU

im really need help :??:

The i7-3770 is essentially the i7-3770K minus the unlocked multiplier which is utilized in OC-ing. They have the same features.

I don't know of any Intel CPU with 8 cores. o_o

Generation update is a bigger factor when judging performance than i#.
A more recent generation obviously has bigger improvements.

Gigabyte places 2nd in the world's best motherboard manufacturers, just behind ASUS.
I would suggest:
Asrock z77 Pro4
A 7850 should be enough for your rendering needs.

Xeons are for servers though. Yet it *is* cheaper so I guess it's a good alternative.
