  1. I think i5 3570k as it can last longer as it can easily overclock that cpu but eve 3470 is fine
  2. Dude, I dont think a CPU will bottleneck, it's the GPU that most games rely on right?
  3. 3570k

    I'd be using only for gaming no CPU intensive work.
  9. Do not get bulldozer cpu like fx 4100,4170,6100,8120.they are not so good while pile driver like fx 6300,8350 is fine but still i5 is better.
