Hi guys this is my first post here and i hope i get some usefull asnwers!
I'm pretty new to the whole gaming thing and im looking for a good CPU and Motherboard combo to upgrade my current one!
My current one is Intel Core i5-750 @2.67Ghz and my motherboard is unknown LOL!
Im looking for either a good AMD setup or a good Intel Setup!

I currently also have a MSI GTX 670 OC Power Edition Card that uses a PCIe 3.0!

My budget is pretty low so anything within R4000 (approximately $350)

Please some feedback would be appreciated

Thank You!

Other then the price and the fact it's 100MHz faster (it it's a K edition you can simply change the speed to that on a 3570k) the 3770k has Hyperthreading which simply speeds up maybe 4%-10% in programs like Cinema 4D that use more then 4 cores. It basically simulates 8 cores except every 2 cores run on 1 core. Simply not worth the price IMO. As far as PSUs go, first I would like to point out that you should NEVER use "out of brand" PSUs as they can ruin your system, like overvolting parts of your computer and destroys them (the saying is, if it's less than $40, don't put 120 volts into it, ok I lied, it's not a saying, but still don't do it). Second I would recommend this PSU.
