i want my pc for gaming purpose only.
no heavy tasking.
i want to make one time investment ,so that it runs atleast 5 years or so.
i heard that 2500k is enough but 3570k is slightly ahead,so why not go for it.
should i go for 3470??
and do i need a cooler if i use a 3570k or the case just works fine?
i dont want to damage any part of it.
like you said for gaming purposes the money you save with the i5-3470 (you don't want to oc the i5-3570k) goes for a better gfx card and that's what counts 7850>>>6850.
The stock cooler provides decent cooling just for the stock speeds which in your case will be enough.
k you've convinced me for 3470 .
and also for the gpu . Though money is no issue.
now the mobo. should i go for a z77 or h77.
which would be the best of all. what are the best options available leaving money apart
