Hey, ghost. If you're going Integrated Graphics, the i5-3570k's HD 4000 is a definite step up from the graphics of the non-k CPU.
You could also opt for a PSU with lower wattage since you're not going to use a discrete card and you're not going to game.
What programs/applications are you thinking of running?
And what sort of upgrades are you thinking of?
The k does not support the virtual needs I have unfortunately.
I really do not know much about psu's I just went with that from reviews/price/ability to add stuff. Thanks I might go with a cheaper one.
Mainly linux os's, lamp stack, I am teaching myself to geek harder basically.
Honestly I do not know. Just in case? Thanks again for advice.
