Intel i5-4440 with a Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H
vs I
ntel i5-4670k with a ASUS H81M-C or MSI H87M-E33

Will the board with the i5-4670k survive a year? After I buy a new GPU,I plan to buy a Z87 and a cooler and then OC the CPu to about 4.4,
The PC would be used for gaming (Arma 2,BF4 etc)

  1. It makes no sense. Motherboards have very little effect on performance, whereas CPus are totally affecting performance (that and the GPU, of course). So why put the better CPU on a crappier motherboard when you will in a year throw it away?

    It makes sense to either wait a short while and get the better mobo to go with the better CPU or otherwise you will just waste some money.
