OK FINAL FINAL PC build

Hence why I recommended 2500k. Same base specs, unlocked multiplier, and should be cheaper. It also overclocks just as well as 3570k, in spite of being an older chip.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

Doesn't appear to be a 3550k, but there IS a 3570k. $40 more, but it's probably worth the extra price.


to note I wont be doing any OC with this system... As that requires sufficent cooling to do which I wont have...

A $30~ Hyper 212+/Evo cooler will be plenty enough for a significant overclock.

2500k costs 10 bucks more...

If I go that route I save 9 bucks?!?

LOL, I had my numbers mixed up. Thought I had been looking at a 3550k, myself, but I deleted the post when I realized it was a 3570k.

I say go for the unlocked processor. Even if you don't have the cooling option now, it would be much cheaper just to get a cooler in the future in order to overclock the CPU, rather than replacing the CPU altogether.

On the flip side, would the investment in the 3570k over the 2500k prove any worthwhile benefit, besides a slightly lower wattage with the 3570k?

$10 for a 800-1200mhz increase is pretty nice, really...

Edit: And, IB is, I think, very slightly faster than SB in some things. It also has a better integrated graphics chip, though that certainly doesn't matter in a system with a DGPU anyway.
Similar to the difference between Thuban and Deneb, aside from the extra cores.

Sounds like $10 well spent. You could ALWAYS just upgrade to the 212+ in the future if you decide to overclock.

So a 2500k has the same performance than a 3350 at stock speeds?

Pretty much identical to 3550, yeah.
