I see that the 4670k(LGA1150) runs a bit better than 3570K(LGA1155), and that the LGA 1150 is newer. But the difference seems minimal, and I don't if other factors could affect it.


Trying to make a build for around $600.

1150 fo sho.

They *might* still come out with more CPUs that fit it, but even if they don't, it's still the newest one. It will be obsolete less soon.

Generally, you will want to get the most recently released tech. I read that Haswell does not have as high of an overclock ceiling, if that is something you'll be doing. However, it does perform slightly better... like very slightly.

So if I am looking for a CPU in the $200-$250 range, would you suggest to go with the 4670? K means unlock cores right?

I'd go with the i5-4670k for the ability to overclock. It's only like $10 more.

Eh I would get a LGA2011, even if it's older. Of course, this is only If you have the money to afford an i7-3930K.

To keep it all under one topic, 7950 or 760 for graphics card? Is the extra worth for the 760?
