It's last generation's best i5. If it's cheaper than the 4670K including the most expensive motherboards you can go with it. If they're around the same price I'd go with the 4670K.

If he goes for a 3570k hes crippled himself on the future proofing front.

There's no such thing as future-proofing.

I just checked and yeah, they are about the same price, so i guess i will be getting the 4670K if it is at least slightly better.

There's no point in making up stuff. There's a handful of games that support hyper-threading (and most of these games don't even need it at all) and they benefit from it well enough. Other games are either not affected or experience insignificant frame drops. Applications cannot use more than 4 threads if they are not coded to, that's common sense.

While the future proof argument is somewhat valid, An i5 will last him about just as long as an i7 if he overclocks. CPU's go a long way before they bottleneck the rig.

It's not worth it to buy an i7 on a computer built primarily for gaming. Period.


There is since's he's going to use it for five years.
Already today, games like Crysis 3 and BF3 benefit from more than 4 cores/threads. It's very likely we'll see games getting even more multithreaded since that's a must in order to get good performance out of the next-gen consoles.

Back in the days, lots of guys opted for C2D E8000 CPU rather than a C2Q 6000 CPU because it could be overclocked better and games didn't use more than two cores.

Today however, a C2D is hopeless for modern games, whereas a C2Q can still perform acceptably

The i5 is powerful to the point that the i7 will take pretty damn long to be relevantly more effective. It's really not worth it to gamble and spend an additional $100. That money should be saved or spent on something more useful.
