The 4770k is the CPU I would choose if I was building right now regardless of budget (providing the budget allowed for it without cutting corners elsewhere of course). It outperforms the 3930k/4930k in most games. The only two I can name off the top of my head where the 6 core processors come out ahead are BF4 and Crysis 3. Those two games run on 8 threads so 6 fast cores (plus hyperthreading) is obviously going to beat 4 slightly faster cores (again with hyperthreading). Most modern games, however, utilize 2-4 threads and virtually all older games only use 1 which puts the 4 slightly faster cores at an advantage.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
Never mind. Just thought of a build myself, just need to know if it will be able to run brand new games and games coming in the next few years. Specs are:
Processor: Intel Core i5-4670k Motherboard: MSI z87-G55 Memory: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz low profile GPU: ASUS Geforce GTX 660 DirectCU II (going to overclock probably once I figure out how to when I build this) Case: Corsair Carbide series 200r Boot Drive: Western Digital Black 500gb Hard Drive Optical Drive: OEM DVD Drive PSU: Antec EA-550 Platinum Efficient PSU OS: Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit)
If a part won't do the trick, please let me know what part and what I should replace it with.
