So the new intel i3s are now true quad core and there is an unlocked version? Nice. Is anybody planning to buy the 8350K for gaming? Is $200 too much for the 8350K when you can pay a bit more for an i5 7600K? So is the 8350K having a bigger cache than the 7600K will make a difference?

A long time ago they were sold out of the best I7 I wanted, so I bought a $40 G4400 with a over the top system with a GTX 980 Ti

@_@

To this day every single game I play in my collection of 2,000+ steam games still plays at max settings ~_~.

Moral of the story?

The CPU is 100% pointless unless you are gaming over 1080p.

I mean I probably will buy a Kaby Lake i7 7700k if they go on sale for black friday/cyber monday ~_~.

Just to "finish" the system as it's been like 2.5 years.

But it's not like I've ever ran across a SINGLE problem or slow down from having such a s***ty cpu ~_~.

I'm still waiting for cheaper 300 series motherboards so I can build my budget i3 8100 gaming rig.

That 8100 is a bargain compared to how much I spent on my 3570K which is probably slower than that chip now.

The CPU is 100% pointless unless you are gaming over 1080p.

So basically it's overkill for 1080p gaming? Wow things have changed a lot since I build my rig in 2013.
