Sorry for the confusion the only reason i got the i7 was because the ram and mother board came free with it so couldn't just pass up that deal it saved me like 150 bucks

Unless you picked up the i7-3770k at Microcenter, it wasn't a smart choice to get a i7-3770k. The i5-3570k and i7-3770k perform nearly the same when it comes to gaming, you would only need the i7-3770k over the i5-3570k if you were going to do editing. With that money saved on the CPU, you could've gotten a Radeon 7950 which would perform better and give you higher fps in all games. Otherwise this build is pretty nice.

a 3570k and a 7950 would out perform a 3770k and a 7870 at about the same price point.

I agree, unless your video editing.

with a 7870 I don't think a 3570k would bottleneck him at all...

It's not about a bottleneck. For example my Phenom II does not bottleneck my 7870 at all, does that mean that if I were to get an i5 my framerate would stay the same? Of course not, a faster CPU still contributes in gaming.

Yes a faster cpu contributes to gaming, but by how much? A faster gpu contributes a lot more than a faster cpu, which is why you should only be getting the i7-3770k if you get one of the best gpu (i.e. 7970).

I think you would need more than a 7970 to warrant an i7 for gaming lol. The majority of people who get the i7 just do it for epeen. The only time I would actually recommend the i7 is for a workstation computer, or a benching computer. But to answer your question about by how much, not enough to warrant a $100 dollar price increase.

the only difference I have seen between the i5-3570k and the i7-3770k in planet side 2 was the difference of 3-5FPS average and max. The difference was not noticeable in game play and only seen in benchmarks. The only i7 I've seen make a slightly noticeable difference was the $500+ Sandy Bridge E i7-3930k. And now even more so the GPU makes a bigger difference in Planet side 2 especially with Physx on.

Oh, I did not know that. I apologize for providing false information.

if your only gaming i would have gotten a 3570k and upgraded the gpu. Otherwise it looks decent.

looks good. try to use that 550 Ti for Hybrid PhysX if you have a power supply that can handle it.

I would have gotten a 3570k , 8gb ram and a 7970. But still nice build!
