3570k VS 4690k

My friend just asked me which one is worth it but I couldnt answer him cause I couldnt find any gaming benchmarks.

IMO I think he should just get the Ivy over the haswell to save a few buck or so. I wanna know what you guys think and if its worth $120. BTW I sold him my Noctua NH-D14 so overclocking is a must.

i5 3570k + Gigabyte Z77-UD3H = $200

i5 4690k + Gigabyte Z97-UD3H = $320

Gaming performance might vary a couple of FPS between the two, I would just get the i5 3570K, its still is a excellent cpu.

I think so too, but I got nothing to back it up to tell my friend that. He is running a MSI GTX 970, because I asked a few days ago about the R9 290 vs GTX 970.

You're not going to tell the difference between the two in games and real world work loads. So, I'd save the $120 and buy a better GPU. The only real reason to get the 4690k is the igpu and better components on motherboard. Overclocking both will get to like 4.5+/- pretty easily with some luck getting to 4.6-4.8+/-. So if you need a lot of usb 3.0's get haswell, but if you dont and want to get a GTX 970 over a R9-280x then get ivy.

3570k runs about 10-20% slower per clock speed vs the 4690k. So one would assume in a perfect environment that a 4.0 ghz 3570k will run as fast as a stock 4690k.

Thank you for this very specified answer, I'll be deciding on which combo this weekend.

Websites such as UserBenchmark for comparisons.

While there are others willing to hand hold you through the process, I'm not one of them. Direct comparisons of processors, USB flash drives, SSDs... are available at UserBenchmark.

Plenty of members here have already used that website numerous times.

3570K vs 4690K

While the 3570k is a great performer still, I don't see the justification for 120$ difference. IF the 3570K and mobo are brand new, then get it. If you are getting it used, then make sure that the motherboard and chip are in good condition.

They're both in used condition, but the 3570k is bundle while the 4690k is not so I have to go to another buyer to get the motherboard.

i5 4690k + Gigabyte Z97-UD3H = $320 will be good choice.

hmmmm i may actually go for the i5-3570k instead of a 4690k
