The i5 4670k is on sale for $209.99 atm, and it is insanely fast. In games AND multi threaded applications it is superb. It will also overclock well, if you ever get into that. I would buy it quick before it goes back to $239.99. If you do purchase it, make sure your motherboard socket is LGA 1150.

u/pureevil311 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

From what I have seen, there isnt much of a price difference. I would go Haswell since it's current gen. My 2 cents.

i5 3570K Ivy Bridge

i5 4670K Haswell

u/kmisterk · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Why'd you choose socket 2011? You can get the same gaming performance out of socket 1150 for a LOT cheaper. I'm not sure what is available to be shipped to norway, but I'm fairly certain you can get socket 1150 parts shipped out to you.

For instance, this processor matched with this motherboard will give you excellent basis for a solid gaming rig.

Furthermore, you can up the graphics with the money saved to a GTX 670 or a GTX 760 and get the graphics power to play any game on high (for the most part).

also, that powersuply brand isn't exactly amazing. I'd go for something by seasonic, like this or something by thermaltake like this

For a gaming rig, unless you're planning on running virtual machines off of it or use programs that utilize a LOT of memory space (photoshop, autocad, 3dmax), 8GB of ram is plenty. You don't need 16gb. Nothing can utilize that much running games and basic OS functions.

For the most part, unless you're a SERIOUS audiophile, there is no need for a dedicated sound card, considering the board I linked to, and most other z87/h87 boards come with onboard sound cards that can handle up to 7.1 surround on their own.

If 1150 socket components aren't available to you in Norway, then you can look for 1155 components, IE an i5-3570k with a nice z77 based motherboard.

Let me know if you have those options available to you out there. A lot of money can be saved by switching to a less-robust cpu/motherboard platform.

edit After a bit of trial and error, I've discovered it's rather difficult to get things shipped to Norway. is there a norway-based amazon website you can use? or what?

u/seinarcorps · 3 pointsr/buildapc

The 3570k was a great processor, but the new one is out and it costs just as much, so there is no real reason to get the one you linked.

u/AsColdAsZeroKelvin · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Just theorycrafting, but if you are looking to get an i5, you may be able to price match Amazon to Staples. This would reduce the price to Amazon's listing ($233.67). Use the Visa Checkout option and you should be able to get the i5-4670k for $183.67 + tax.

I'm not 100% as I'm not sure if I fully understand Staples' price match policy.

u/magophers · 3 pointsr/buildapc

It's on sale on Amazon right now! (So in case you haven't bought it yet)

u/jwei92 · 2 pointsr/reasoners

The reason you want an i5 even if you never hit the threshold is well, best bang for the buck like Coogle said.

You could always go AMD, with like an 8350 or 6300.

If I were you, I'd get the i5, as it can do massive Reason projects and another thing or two as well.

u/Silver_Foxxx · 2 pointsr/computers

You have a socket 1155 motherboard, so pretty much "any" socket 1155 Core i5 will fit.

That processor will not fit :( It's a socket 1150 processor, so it's not compatible with your motherboard.

CPU Support List

New Socket 1155 CPUs

You might want to compare and contrast the CPU support list and the CPUs available to you.

I always edit for grammar and clarity and I was rude.

u/CynthiaCrescent · 2 pointsr/buildapc

This would last you a good while.
This is the same thing, but with more cores for programs that are better optimized for them.

u/Anon-21 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

True. Infact they are at the same price at Amazon right now (3570k and 4670k)

u/Chris4Hawks · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

i7 4770k is what I was referring to. However, it's pretty expensive, which is why I also suggested the i5 4670k. Both of these are based on the new Haswell architecture for Intel so they'll output a lot of power. As for GPUs, it seems the new GTX 750 TI could do a great job. It's relatively inexpensive and has a lot of horsepower for only $150. I'm not big on mobos, so I'm not going to be much help there.

u/Sukos · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Get this CPU instead, better and on sale for the same price

u/gr4ndm4st3rbl4ck · 2 pointsr/buildapc

CPU : If you're doing just light video editing, i5-4670k might be a better, cheaper choice. If heavy VE, go with i7

The rest seems fine to me.

  1. SSD is much much much faster than an HDD. Basically for the OS and your applications. Some also like to put their games on an SSD for faster loadscreens, but you may need to get a bigger one for that.

  2. That powersupply is overkill in terms of wattage, get a 600-650W power supply from Corsair or Seasonic, unless you plan to add more graphic cards down the line

  3. NZXT H440 Case is apsolutely georgeus, not very expensive, and is nice looking ( no spaceship ). Fractal Design Define R4 would be my alternative to H440

  4. That setup is fine for 2 screens

  5. Everything you linked fits rather well, if you plan to overclock, look for an aftermarket CPU fan.

You can get the 4670k (unlocked) processor for $5 more on Amazon:

u/Furyio · 1 pointr/buildapc

Well, I had been looking into graphics cards all morning and the Nvidia gtx970 keeps coming out with great recommendations. Pricey though for me.

And then appears that my CPU might be a bit of a bottleneck stepping up to the latest and greatest cards.

Currently looking at the following




And then hoping to sell my current trio for maybe €200 might help what appears to be nearly a €600 spend ( €200 over budget)

u/I_AM_GRUMPY · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

This is what it has been on amazon for a while @ link (and NCIX US)

It's a BS 'sale'.

u/PervertedBatman · 1 pointr/Games

>i5 sandybridge is the best bang for you buck, at least since I last read the reviews and benchmarks.

Your better off getting the new releases, the difference is only $50.

u/gvin0403 · 1 pointr/buildapc

No problems in terms of incompatibilities. The 4670K is actually 29 cents less.That is always nice in case you want to overclock in the future.

u/iamtom123 · 1 pointr/admincraft

I cant seem to find the same cpu in any UK online stores :/

I think i may have to get this as an alternative.

u/ziptofaf · 1 pointr/buildapc

Overclocking is very easy nowadays. Let me show you how exactly to be exact (for Asus higher-end motherboards):

  • Step 1: turn on AI Suite 3
  • Step 2: click on 5 way optimization
  • Step 3: just click on Start, don't care about other values

    And... that automatically overclocked my CPU to 3.8 GHz, adjusted fan speeds etc. Not too shabby for something that took me one click. Manual overclocking isn't particularly hard either, it just takes a bit of practice.

    To ensure there won't ever be incompatibility issues (i5-5675c came out after most Z97 motherboards and might require BIOS update which can be harsh if you don't know anyone to lend you an older 4xxx CPU for 5 minutes) you can go with either:

  • i5-5675c + Asus Maximus VII Ranger - 427€ - Asus Maximus VII Ranger was chosen due to making overclocking as simple as humanly possible and ability to update BIOS even without ANY CPU installed (just in case it wouldn't work out of the box - you will just need an USB drive with a bios file and it will automatically update). It also comes with 5 year door-to-door warranty. You can pick cheaper Asus Z97 Pro Gamer / MSI Z97 Gaming 5 / Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5 if you ask in the shop if it arrived to them after July 2015.

  • i5-4690K + Asus Z97 Pro Gamer or MSI Z97 Gaming 5 - 401.98€ - a bit slower but also a bit cheaper.

  • i5-4670K + Gigabyte Z87X OC - 388,14€ - abusing the fact that older Z87 chipset is a cheaper than Z97 (and if you look around you might find it for far less - in Poland I saw brand new Gigabyte Z87X OC for 90€) and it's not actually worse. i5-4670K instead of 4690K as it's not 100% guaranteed that the latter will work on Z87 motherboard without BIOS update (Z87 motherboards are mostly leftovers in shops).

    I really really tried to fit i7-4790K or 4770K somehow too but I don't think it's doable within 450. Within 500 yes. It would give you an edge in multithreaded games such as Watch Dogs / Fallout 4 but as said - it exceeds a budget a bit too much.

    Do note - sooner or later you will want to replace a cooler on your CPU as well if overclocking. I don't think it needs to be done TOO soon (even at stock settings these ones are more than sufficient for cards up to R9 390) but it's something to keep in mind. Decent coolers start from around 25€, for 50-65€ you can find high-end air ones (which easily beat up up to 130€ liquid ones).
u/Watery_Bottle · 1 pointr/buildapc

Fifth Generation doesn't refer to i3, i5, i7, etc. For example, my i7 4790k is a fifth generation chip. Generation just refers to when the chip family was released. Here's a i5 4670k, for example. If you use the "Compare to Similar Items" feature a little further down that tab, it'll show you which socket the processors use. If you're interested in that z97 MOBO, then make sure the processor supports LGA 1150.

This is a pretty nice computer. I just ordered a computer nearly the same as this yesterday, only with a larger hard drive, a Zalman CPU cooler, and a blu-ray burner instead of a DVD burner.

Here are some of my thoughts on the above parts:

  • CPU: It has the most powerful Intel i5 CPU that was just released in June. It's an overclockable CPU and it's probably the most popular CPU on /r/buildapc.

  • GPU: It has the nVidia GTX 760. This graphics card is a great deal for the price. It's just slightly less powerful than the GTX 670 from the previous generation, but it's $100 cheaper. It should be able to play most games at 1080p at at least 60 frames per second.

  • SSD: Samsung's 840 Pro series has the best controller in the industry. This is considered to be the most reliable line of solid-state drives. It has great read and write speeds.

  • Case: The BitFenix Prodigy is a fairly popular case. It's stylish and available in several colors.

  • Motherboard: The GA-Z87N-WIFI has a built-in 802.11n wifi card, Bluetooth 4.0, five USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and 5.1 stereo audio output. It supports up to 16 GB of RAM and is overclockable.

  • RAM: This 16GB kit is a good deal at $115. At 1600 MHz it is the fastest supported by the above motherboard. This RAM is low-profile to ensure it won't physically block any CPU cooler upgrade you may want in the future.

  • PSU: This Silverstone power supply is fully modular, and it's only 140mm long, which will hopefully make it easy to install in the smaller PSU compartment of the BitFenix Prodigy case.

>I was looking at ordering an xbox one or PS4 but decided to upgrade my PC instead.

Good choice :P
Glad to see you're British, makes it easier to suggest things in my currency.
Gaming is around 80% graphics card, maybe a little less, but you want to be spending a good third of any budget into it. Here's my recommended upgrade for you:

Processor: Intel i5 4670k (Haswell)

Motherboard: To support your speedy processor, you're going to need this.
That motherboard is amazing, you'll be able to overclock to 5.0GHz +

Now we're up to about £300.

Graphics card: Let's put around £350 into this. This is an amazing card, will run absolutely any game at max settings @ 1080p really well.
EDIT: Just re-read and you want AMD I see. This is also very good. Stays cool and performs really well

Now for some better RAM. Upgrading to DDR3 here: 8GB (Easily all you need for any game)

You will need a bigger case too. This is a stunning case (You can change the colour). You can see inside clearly, and looks amazing with loads of space inside.

The rest of your current spec is fine. Hope this helped, good luck.
Comes out to around £671 and will play anything at all at max settings.

u/Dunk_13 · 1 pointr/buildapc

it should fit easily into the one in your spreadsheet (although i can't see full spec on what it'll fit).
Processor you may also want to swap for a "k" model which can be overclocked (

u/TheShadowBlade92 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

The power supply will be fine. The i5 and motherboard are a little bit dated, 4GB of memory should probably be upgraded to at least 8GB for modern gaming. You could buy an R9 290 for under $300. You could keep the Radeon HD 5870 (it should still be fine to play games at 1080p medium settings, unless the titles have been ubisofted) and upgrade CPU and Motherboard, then upgrade the 5870 in a month or two. One last thing: upgrade to GTX 750 Ti FTW from EVGA, LGA 1150 motherboard, Pentium G3258, 8GB RAM. That will give you plenty of options for upgrades. You could go as far as a Core i7 + GTX 980 later. The power supply will hold up to any of these options.

Links to items on Amazon:

Just R9 290

Keep the HD 5870 and upgrade CPU + Motherboard

Motherboard -

Pentium G3258, GTX 750 Ti FTW, LGA 1150 motherboard, 8GB RAM.

Yes, I realize some of these are slightly over a total of $300. Also these options (aside from r9 290) give the system plenty of room to upgrade. As for power supply, the TX 650 should be fine. Reuse your old hard drive and reuse your case.

u/Treedog798 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'll probaly will just go i5 and keep a single gpu. Really just wanted to explore my options with people who knew a shit-ton more than me. I think I'm going to end up buying (so I can keep my DDR3) and

u/zomgoblin · 1 pointr/buildapc

This was my first build, and I'm having a hard time understanding what my rig can handle.

GPU: GTX 780 Classified

Monitor: BenQ XL2420Z 144hz

Ram: G.Skill Ares DDR3 (2x4GB)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X


CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K

H100i for cooling and SSD/HDD for storage

My goal is 3-4 monitor + TV set up once I move to a place with more space in the near future, running any game 60+ fps across the multiple screens. Currently all is awesome on one screen. However, Linus tech tips makes me want higher than 1080p

Questions: Second GPU or overclock current Gtx 780? If 2nd GPU, need new higher wattage PSU? And, am I stuck mirroring the Gtx 780, or is pairing with slightly better one ok? I get that the slower one limits...uh...things...

Mixing new IPS panel(s) with current TN panel seem weird?
Upgrading to 2-3 of these 1440p monitors seem like too much? Feel like mismatched screen sizes would be irritating.

I realize these may not be very 'simple' questions. All input appreciated.

u/pterodactalrubik · 1 pointr/buildapc

You CPU is Ivy Bridge. Upgrade to this newer Haswell. If you are planning on overclocking it is recommended to get an aftermarket CPU cooler. The best budget one is a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

u/primenumbersturnmeon · 1 pointr/buildapc

$209.99 on Amazon now, definitely worth it. It was on sale for $190 on Monday, but the price is still lower than usual.

u/vilenightwing · 1 pointr/buildapc

I am having fun thanks, i think ill reconsider that small of a case. figure ill go with
CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced

and actually that page suggested the i5-4670k for 10 bucks less, i understand that I couldn't use the overclocking feature but it seems to be benchmarked a little higher for less.

Should i go for that?

and last but not least i may be ignorant and don't want to be rude, but doesn't the motherboard need to have a 3.0 slot for the GPU that has a 3.0 connector

i appreciate you guidance Mr. Kareem

u/stuckintheanimus · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

Thank you so much! This makes the transition that much easier for me. If we're going with the 4670, would this be a good option? I'm not sure what the K means and if it makes any difference with the build you put together.

u/karmapopsicle · 1 pointr/buildapc

Not necessarily. Any Haswell (iX-4xxx CPUs) i5 is going to have plenty of power for a modern gaming rig, so if you say find a deal for an i5-4440 for $160, depending on your budget, it's very likely that money could be put to use elsewhere in the build.

Amazon has the i5-4670K on for $200 right now though, so if you're buying soon you might as well pick that up along with an inexpensive basic Z87 board. Even if you don't have plans for overclocking, given the price differences it's something that's worth having around, so a year or two you can easily pick up a cooler and get some more performance out of the rig, especially for something like a big GPU upgrade.

u/thoon · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm toying with upgrading/rebuilding a pc built in 2009 and I'd like some advice on the CPU and motherboard. Should I replace them, or work around them:

  • Intel i7-920 2.66ghz

  • EVGA e758-TR 58x MoBo

    I plan on upgrading my OS from Vista to 7 or 8, but I don't want to tie the key to a 5 year old board in case it dies. Also, the board limits my DDR3 to 1600, and SATA to 3gb/s. And if I just replace the MoBo to take take advantage of some new memory or a HD, then I'll have to hunt for a replacement that fits my CPU's LGA 1366.

    All told, I think the simplest route would be to start from scratch. But would it be a downgrade to switch to something like the i5-4670K or i5-3350P?
u/DoctorJanitorsfan · 1 pointr/buildapc

If you can, spend an extra £50 on an i5 4670k I found many on amazon for around £150.

u/Pertzel · 0 pointsr/buildapc

Rather than going with the very expensive i7, I would go with the [i5 4670k] ( This will save you a little money and honestly, since you're overclocking, will give you more than enough processing power. If you were bumping up your build to something more like in the 2k range then sure go for an i7. But it's not worth it imo, esp since you're overclocking. Other than that, I don't see anything out of the ordinary.
