About the best bang for the buck processor available if your plan on overclocking later. I have a non-k Ivy bridge 3450 and it easily handles any workload or game I throw at it without any overclock and will for many years to come. Once you hit Ivy bridge its all about the 1. GPU 2. RAM 3. SSD in that order of priority (Assuming you have at least 4 gigs of ram to begin with).
just bought it. since mu current one died T_T and i cant use my comp. so just wondering what u guys think of it?
checked some rewives ofc. but always prefer getting some insight of things from u guys
I'll be doing my rebuild next month with a 3570k that my wife got me for Christmas. No need to OC until you really know what you're doing, anyway. OCing is about learning to get past failures -- and then celebrating those success in between. Hardware is pretty far ahead of software right now (in regard to games) so you'll be set for a while.
Nice looking case; I'm still sporting a 2007 antec 300 case. Maybe it will blow up some day and give me the opportunity to rebuild from scratch... or I can win the lottery and give it to charity or my wife can begin gaming.. or hell can freeze over...
