    need an advice

    Hi im thinking about a new computer (my is 3years old only new thing is my GPU nvidia 570) and i got the MOBO i like but cant decide on CPU.

    this is the MOBO i like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131802 was thinking something for high end gaming + computer programing/graphic design (well learning in progress) all im gonna use is the GPU ( I will replace when the price for 680 drops) and hard drives. The price for the CPU is max 500 dollars. So if someone of the computer veterans could help me out i will be glad.


    P.S sorry for my grammer im from Czech Republic

    If you are dead-set on that motherboard, there is only one CPU that would fit it below 500 USD, and that would be the i7 3820.

    The platform (mobo/CPU) is complete overkill for gaming pricewise, while providing a somewhat neglectable (albeit present) difference in games.

    You'd get similiar or better performance out of these two;
    CPU (same for a cheaper price but elsewhere)
    Motherboard

    No. I just don't think they'd enough better to justify the price-jump, however.

    You could buy a more expensive motherboard, but I really don't see any point in that. You'll get more performance out of it if you buy another GPU than spend more on a CPU/Mobo

    Youb can drop down to a 7870 to budget in a 3570K. You can change the case to a coolermaster 690 II or similar to save 40-50 bucks there too if you want.

    I'm pretty sure his $1200 budget was for only his CPU, mobo, heatsink and RAM, so for other parts he should be able to spend pretty much more.

    all i need is CPU, mobo, heatsink and RAM and i would like a mobo that got PCI Express 3.0 x16 so i could get the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130772 when price drops and the 3rd gen CPU

    Well, the Asrock board I suggested has PCIE 3.0, so that part is solved. I am pretty sure that the next gen CPUs will use a completely new socket, so I don't think you can prepare for that.

    That is new gen, not next gen. Socket 1155, as the board I linked is.

    No, it will definitely not be worth it for you. Just a big big waste of money for you.

    Take the things I linked earlier for you and slap on a Plextor M3 256GB SSD and you'll be good to go. If you're so eager to spend more money, ebay your 570 and get a 7970.
