Default Re: Help me upgrade

If you plan on overclocking then get the K series because it does overclock very good with the multipler.The FSB on the 3570k does not overclock very much. ,unless you go with the X79 and a i7-3820 .It has a ratio where you can change the memory buss to 1.25 and 1.66 .and get good overclocks but that would run around $280 for the i7-3820 and $220 for a gigabyte GA-X79-UD3,but you can run two,three or quad SLI with them because of the 40 lanes.But if you just want a gameing computer then the i5-2500K and the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 would do the job great they would run you around $348. The ASRock Z77 Extreme4 can run SLI ,plus you could get 16gigs of G.Skill DDRs 1600Mhz 1.5v at cas 9-9-9-24 for $75.that would be a pretty fast gameing rig for $423.The i5-2500K runs between 4.4 to 4.8gigs and runs cool.The i5-3570K with a decent water cooler will run around 4.2 yo 4.5gigs.It does run a little hotter then the 2500K .But still a good deal
