    if i was mostly gaming i would follow chino's advice, id rather get a better gpu than cpu in these cases, though it would be somehow different if we're talking about professional stuffs and benches

    If I was going to buy an i5-4670k, I would rather buy a new "Kaveri" A10-7850k. Slightly better performance in games than the 4670k, cheaper, and with AMD Mantle coming out it will blow the 4670k away.

    I would buy the Kaveri A10-7850k and an R9 270x, and then wait for mantle to come out so that I will play games like I'm using a better system.
    Say hi to the next generation.

    I already got the Maximus VI Formula with the 1150 intel socket. So the A10-7850k CPU would not work for my MB.
