Click on "System Specs" and then read the rest!. I had originally planned to get 3570K after selling my 2500K. Changed my mind. Now I need a quad core with a bang for buck but not 3570K because I will be wasting money on it. No!, no 3570 either. As you can see my build, it's proper bang for buck (for me at least) and consumes less power too, which means I am happy. Now I can go with a Core i3 3rd Gen but I want power too and that i3 would most probably bottleneck the overall power of the PC. So, which quad core should I aim for which will not bottleneck anything and would not be killed by games like Metro Last Light and Crysis 3?. I dont care if it's 2.5GHz, it has to provide 50+FPS keeping the limitation of GPU aside (or lets presume that a 680 is installed). Suggestions please. Keep in mind, price is the biggest factor here. List to choose: Here. Current CPU, G630, will go for 50 to 55$. Edit: Went for 50$. List: Core i5-3330= 189$. Core i5-3450= 193$. Core i5-3470= 198$. Core i5-3550= 213$. Core i5-3570K= 243$. Singled Out: Core i5-3450= 193$. Core i5-3470= 198$. Core i5-3570= 217$. Core i5-3570K=243$. Got: Core i5-3570= 217$.
