I would like more CPU power when gaming. Currently, I have an 15 4570k CPU and I would like it to perform better or get a new one altogether. Should I go for an unlocked i5 and overclock it to improve performance and save money or should I settle for an i7 then overclock it?
Between 15k and i7k processor, which is best for gaming?
The best solution would be to choose an i5 over an i7 if the primary purpose is gaming.If you are also interested in video or photo editing, modifying music notes or extensive applications like CAD, MATLAB,etc then you can go for an i7. For gaming purposes, i5 is almost as efficient as i7 and it sure makes sense to save the extra bucks by opting for an i5 over an i7.
