I want to buy a new pc soon. Ill be getting my CPU + Mobo from Microcenter.


a 5820k+Mobo is actually less than a 7770k +Mobo. Thing is I don't need x99 and the 5820k is quite old. Any advice?

I do like having more powerful hardware but admittedly. I only do mostly gaming with light editing or maybe streaming on the side. Thanks for any replies.

Since you have no use for the extra cores, get the 7770. The 5820 is better for those who need to have extra cores, it won't be as fast for those who need max performance from just a couple of cores.
