    Hi Vanguard Ofcourse Cor i7 is better than i5. But with cor i5 you wont have much problems

    One of my friends have:
    CPU: Cor i5
    RAM: 8 GB
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 560
    He can play the latest games like NFS: Rivals, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Batman: Arkham Origins, Crysis 3, Medal of Honor: Warfighter etc. at highest config without any issues

    Actually according to the reviews, i7 doesn't have significant benefits over i5 in terms of gaming only... this is because, most current-gen games, which are mostly console ports, doesn't take advantage of i7's Hyper-Threading.

    Example:
    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/I...parison/8.html
    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/I...parison/8.html

    But maybe who know... if next-gen games takes advantage of Hyper-Threading, then i7 will kick ¤¤¤.

    exactly my point. i5 is still good but not the best. And not future proof either.

    I'm NOT saying Cor i5 is the the BEST. What I want to say is, i5 should be working fine. I'm NOT saying i5 is the best processor in the world.

    i had 560 for 2 years. u can play 1080p medium crysis 3 and and high bf4 SP with i5+560. for bf4 MP-> medium if u wanna compete with ur enemy.
    1080p high to ultra bf3.
    crysis2 high after dx11 and texture patch

    I am talking about i7 vs i5... not i3 and dual core.

    BF3 is one of the few games that actually uses Hyper-Threading Technology of i7, so you will get more performance with i7 in BF3... but most games don't, so there is virtually no difference between i5 and i7 when it comes to games (provided clock speed and cache are the same).

    Bottom line, if you want gaming only, i5 is better. If you want work first and gaming later, i7 is better. I use i7-3770K myself, but it has no significant benefit over i5 like 3570K in gaming.

    That OCN post was great but it didn't answer the question at hand with proper results. There IS a difference in BF4 with HT on and off. From what I can tell so far, minimum FPS improves by a decent margin. I didn't do any benches so can't provide any numbers either.

    But besides that, an i5 (second-gen and beyond) should still be enough for gaming. Most games still don't use hyper threading although there is a chance that things might change pretty soon. But even considering that potential change, the money spent on getting the i7 vs the i5 will be better spent on getting a better GPU instead. It will be a big mistake to get an i7 instead of using that money towards a GPU.

    And then there's Mantle, that should put more emphasis on the GPU than the CPU.

    i don't get why people are talking about resolution here. cpu has nothing to do against resolution. in a certain game cpu performs exactly the same operations(mostly logical and physics calculation related) no matter whatever resolution u're using. resolution is entirely gpu bounded, more specifically a vram bounded thing. despite gpu bottlenecked resolution there may be ~1/2 fps difference between different processors in some games. which is for the minimum fps during periodic fps drop.
    so far the only advantage of i7 over i5 is the extra 2mb l3 cache. hyper threading is not yet a matter for gaming, since no games ever released have been really optimized to run in 8 threads simultaneously. when it will start today's i7 processors will get obsolete too......

    Now if the above mentioned is truer then say u have a 780ti or going to have something like that in the coming yr or so and ur preferred resolution is 1080p then u r well off with an i5 4670k for 2 yr or so ....that is considering something in the price range of 780ti and if ur budget is lower than that then u may calibrate the cpu choice accordingly.
    Go for a k version so that u can overclock may be not now but after a yr when gpu will bottleneck then it will prove handy
    Then u can always upgrade to an i7 if required in the future ...who knows u may find a 2nd hand one dirt cheap after a yr or so

    There are lot of spec junkies out there who will tell u otherwise and now a days marketing and promotion is on such high state that one is provoked to spend on such things that one may never use but if u r a budget gamer like me then i5 is ur best bet right now

    There's a good article over at AT which compares many different CPU's and different levels of GPU power. Link here

    In short, for a midrange single GPU, even the lowest variant of i5 is more than enough. Civilization 5 taxes the CPU more than any game I've seen (supreme commander comes close) and even there, anything above an i5-2500k shows minimal gains. An i3 would not be recommended as quad cores are recommended at the least and Civ 5 shows the performance loss as it takes advantage of more than two cores.

    I am unaware of the minimum frames impact of HT in BF4 that aayman mentioned though but from my understanding it should not be substantial, certainly not enough to warrant an extra $100. In general, HT has a negligible impact on gaming performance and the conclusion page in the link I sent shows the comparison between HT and no HT (4670k vs 4770k).
