OK so I dont wanna be mean but your date for i5 3330 its not good and induce deception among ppl who acutly take you as a guide line....I own an i5 3330 and the score of cpu in 3dmark 11 on standar(performance) is 6300+ with stock clocks aka 3ghz and 3.2ghz on turbo...so pls rectifai it...also I use a low chipset h61 so maybe on a z77 I can take like 6500
the better one cost less -_-... i have the intel i5 3330......
