Gracias, hermano.
I have had and built pc's using the 3770k chip very very good chip. But I have now made up PC using the 4670k chip. At first glance not much between them. With the 3770k 4 cores 8 hyperthreads having the multy tasking advantage"Just" But when you get the 4670k chip warmed up. Adjust its onboard graphics to 1500mhz clock the cpu to 3.8ghz then you have one great chip. Graphics with out pci card are great and with amazing. The cpu if you lower the volts to around 1.25-1.27 can run up around 5.2ghz will happily run at 4.6ghz with out voltage change. at these speeds it will beat the 3770 in ever department that counts. graphics wise will blow away. No question in my mind. If making a gaming machine and you have not the money for the 4770k get the 4670k. I bought mine new for £161. cheaper than the 3770k and better for graphics and general speed. Boot into windows from off 2.5seconds
