    Default Cpu/mobo bundle

    Hey there, back from my vacation with another few questions for you guys.

    I've been thinking about my new build and since i don't value HT at what Intel values it i seem to have thought of a way to get it in, i'd like to know if my thinking is flawed though :P

    For a 3-4 year longevity what do you think it's best:

    gigabyte z77x ud3h + i5 3570k

    or

    a general mobo + i7 3770 non k

    The prices would be the same if i choose a non-oc motherboard to go with the locked i7. Which one of those options do you think would hold better in the future? I originally wanted a 4,5 OC from the i5, only air so i wouldn't've pushed it so hard. Would HT be a better option to a 700/800 MHz boost on the i5?

    Eagerly waiting for some answers, thank you. You could tell me a few motherboards for the non-k i7 aswell ( Gigabyte/Asus/Asrock/Msi being surely available where i live).

    LE: i managed to do all i needed to with an e6300 so any of them would mean a huge upgrade, i just don't know which one would be more "futureproff" :P

    Nobody ? What would you do? The 3770k is 180$ more expensive than the 3570k ( that's why i steered away form HT) while the 3770 is half that...

    THe MSI Z77 is a good board. I have the Z77-GD65 which is almost the same as the GD55 and it runs good during my bench test. I am still working on my build with the GD65 but if you look at our review here both GD55 and 65 boards performed really good..
    If HT is not a big deal I would go for the 3570k. The unlocked CPU gives you better advantage if in case later down the line you decide to OC

    The gigabyte is a good board also..
