Before anyone reads below, I do not want an 8 core AMD processor. Please do not suggest it :P
Right now I have a 3570k and it's not only a horrible bin(20C range at stock idling and 100%), but it's not powerful enough, even at 4.6GHz.
I'm contemplating getting a 3770K, but my motherboard is a really cheap Asus board(Saw it recently for 80 bucks on sale), so I was also considering getting the 4770K and a new motherboard, since my laptop has the 4600 processor and it is fast as fuuuuuck.
Anyone got any suggestions? I'm pretty much dead set on the 3770k right now but who knows, it might be worth the hardware bump since I could just drop in a broadwell processor next year or whatever, and my budget is currently endless, so Ivy Bridge E is also a possibility but I'm not too sure I need that much power...
