It sounds more as though you just like to spend money ;-)

The biggest difference between the Core i7 and the Core i5, is that the Core i7 uses Hyper-Threading.

The Core i5, does not. But both have 4 physical cores.

If you go and look up reviews and benchmarks you will see that the places where this comes into play are graphical rendering which they run on the CPU for the sake of comparison, however in the real world, no one uses the CPU to render 3d Graphics... they offload the work to the GPU which is MUCH MUCH faster, which makes this a pointless benchmark.

The other place where the Core i7 will win out is when using an encoder that is optimized for multiple cores. And even then, now you are comparing it takes 1 minute to complete vs 1 minute and 10 seconds to encode about an hours worth of HD video...

And then finally compression. Which not many people use... the time differences are similar to encoding...

If you compare gaming benchmarks in which they use a dedicated graphics card... you will notice that the framerate will be identical 90% of the time, and that other 10% will be 1 or 2 FPS faster with EITHER cpu.

So you will have to ask yourself... is it worth spending an extra $100 to save yourself 10 seconds on the occasional video encoding?

I personally don't even remember the last time I encoded a video.

Here :P http://www.pcmag.com/art...e2/0,2817,2404674,00.asp

Also, I am a nerd, so I make videos, occasionally attempt to record(It doesn't work) and I encode(Also doesn't work)/upload videos. It all kind of depends on what matt wants to do with his PC :P

That article is garbage... They just make a bunch of generalized statements and provide no evidence to back up their claims.

Read this review that directly compares the Core i5 6600k to the Core i7 6700k. It also include benchmarks using discrete graphics so you can see evidence of what i've been saying all along:

and another, but without discrete graphics comparisons:

Yay I'm champion again! Lol

I've been working in the IT industry for about 12 years, and I've been obsessed with computers for a lot longer than that! I know way more about this stuff than I should!

Very true.

On a side not, this game looks good, any idea if it comes out on XB360? It is the only platform I can run it on. It seems like a good concept, and I may enjoy it. Will have to see eh?

it's relevant to gaming and this game specifically :-D

You need a better gaming PC or an X-Box One!
