Recommended Posts

3770k if it's an even swap and/or if you do heavily threaded tasks (like rendering).

I said 3770k because you said you were lacking in computing power.  For computing power i7 > i5 (of similar vintage).

A 3770k is LGA 1155, 4670k is LGA 1150. They won't match, it's better to get a 4790k, you'll save a lot of money

Presumably someone wants to swap with him

If someone were to swap with him, then I'd get the 3770k simply because it has more threads. However, if you're BUYING, even a used CPU + motherboard combo. It would still be beneficial to get the 4790k, simply because it's at one of its lowest prices.

Thank you! I live in Poland so the pricing is a bit different/delayed than what you have elsewhere.

3770K is about 900-950PLN. (215-230 USD)
While 4790K is about 1200-1300PLN (290-315 PLN) + 200-300PLN for new one
Both used

While I'm able to now switch 4670K for 3770K.

+Motherboards with SLI are quite expensive for 4790K.
