For casual gaming and editing then it's alright, but it's an old CPU and a mid range one from the start. Do not expect anything impressive from it.

Quad cores are going out of vogue. It works, and it's not as bad as an i3, but it's nothing to write home about.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It's certainly not ideal, but not unusable either. 

 

My office engineering PC is still on a 3570. :( It works. Sorta.

There is no "Yes or No" answer to your question without follow ups... Most importantly: What do you want it to do? (as in what will you be using your computer for [read: what games]?)

It'd perform poorly at those tasks. If I were you I'd go after a Ryzen 3 2200G. Cheaper than sealed i5 3470's, much faster than i5 3470's, can utilize DDR4 RAM(3470 can only utilize DDR3) and is an, all around, better chip. The onboard grfx will be much better as well, the 2200G is an APU so if you plan on doing a build without a GPU then the 2200G is the way to go.

i think his point was that ryzen is a better option in terms or  ddr4 support and ability to overclock, so if you can spend a bit to get a amd build it would be better 

cause you can get a ryzen 5 1600x , for less than your i5 (based on prices on amazon) , and it has base clock of 3.6 ghz, but it can be over clocked 6 cores , 12 threads

Naw, I would say they are still viable for a bargain value buy because most homes dont need anything more. People buy more then they need for their use pattern, it is human nature. I wouldnt do a blanket statement like that for a struggling family who needs a computer for their child because its been proven internet helps children if they are monitored. But for the OP's case, just slap a few extra hun's on the ole cc and go for a 4th gen intel pc for a few peso's more, the i5 desktop 4th gen are ultra cheap! Look on newegg and see for yourself OP.

Yeah if the price is right for a system using 2200G

I would suggest a 4th gen intel pc, they are ultra cheap just like the 3rd gen. Just look on newegg, they are dirt cheap!

150 what? Peso's, Rubles, Reals, Shillings, Pound, Dollar, which dollar there are a dozen countries that use the dollar for their own currency, CDN, AUS, NZ, some African countries, some other countries. The exchange rate can vary, from as little as 33% to 333%

Is that a statement, or a question? Or just a pile of random words, it's really hard to tell.

Is the i7 3770k good for gaming and video editing stuff like that 

And is it.. worth to upgrade from a i5 3470 to a i7 3770k

I have the non K version and a gtx 1070 and it does really well with gaming. However, I don't think it will be much of an upgrade over what you have.  Maybe in the editing dept. as I have never had to do any of that but gaming wise it will be a very slight boost.  The other thing is that the i7 3770 is the best CPU you can get for that socket motherboard.  If you found one really, really cheap and have the money, hey, why not?  However, if it were me, because I'm usually broke lol, I would just hang on to what I had and start saving for a whole new build.  Because to go any higher in performance means a new motherboard, which means new memory, etc. Here is a comparison of the two cpu's.

It is decent, it's definitely an upgrade from a i5 3470. I would say it would be a worthwhile upgrade if the i7 <$80.

Do you overclock your cpu's?  Because if not you can just get the non k version and probably save a little.  You can also still bump up the multiplier in the bios for a slight oc.  I have mine running at 3.9.

 

I also found this video.... you can see there isn't that much of a difference in FPS between the two.....   LOL i just noticed that is the i5 3570, sorry...... so it will be just a hair slower than this comparison vid.

3770k is a good CPU, but note that even with a 4.7ghz overclock it only has a Cinebench r15 score of about 800cb. That's just over half that of the Ryzen 5 2600's 1400cb score at 4.2GHz and you can get that CPU with mobo and decent 16gb memory for about $400 new. Therefore only consider the 3770k if you have what it takes to overclock AND can get one cheaply (below $100).

Short answer:

Will it do what you are asking? Yes.

Are there other options that will do those tasks better? Yes.

Is it a good deal for $150(USD?)? If it is an upgrade to your current setup, absolutely.

There are a lot of options out there and any number of routes you could take to game/edit video. Depending on your time frame, budget, immediate and future needs, and experience level could get a better setup. Ultimately though only you can say whether that investment is more or less worth it than this.

Agreed, at that point he hadn't informed us he was purchasing a whole system for 150.

Think you can stomach paying $340 for a full fledged system that will whip the 150$ in every way?
