I’m looking into CPUs for my new computer, I will but a core i7 for sure but I’m having doubts about the correct generation.
I’m thinking (for the price range) between this two:
BUT one is a third generation core i7 and the other a second generation.
So far I saw that the main difference between Ivy and Sandy bridge are the Graphics Features.
So if I buy the 3770 maybe just with the integrated video will be ok.
But taking into consideration that I (maybe) will begin to work making some music for video into my Daw (Cubase 7 64bits), maybe I will need a dedicated (lets say 2GB) videocard, maybe I could use the 3820 that have more Memory Bandwidth, cache and can run more RAM (until 64GB if necessary).
If I buy the 3820 I will matched with a Asus Sabertooth X79 ( https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_X79/ )
If buy the 3770 maybe the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ( http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4153#ov )
What do you think guys?
