    read through various bf4 threads, a lot of HT guys are disabling it.

    4670k is way better than fx besdies heavily multithreaded games, BF4 is one of them. i would get i5 or i7 over any AMD cpu.

    I don't disagree with you, overall the 4670 is def the better and more expensive CPU in lightly/single threaded/old apps....
    Which is fine and I would totally recommend it - if the OP tells us price doesn't matter I just want the best.

    However it seems the OP is only upgrading for BF4, a game in which Vishera excels in...... other than that he is happy with his 965.

    So with this in mind what justification is there for him to spend extra cash on a CPU he doesn't need. Obviously the 83xx will do anything his aging X4 can do plus it runs BF4 awesomely....

    I don't know about you but I try and look at things from a bang for buck perspective....

    I even would have said the 35/3770 but I think it's still quite expemnsive.....


    Yeah I have, guess it just depends on where the threads are etc...
