I'm stuck choosing between an i5 3570K and an i7 3770K. Which would be the best choice? The price difference between the two of them is around 100$, is the hyperthreading really worth it?
Would the i5 be enough for streaming at let's say 720p and also recording my stream (I plan on using dxtory)?
I don't know what to pick honestly, as I want the quality to be very good.
My other system specs are: ASRock Z77-ITX (I am doing an mini ITX build), 8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance, HD7850 2GB (should be enough for 1080p gaming), Samsung 128GB SSD + WD 2TB HDD
So far I have tried streaming on my laptop, which is a i5-2410M (2 cores, HT 4 threads) & GT540m. I barely managed to get 720p but I had frame drops, I've noticed that xsplit cannot use hyperthreading properly, so that's why I'm on the fritz about the i7.
