Intel Core i5-7600K VS Intel Core i5-7640X - Which is a better buy ?
Im Looking at both for a desktop PC. To be used for some gaming, work (virtualization, GNS etc) and casual PC.
I understand the 7640X does not have graphic capabilities however i have a good graphics card, does this present an issue.
Also the 7640X is the latest LGA 2066 / x299 Socket, so i should be good with a processor and board of this type for a while.
The 7660K has recieved good reviews and is recommended for high graphic applications, however comes with the older LGA 1151 Socket.
They are around the same price which would you recommend?
Here is a comparison of the two processors: Intel® Product Specification Comparison
Personally, whichever one you choose, keep your graphics card (or get a new one). You will save your self a lot of time and frustration in the future. Better said, do not base your decision on Intel graphics
