    Ok, I switched out the processor for the Intel Core i5-4570T. The 4570T is at 2.9 Ghz compared to the 4570's 3.2 Ghz for the same price. But they can both overclock to 3.6 Ghz and the 4570T includes hyper threading.

    However, it has only 4mb of L3 Cache compared to the 4570's 6mb Cache, is the hyper threading worth it?

    8 threads helps, locked CPUs can't overclock.

    I meant it can get up to 3.6 Ghz max.

    Could do [URL="http://pcpartpicker.com/p/12aXw"]this for $787.[/URL] Its AMD but it comes with a 7950 and you can upgrade the CPU later.
