Is it worth paying more for 4770K over 4660K ?

Recommended Posts

With regard to performance in FSX I have heard that there are no point in getting 3770K over 3570K. Does this also apply for haswell as well.

I'm asking since I plan to build a total new system for FSX in the first hand since my current system is not quite up to the task. I see that

only picking the most powerful components results in price running away too high.

Depends on if you overclock and how important sharp scenery textures are.  If you overclock, usually the higher bin CPU SKUs will overclock a bit higher because often times Intel will use "broken" CPUs (i.e. those that can't have all features enabled e.g. HyperThreading) as lower bin parts or "salvage" SKUs so they don't just have to throw these away.  Usually the difference is minor, perhaps 100-200MHz, sometimes no difference at all.  Also, if you do have HyperThreading you can have more T&T loaders which provides for sharper/faster scenery texture loading.
