I've started making a list for a new build I'm doing, since my current desktop is starting to get some problems. But getting to the CPU, I'm really split about the choice of CPU. I've decided that I'm most likely gonna go with an Intel core I7, but I can't decide if I should go with the 10th or 11th gen, and I also can't decide if I should go with the K or KF model. As far as I understand the only diffrence between K and KF is that K has integrated Graphics and KF doesn't, but then KF is slightly cheaper.
Is it just a waste of money to buy K instead of KF since the build will include a GPU? And is the difference between 10th and 11th gen, enough to make up the difference in price?
The choices are between:
- Intel core I7-11700K
- Intel core I7-11700KF
- Intel core I7-10700K
- Intel core I7-10700KF
For context, the rest of the build looks something like this:
- MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus
- Asus GeForce RTX 3080 TI TUF OC
- Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3600 C18 2x16GB
- Samsung 980 PRO SSD 1TB
- (A 1000Watt power supply, atleast 80+ gold certified)
I mostly use my desktop for gaming, but from time to time, I also do some video editing and rendering, 3D modeling, some programming, and VR gaming.
I have all these parts available at my local shop so that isn't a problem, but would also love to hear peoples suggestions. All input is greatly appreciated, I'd love to learn something new, Thx
