Re: Looking for an opinion on a choice of processors.
Still pointless and really no attitude. You want peoples opinions on those cpu's then leave it at all. Don't include alienware, overpriced, dont care still getting, etc. Simply saying your tasks will be gaming, movies, photoshop is pretty generic. Pretty much any I5 these days can do that. In fact many I3's can do all that even.
Gaming seems like its your biggest task and that is going to depend on the rest of the hardware like BULLY mentioned and the level of games that you intend to play. Games on the market currently you should be fine with no problem cpu wise. The upgrade later of it like BULLY mentioned as well would be a good option especially since you have done your own builds before. That way you could look for a different cpu instead of the i7 4770 as it clearly lacks the performance gains to its price over the i5.
