So far, it’s looking good. How about Lost Planet 2?

intel_corei5_4430_Lost_Planet (game)Here is the first hint that you might be giving up some gaming performance with the 4430 CPU: the 2.9 fewer frames per second you get with the 4430 represents about a 5% performance drop. But let’s throw something really tough at the system: Metro 2033!

So based on these tests, if you’re a gamer, there’s little reason to spend almost twice as much money for a Core i7-4770K CPU. I’ll present my final thoughts and conclusion in the next section.
