I was given help by a friend, I wasn't sure about taking either the I5 4590 or I5 4690, is there any difference? I am not going to overclock if that matters, do they also fit in the same motherboard?
This is what I am about to buy:
CPU: Intel Core i5 4690 3.5Ghz 6MB L3 Cache s1150 - Tray OR Intel Core i5 4590 3.5Ghz 6MB L3 Cache s1150 - Tray
CPU cooler: Arctic Alpine 11 Pro Rev.2 CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H97M-D3H LGA1150, Intel H97, DDR3 1600, 2xPCI-E,VGA, DVI, HDMI
Memory: G.Skill 2x4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ares Dual Channel CL9-9-9
GPU: MSI GTX970 Gaming 4GB OC GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI DP PCI-E
Drivers: Seagate 2TB Barracuda Sata III ST2000DM001 -- Crucial BX100 CT250BX100SSD1 250GB SSD SATA III
Disc drive: Samsung SH-224DB DVD±RW x24 Black Sata
PSU: Antec 550W Active PFC 80+ VP550P PSU
The box itself: Antec GX500 Window Black Steel Case No PSU
I've read that the only difference between the 4590 and the 4690 are like 200mhz or something, I don't understand much, is it worth the 25$?
Sorry for the noob question
