Windows 7: i7-4770R vs i5-4470R vs A8-7600 vs A10-7850K? (moderate gaming)

i7-4770R vs i5-4470R vs A8-7600 vs A10-7850K? (moderate gaming)

With these processors finally coming out, I was wondering if anyone can guess how these would work for moderate gaming? Bioshock Infinity would be the most demanding game I have, with most being Portal level games I got for dirt cheap on Steam. I'm aware that integrated graphics will never compete with a decent discrete video card, but i'll be happy if it can just maintain a smooth framerate at a decent resolution.

I still want to build a really compact system, and I am considering the Gigabyte Brix. But what I'm wondering is if the higher level versions of the chip would be required, or if the Intel chip's graphical capabilities warrant their higher prices?

Thanks for your two cents.

Why would you bother with an i7 4770R or an i5 4470R? They're both slower than i7-4770k and i5-4470k and much expensive than the i7-4770K and i5-4470K. The graphics on the A10-7850K is good enough to run Portal level games on maximum resolution but with a bit of lowering the settings.

Intel are just sand bagging on the desktop CPU front, the difference between sandy bridge, ivy bridge and haswell is seemingly very small. A slight increase in clock speeds is about all theyve gone for, but the newer generations dont tend to overclock as well, so if you own a sandy bridge cpu youre quids in for a fair while on the gaming front.

Intel will pull out some 6 core and 8 core chips (which they currently use on their server side of things) when AMD finally manage to release their next gen APU chips that they claim will piddle all over intels mid level current gen chips

I'm just days away from completing my mini-ITX build. Using a crazy ASUS Z77 mono and the 3570k i5 chip and 16gb 2400 MHz ram. This to my logic will over clock much better than Haswell for much less money. With the savings you can consider that GPU to really push up your frame rates.

I still really haven't made up my mind. All I know is that I want a fairly small gaming system that can play all of my games without depending on streaming from another computer.

Overall I have a few different options that I just can't decide between:
1. A Gigabyte BRIX with an i5-4570R
2. Gigabyte has also hinted at versions of the Brix that has a embedded GPU up to a Nvidia 880m
3. A short Mini ITX case that holds an AMD A8-7600 (or the A10-7850k if the case can support that wattage)
4. Asus and MSI both have Nvidia 760 gpus on a 7.5" long board, which allows for a case about the size of a fat PS3

Would the BitFenix Prodigy be too large a case?

Probably not, but at the moment I have my heart set on a short (less than 4" tall) case that will fit into an av rack.
