Its usually the next working day after you order that your order clock starts so if you ordered on Tuesday then Wednesday would have been the first day.

If you've ordered by finance it sometimes takes a little longer to get going as the finance company has to sort out things before anything starts really.

Oh ok thank you, any feedback about my build or should i be all good especially in terms of power supply when i add the new parts as mentioned? Concidering im OCing the CPU, RAM and possibly the card

Feedback depends on intended use. Do you have a budget? An M2 SSD drive will be faster than the one you selected and depending on your budget you could consider an i7

The most i will be doing on it is a flight sim called Prepar3D with 4K in game textures and hardware intense addons that take up so much computer resources it's ridiculous;) ;) go on youtube and search " [Prepar3D] AWESOME REALISM CORE I7 @ 4.6GHz GTX 960 [HD]" thats what my pc is mostly for and as you can see i dont really need the i7 as im overclocking my i5 7600k to 4.8GHz and if lucky 5.0GHz and the graphics card is already better than the one in the video.

I already ordered it but i was just wondering if a 650W power supply is good for all the parts mentioned including the ones im adding latter as well as OCing my parts?

The i7 has twice as many threads as the i5, it's not just about the clock speed. Are you sure that Prepar3D doesn't benefit from the extra threads?

Depends what you're adding, what GPU you're using. It's very likely more than enough though.

in the video I saw, it was an i7 3770k and mine is an i5 7600k and here: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-3770K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-7600K/1317vs3885

shows that my processor is way better for majority of the processor specs.

As above. Furthermore the 3770k is from 2012. You should be looking at the 7600k vs a 7700k (or a 6600k vs a 6700k) for a better comparison. And in a proper review website, not a website that claims to be a benchmark but frankly is more like a random number generator. So avoid CPUboss too.

In terms of general gaming:

2600k-revisit-tww.png 2600k-revisit-mll.png
You can see i5s more likely to drop below 60fps in WD2 (2016), while in Metro LL (2013) i5s can have more stuttery gameplay than i7s.

While WH:TW (2016) loves CPU single threaded performance, it also loves more threads.

Fallout 4 (2015) really loves more threads:

Indeed Eurogamer found the difference to be even more pronounced, saying:
FO4i5i7.png

Certainly there are very many titles where there will be little performance difference. But there are, as above, a decent number of titles already available where the extra threads are a huge benefit and this may only be more the case going forward.

TL;DR - look for actual comparisons of the i5 vs the i7 in the game/simulator you're going to run. Don't just go off bizarre synthetic benchmarks that should, frankly, be ignored by everyone.

well for the sim I'm playing I have seen people run it with the processor I have fine for first. also I doubt their is a benchmark of the sim I'm playing of a 3770k vs a 7600k. also when I was watching game benchmarks on youtube for the 3770k vs the 7600k, the games on both processors had more or less the same fps and they tested out quite a few games that were released not long ago such as rise of the tomb raider.

If you're set on the 7600k then it's your money, knock yourself out.

The 3770k was a CPU released in 2012. The 7600k was released in 2017. Comparing the two when deciding whether to buy a new system in 2017 is meaningless and bizarre - as previously explained.

The only case it makes any sense to compare one to the other is if you own a 3770k and want to know if a 7600k is worth the upgrade. To which the answer will almost always be no.

I've provided fairly detailed information on the differences between an i7 7700k (2017) and an i7 7600k (2017). Certainly they don't apply in all games, and certainly even if they did to the games/sims you're interested in you're not obligated to buy an i7 7700k :)

But I must say, comparing an i7 3770k to an i5 7600k is really not a helpful thing to do when deciding what to buy.

well I only did that because I said I had a 7600k and in the video the guy was using a 3770k and some guy had to come along and be like, do you need an i7 for more threads? but from what you said its better any way and that scrub was essentially trying to waste my money :/ thanks anyway

oh yeah and I doubt the i5 7600k matters because even though the video says i7 its a 3770k
