mind yet if I want to pay more and put up with the louder noise). Would that count as lower resolution?
Get an i5 2500K and crank up the clocks. Unless you are running uber video card, the 4 thread i5 is unlikely to be a bottleneck in most games. Look at TR's review of Sandy Bridge, most gaming results were so close for the i5 vs i7 as to be within the margin of error. If you are going to use the PC for other stuff as well, 8 threads might be a benefit, but gaming, well it's not much of a benefit. here's an example:TLDR, unless you're running two 7950s in CrossFire, an overclocked I5 2500K is plenty capable, at least at higher screen resolutions no doubt the i7 4770k would show more of a lead at lower resolutions. IMO if you're not paying more for the graphics card than the CPU, you're probably buying too much CPU for a gaming rig.
How safe is it buying used? Computer parts seem like something that would be risky, as I might have something that has been badly overclocked in past, there would be no warranty, etc.
What do you mean by lower resolution? I'm looking at a 24", 1920 x 1200 monitor with either a R9 270X or a R9 280X (I haven't made up my Nike Windrunner Jacket Gold
True enough, I didn't really check the prices, on getting your hands on a Sandy part, myself I'd lean more towards getting something like the i5 3570K for 250$, since I'm not much of an OCer any more, the lack of headroom on post Sandy Bridge parts would be less of a concern.
4670 if the total cost is the same

The hitch I've encountered is that the motherboard I scored at the meetup is a Gigabyte PV67A UD4, which doesn't support anything newer then Sandy Bridge. So I looked into buying a ASUS Z87 A after poking around in the Christmas guide, which costs me $145 on NewEgg (Damn Canadian prices). Coupled with that, plus the fact I'd rather not overclock is leading me towards the i5 4670, again, based on the Christmas guide. Then I noticed that the i7 2600K has almost the same performance as the i7 3770K, which is only a tiny bit under the i7 4770K, and the i7 2600K will work with the motherboard I already have.
Fair point, though most of the i5 2500K I can find are Nike Pullover Hoodie White only marginally cheaper then the i7 2600K. This one is so I've put in a bid. If the price goes too high then I might as well get the other processor, since why not.
So, am I crazy for considering buying a chip from 2011 so I can use the motherboard that I got for free? Should I just toss it on Craigs list or ebay and buy the ASUS Z87 A? Heck, am I even looking at CPUs in the right power range for some moderate non twitch gaming? I mean, anything is going to be better then my current T510 ThinkPad.

That is an interesting idea, and those used i7 2600K are tempting. So you recommend the 2600K? I could always buy one now, then get the aftermarket cooler and start overclocking later when I have some more money.
Or the i5 as stated above if you're going with an after market cooler and OC'ing.
Anyway I would go with 8 threads over 4 even if the i7 CPU's are Hyper Threaded cores. Also the Sandy Bridge CPUs are much easier to keep cool. Just pop a 30 35$ Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO Tower Air cooler on it and call it a day.
I don't want to overclock; I'm a fairly cautious person and don't trust myself not to damage the machine, as I'm just starting out. Plus you could just use Turbo mode and set all 4 cores to 4 ghz and leave everything else alone.
So back in September I got some hardware at the Techreport North meetup, and intended to use it to build my first gaming computer. Now a combination of being busy and lack of funds has kept me from actually progressing on this until now. However, with my Christmas bills out of the way, and Boxing day coming up, I was thinking now would be a good time to start building this thing. I've decided to get something partway between the Editor's Choice and The Sweet Spot.

Once you realize how safe it is Overclocking Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPU's you will end up at 4.5+ ghz like most of us here.
