I need a budget build - Page 2

post #11 of 17

Wow i got many great recommendations! eek.gif

For some Reason I was under the impression that the i3-7 line were better at video rendering stuff. Or is it more of a difference of a hair?

or was i completely wrong?

I will consult further with my friend about the prices since a few go slightly over before the rebate by a little tongue.gif

well no you aren't wrong. technically, the 2600K would be better than the FX-8 Core for rendering but its $280 at microcenter where you can get a 8150 for $250.

I personally, could not recommend you a 2600K since it would kill over half of your budget. And it would not make the build feasible unless you bought used parts.

The I3 and A8 3870 are almost the same for video encoding , for the budget, with either one slightly higher depending on the bench that is viewed. Exception is, the A8 is higher for gaming making it the better choice. Im not an AMD fanboy, if you see my 2600k sig rig. I own the A8 and i can say from a non bias opinion. its a far better choice for budget then the I3 IMO. The op should at least get both sides and not just an Intel side since he said he didn't care if it was AMD or Intel. Also since he said the budget was $500, I would suggest not going FX, or 2500/2600k becasue all other hardware would be garbage to keep it in budget.

The APU'S are paired with other AMD 6xxx series cards, but only certain ones to match on the APU graphics,, the 6670, 6650 and some other ones, the best thing is those card cheap. I one that gets the best results and most people including myself use are the 6670. You should really read up on them there a true Quad core chip. The I3 wins slightly in the CPU department but loses badly in the onboard GPU department, that's where the 3870 really shines, the onboard alone can handle mostly anything but when you pair it becomes impressive for the price. Like I said I use a 2600k and got the A8 for the family and folding and wasn't expecting it to perform as well as it does. So you can get an APU for cheap and pair it a $60 video card and get AWESOME performance on a budget that you can't do with other setups.

This one is my kid on the A8, and as you can see there's no lag, and a lot of systems that cost more $$ can't run this game well..

this might answer you questions
553
you can crossfire the A8 and the A6 series with the 6670 at max over that you have the run a single card which is a waste redface.gif
Hope that answered your question thumb.gif
