Best processor for me? (Overclocking) 2500k or 3570k? - Page 4

And that 8350 actually does use ~ 200 watts lol tongue.gif
So for 4 years of nonstop 100% usage you'll break even using a 8350 vs a 3770k.
It would really help if we knew what the OP's use for this would be though, if he isn't using lots of threads then yes, he should probably go Intel.


Basically all gaming, maybe a few videos in Vegas for school, like a few a year.

True. That overlooked me, I don't look much into APUs because I have a discrete graphics card but I heard they are pretty good.

Definitely agree with the microcenter deals though. It's too hard to pass by.

3570k is the only one to look at then.

I'm not an AMD fanboy, in fact if I had the money I wouldn't consider buying from them, but it's disheartening and frustrating to casually dismiss products for reasons that they don't understand while making blanket statements that are clearly uninformed.
As for vishera being faster, benches are showing that in overclocked performance vishera and sandy bridge are very close, yet vishera is cheaper.
No AMD does not compete with Intel's i7s. Yes they use more power for comparable products. However, they are significantly cheaper, than Intel's products, while still offering good, and in some cases excellent performance. To call them a waste of money is sensationalist and untrue.

Exactly, when I built my machine, it was either get an intel processor, and a horrid graphics card, or get a 965, overclock a bit if i need to (dont even really need to yet, but I do), but get a pretty good card ( my 570 ). For gaming, I see AMD as a perfect fit, more specifically, the Phenom lineup. Yeah, they are 45nm, use older tech, runs only up to 1333 DDR3 Dimms, and are '125watts', and are from 2009...but when you get a true quad core at 3.8ghz+ with a higher-mid graphics card or better, I don't think there will be much of a difference. I am looking to upgrade to intel, because I hear they are fun to overclock, as in they can get fairly high clocks compared to my phenom, and preform a lot better. Will that really come into play? Maybe, but either way, my 965 is showing it's age, and AMD has not really given me a reason to stay with them, bulldozer was a mess, most of the things i do would be single threaded, and at the most, games support 4 threads anyways, and for the next few years it should stay like that. The only logical upgrade is at least a sandy bridge, or for a little bit more, an ivy.

Im putting better cooler on my i5 760 " My HTPC " which i paid 140 $ for Cpu Mb and ram.. Going to OC to 4.2ghz and going to throw a Gtx 560 ti i have in the closet and watch it out perform the 8350 in every game besides Bf3...

Wheeeeeeeeeeeee....... biggrin.gif

i hope you don't use too much thermal paste like you clearly did last time why is it all over the place and make sure you clean off the old thermal paste off good its all over the place use alcohol and a peice of toilet paper to clean that off wow. You only need a pee shaped size of thermal paste applied to the center of the cpu and when you install the heatsink that will spread it out on its on automatically.
