What hasbeen done to the cards? If the bios has been modded, or if you are into that, try to ask gupsterg for a low VRM frequency bios. It can help a ton.

Serious question: If you guys already bought a 6700k setup 8 months ago but, you have not really gamed all that much on it, even with a 980 Ti, would you sell it and pick up a cheaper setup with an FX 8300 to use for a couple of years? I am looking at selling the setup for about $575 and getting a FX setup again for $269 but I am not 100% sure. To be honest, my work computer is an FX 8350 with a R9 380 and 32GB of ram and I spent twice as much time on that as I do on my 6700k home setup.

What do you guys think? I figure with an MSI 970 Gaming, I can overclock to 4.5GHz on that 8300 with 16GB of 1866 HyperX ram and do pretty much what I can already do at 4k. I have only bought one new PC game this year and that was the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. I have been mostly gaming on my XBox One on my 50 Inch Sony 1080p TV anyways.

I will keep the 980 Ti though.

Will you game at 1080p or 4K?

1080P will benefit more from a 6700K and a 980TI will be a hoot with the i7 it.

4K the FX will do just fine but you will need all the GPU power you can muster. 2 980TIs maybe? Especially now that they are cheaper.

Pick a proper board if you want the FX to last for years. Other words, you will need to overclock it past 4.7 to be competitive in today's games and those that will come.

I wouldn't really delve into the FX now that Zen is coming.

Although I do agree with you, I do rather regret spending the money on high end gaming PC upgrades when I did not need too. I think I have gamed on my PC about 4 hours in the last 8 months and half of that was at work well on a break. I game considerably more on my XBox One and recently bought Rise of the Tomb Raider because I enjoyed the demo so much. I even bought COD: Advanced Warfare on my One but have not gotten around to it yet.

Sure why not. I game on my 9370 all the time with a pair of 770s or whatever I throw in at the time if I need the 770s for another task. It's only in some games that the FX really lacks. One thing though I'd substitute the 970 gaming for the 970 Pro Aura from ASUS I reveiwed one of those recently and it's quite capable It's and extra $20 but I think it's worth it.

I find quite funny when people says FX chips are HOT, ou draw too much power... Intel six core ones are about the same, or worst once overclocked !

I do have a aftermarket cooler, ultra cheap TermalRight Ultra 120, and stock my CPU never break the 45ºc mark, even with IntelBurnInTest..

In my opinion the higher clocked (4Ghz+) 4M 8T AMD chips have very good performance in modern 1080p+ game engines and, in my case, even in older ones.

I play DOOM, Crysis3, Wolfenstein New Order, Old Blood, Dead Island 2, FarCry Blood Dragon, all in 1080p, most maxed quality settigns in one '4 year old' garbage computer as introls say. In all the games the limit factor of my system is, always, the R9 280X O.C. I could run a much stronger GPU with no problems.

I never had a computer that aged so well like the FX chips. Almost four years running my RIG and still kick ass in all games i run and buy.
