why do you come to every amd cpu discussion to poop on other peoples posts.

I have no idea how much money he spent with his rig. my lowly i3 2120 during that time that was made with cheaped out parts was outperforming his system(my i3 never goes below 60fps the whole game). sad really. t

I just can't stand these amd zealots preching their amd love with members that are asking for gaming builds. you never see me goign to the amd section and talking smack there. I know a lot members here are amd fans and I don't blame them. I just can't ignore builds that are being flooded by these amd boys spreading false info. the intel owners seems like doesn't even care(only a few people bother replying with threads like these) I do realize maybe I'm not doing the right thing. one of these days I'd just ignore threads like these tbh. im doing this for the benefit of the OP and nothing else

It would take AMD a few generations to catch up to the "gaming performance" an i5 2500k @ 4.5ghz+ would give.

Yeah definitely. But if you have the money for a gtx670 and buy a low cpu you broke the balance of your system. Its like i get a 3770k with a 40 euro mobo. But the point here is. I have 2 system one here and one in my work. In my house i have a 965 be and in my work a 3820 I am 3d designer so i needed it. The programs that use over 4 cores( or maybe even 2 cores) are so few.

there's a perfectly logical reason why I got a gtx 670. my 470 died at that time. was gonna buy something like a 7850/7870 to fill the void. found out you just need to add more to get a gtx 660, one thing lead to another and I ended up with a gtx 670(I ultimately decided I could afford it anyway. the money I would've saved with a cheaper card would've been spent with something anyway). shows how pc enthusiasts think when they decide to buy hardware lol

edit:

you're not one to talk. you have a phenom II x4 with a monster 7970 with a great overclock tongue.gif hehehe. I actually had a phenom II x4 955 with my gtx 670 at first (it was a c2 though with an am2+ board and ddr2 mems) sold it to get a i3 2120 mostly for warranty purposes. I didn't want anything from that system to die in my hands with zero warranty left

I would buy that 7870. More fun to play than kepler lol

please do ignore these threads from now on. for the benefit of OCN please stop.

i would like proof that a 2120 + 470 combo can handle dota2 better than an 8150 + 7950 combo pls. or just stop posting misinformation.

EDIT: it looks like they have similar gaming performance.

Since vishera is a marginal percent better than the 8150 was, It seems like AMD has learned from their mistakes and are getting better. My primary question is, is it worth it to get a 8350 crank it to 5ghz to match or beat a i5 3570k by a little, and upgrade to Steamroller when it comes out (saving money on a mobo in the future) or get a i5 3570k, and upgrade my mobo and CPU when 2013 chips come out for intel? I'll be running a GTX 680 2gb with it, 8 gigs of ram, and a SSD (to give you a little idea of what my rig will be). Thanks ahead of time.

Well, to provide a proper and incontestable answer to your question... you may see better performance with the 8350 when you are in a multitasking scenario (i.e. transcoding video while gaming, unzipping a RAR file while gaming, etc etc). This decision is going to depend on your needs. Consider your own. There's a lot to read above and I find myself worrying that you're going to come here and find a long thread full of nothing that actually matters to you.

 

jprovido, just stop. I don't think the proof you're trying to state here would be valid unless your FX-8150 friend is using the same monitor size and playing with the same settings, none of which we know. So your argument may just get us nowhere.

Its easy. 2 thread game. IPS is definitely higher on 2120 combo. Its not even gpu bound game.

the gtx 670 purchase was one of the most regretful purchases I ever had. bought it for 15,900Php. after 3-4 days 7970's suddenly got a huge price drop and was actually cheapper than the gtx 670 about 15,400Php. I was slamming my head on the wall. then a couple of months later the 12.11 drivers came out. AMD sure slapped me around and made me regret for going nvidia biggrin.gif

There is so much fail in this it's hard to stomach.
