oo well i guess im going intel then.

That's not to say that the 8350 is a bad CPU per say. It kills a 3570k in heavily threaded such, such as video editing. It also has a better upgrade path then Intel seeing as AMD is staying with socket AM3+ for a little while longer. 1155 is dead when Haswell comes out. And the game performance is not bad either, maybe a few frames under the 3570k. If the rig is just for gaming, go Intel. If it's for heavily threaded applications and gaming, go AMD. I just have a problem with Logan's benchmarks since he's teh only one claiming these numbers and no one else has. Seems like something would have come out sooner

judging by how much of a price drop sandy bridge got I dought it would be worth my while. And why not get Haswell you saying ivy is better?
post #16 of 21
no one can say that, they havnt released haswell yet to test. im sure haswell will be better, and most likely run cooler by fixing their mistake with ivy bridge.a 3570k will still run all the games just fine, for the next five years by my guess, i got to 4.4ghz no problem idleing with an H80 stock fans at 1c above room temp

Hey OP, A lot of us have our own opinions and sanarios, but i'll give you my voice on it all.

First, what is you're budget, roughly?

If you're going to do a gaming rig, buy either a sandy bridge Processor, or an ivy bridge processor. Either-or would really work here. If you dont want to really overclock the processor, go with the sandy, as its cheaper, and even if you wanted to overclock in the next 3-4 years, it will allow you to do so up to 4.5ghz, from the base clock of 3.4ghz . i've seen some here on OCN go past that. The sandy bridge will run you around 230 USD. and the ivy around 320 or 290 at micro center.

BUILD YOUR RIG AROUND THE GRAPHICS CARD. didn't do this with my first build, and my performance suffered. AMD is the way to go this year. the 8000 series are rebranded 7000 series cards. The 7870s are a great GPU, and i am considering one myself, and around 260 dollars before taxes. the 7950's are around 330-350 and will handle its own against satan, imo. If you're a fan of crysis 3, and from my own discussions with other members, the 7870 can run crysis 3 on ultra, with x2 AA? the 7950 can run it with x4.

Sandy Bridge price drop? On Ivy Bridge introduction and long after, retail prices were almost identical clock for clock.
Haswell will run at the same clocks, come with a much stronger integrated GPU (which you wont use) and some architecture improvements which should give anything between 0-10% gain clock for clock depending on software used. Not much of a difference. Then of course you're jumping on a completely new platform, and it may take a while for the really nice stuff (motherboards) to show up. Anybody remember the early Z77 chipset sata bug?

So anyhow, yours is a gaming build which means you need the best GPU you can afford (GTX670 or HD7950 minimum) and a nice monitor (24"+). Start with that, and plan the rest of your budget around it. Not the other way around.
MicroATX will be cheaper (mobo+case) and every bit as powerful as full ATX, but not so good for multi-gpu setups. One of the less expensive Z77 boards, and an i5 and you're good to go. Remember to get an aftermarket cooler if you want to OC (Coolermaster 212 / 412 or Scythe Mugen are particularily good value where I live, but your choice may be different).
You should also be able to fit a 128GB SSD in your budget, but if not - add that later on. No new build should come without a SSD imo :-)

my budget is 1250 for rig monitor mouse keybord windows. And I got $75 to best buy I also wanted a nvida card for their physx engine
post #20 of 21
I would suggust either a 670 or a 680 for your GPU then. Gigabyte and ASUS do some damn good cards. I would also suggust to buy your mouse and keyboard at best buy, or if you could find some 1600 or 1866 DDR3 RAM at best buy, then go ahead and do that.

pricy right up front, yes, but this card will KILL anything you throw at it, alot of power. if you wish, you can also look around for anything that you might find more pleasing to the eye.

I cannot help you with monitors, as i am not very skilled in them.
