Just look at unbias gaming benchmarks, like from linustechtips and razetheworld on youtube
The fact that the amd is 8 core might give is some advantage in the future but that is hard to tell, as all we know is that the next gen consoles are 8 core and 8 core is the future. But still, if you invest into 8 core now, you might need to upgrade that cpu in the years to come as faster 8 cores come around.

Try running games with terrible multicore support, such as Starcraft 2 (dual core only), or Cities XL, which only supports single-core even with three years of patches and DLCs.

Now run Crysis 3.

To say that they're neck-to-neck is questionable. They're only neck-to-neck when games like Crysis 3 use all of the cores. For games that just use one, two, or maybe three cores, the i5 wins.

The results vary a lot. Sometimes the amd wins by alot and sometimes intel. most cases they are still quite neck to neck. But it's true that for example crysis 3 runs much better on amd just because of the 8 cores.

The answer for which is more futureproof atm is hard to answer, no one can tell how much time will it take for game devs to really use all 8 cores properly on the consoles, which would mean that 8 core PCs would truly outperform 4 cores.

Dude, WTH are you smoking? The GTX480 is already MILES ahead of GTX650 Ti.

GTX480 is on pair with a GTX570, which makes it just 7 % behind a HD7870, 7% ahead of HD7850.

GTX650 Ti is just equal to GTX560 1 Gb or HD6850, nothing more...

Yes, I was smoking. I was actually talking about GTX 650 Ti Boost and not GTX 650 Ti. I forgot to put the "Boost". redface.gif

Makes no difference "boost" or not - GTX650 Ti is a modern day replacement for GTS450/GTX550 Ti, and thus, is a no better card than a GTX460 or HD6850. HD6870 or GTX560 Ti are significantly better cards than GTX650 Ti.

The best future proof video card is the one with the biggest memory bandwidth. SLI 8800GTX users had no need to replace their system until the appearance of a single GTX480, that is what future proof means.

GTX 650 Ti is a common unbalanced almost a POS card - lots of shaders, not much memory bandwidth, and not much pixel fillrate..

Anything below GTX670/HD7950 is wasted money for future gaming..

I would go with the LGA 2011 as it is the best future proof,1-Six cores (after some time it will be the standard) 2-there is a rumor about an 8-core LGA 2011 CPU, or the best option is wait for the new LGA 2011 mobos x89 or x99 or for the LGA 1150 Z87 which will be available in June!

But LGA 1150 will be mainstream/high-end and will not compete with enthusiant grade LGA 2011.

Anyone still owning an LGA 1366 system like me are still very much future proof performance wise even with quad core and not hexacore Core i7 processors and probably will be so even for the next 5 years. Seeing as Intel improves performance with every new generation since Nehalem just by 5 to 7 % in real life applications, things are looking good for us.

Considering next-gen consoles, i say the stuff you posted wont endure until 2018. If you want something which you want to use for 5 years without any changing, buy a console. Otherwise say hello to new graphic card, good or best possible air cooling for 1-2 years, and then water cooling to overclock more.

Any of those three cpus will be safe for the next 5 years.
Its actually the HD7970 that might hold you back.


Phenom II and Core2Quad cpus were released 4-5 years ago (2008-2009)
and yet any 3 Ghz phenom or C2Q with an HD7970 can still max out almost all games at 1080p

But if the phenom will be partnered with a gpu from the same year, like a GTX295,
you will see that it cant max games anymore because of the low vram and not supporting dx11.


I suggest you just get any of those 3 cpus, and go with a Titan or 7990

You take Intel CPU you are stuck with what you have. Go AMD you have money left to upgrade and the ability to upgrade.
