1ST build goin from intel to AMD . story too . maybe i will amuse . - Page 3

post #21 of 100
Even using a single that game being as old and not really strenuous a game you wont have any issue with the AMDs. And as far as the FX 8350 it does very well in multithread performance topping intels 3570k even. Single threaded intel is better. But point being I doubt seriously you would notice with that game or any task you take daily. Be careful of the benchmark nuts and go with what you like and don't be persuaded by worthless benchmarks. My FX8350 does perfectly and has yet to show me a flaw. MY crappy piece o crap MOBO is a diff story...mad.gif

Quick question, what roughly is your budget(I couldn't find it anywhere in the thread).

*edit* whoops found it, so, 200-250 I assume is your current budget?

Since your budget is down $300, and I'm normally pretty good with budget builds.

*edit* with a dedicated gpu I cannot build this at under budget(of 250), but I can get it within budget of the previous budget.(I'll attempt other builds, try to find the best price/performance.)

MSI 990FXA-GD65V2 - $125, free dual channel 1600mhz 8gb ram, worth $60. This gets you a VERY high quality board as well.

Looks good so far! thumb.gif That FX 4100 will do fine. Add a $32 CPU cooler and it'll run 24/7 stable at 4.5. Keep at it.

AMD couple of times shot them self in the foot to say at least, previous CEO was a douche and upper management was chaotic and AMD stop being the king of hill when Intel released Core 2 Duo that has roots from Pentium 3/Pentium M that from then Intel just shrinks it down with some minor tweaks and improvements and sell it for absurdly high price.

AMD would right now smacking Intel if they din't had a CEO Dirk Mayer, chaotic upper management, unreliable fabs from TSMC and Global Foundries they previously owned and then we have the Intel that started doing illegal things against AMD since 1999 to 2007 when they finally get fined. Intel offered illegal rebates to OEM's and shops to delay, cancel or stop using AMD's products and that hurt AMD alot and Intel bought Dell's loyalty so that is the reason why Dell does not have any product with AMD's component. Illegal rebates still continue in my country Croatia, its not a lie... mad.gif

Anyway here is a guideline for "bang for a buck":
AMD "Trinity" A10 5800k 130$ > Intel Ivy Bridge i3 3225 145$ (using IGP only)
AMD Piledriver - Vishera FX 4300 120$ > Intel Ivy Bridge i3 3225 145$
AMD Piledriver - Vishera FX 6300 140$ > Intel Ivy Bridge i5 3470 200$
AMD Piledriver - Vishera FX 8320 175$ > Intel Ivy Bridge i5 3470 200$
AMD Piledriver - Vishera FX 8350 190$ > Intel Ivy Bridge i5 3570k 220$

Since you have an AM3+ motherboard, by the end of this year Steamroller should be available and there is speculation that there will be 20-30% of improvements over Bulldozer/Piledriver and be in on par Ivy Bridge in single threaded performance and crush Intel in the multi threaded performance. AMD CPU's are great for multitasking, FX 8350 beats i5 3570k in the multitasking and great for all sorts of things. So its a nice you are going AMD since you won't need to buy a new motherboard each year or two for a newer generation of processor.

Good luck and happy gaming! thumb.gif

i apreciate your time to list all this . i want to go with a gigabyte uda3 . i painted my box inside to match it smile.gif


pretty lame on intels part. i hope amd can rally .

mother board is gonna be the first big purchase and then go from there . and ill be sure to ask along the way.

Glad to see another member joining into our nerd kingdom xD

I wish I had access to a spray room like that! Would love to do some custom paint jobs.

As far as the 4100, I'd second it--if you can get a 4170. There is a decent jump in gaming performance between the 4100 and 4170, and not much more money.


Also, what are you using for cooling? You said you had a water cooled solution, what model is it? Or is it custom?

How about an FX-6300? It's only $35 more.

You can get Windows 7 cheaper than that on eBay... Or you could just not pay for it.
