HELP WITH BUILD - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I'd go with AMD for a 500$ build:

Mobo http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130680
CPU http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130680
RAM http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231654
PSU http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026
GPU http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202011

Also i'd recommend picking up this cooler and OCing the CPU as AMD benefits a lot from higher frequency

With the cooler it all comes to total of $498

Also, 7770 will perform very well with ANY games at that res

Why amd?
Looking at benchmarks, gaming benchmarks to be exact. they show that it's almost matched in most cases with i5 performance, but it's cheaper making it ideal for a budget like yours over the i3 thumb.gif

Ehh, i3 with a 7850 will perform better, a 7770 is not that great of a card. If he had $100-$200 more to upgrade, then AMD would be a viable option.

Agreed, the 7770 is quite a bad card for gaming. I'd even argue he might be able to squeeze in a 7870 or 7870 LE.

The 7770 Ghz edition cards aren't that great, but neither are they bad. He wishes to run @ ~40FPS in games which the 7770 does, which is a great value for about $100. It comes in at about half the cost of most 7870's.

oh the irony of saying if he spent MORE money on an AMD system lachen.gif

Get the 7770 GHz edition and spend the extra money on a great cpu now, then in a year or so if the 7770 starts lacking in performance in those new games, add a second and run them crossfired. I can attest to the fact that they run great In Xfire. Before I got the 7950 I was running crossfired 7770's. They were absolutely great thumb.gif

It's sad, but it's true. budget builds go the following route

Trinity -> Pentium/i3 -> FX -> i5

AMD is only the cheapest of the cheap for a gaming rig. Intel now has viable cheap options that will fit most peoples budgets.

An FX chip will perform close to the same as an i3 in gaming, but it tends to be much better when overclocked. Especially if you have a half decent cooler.

What the OP should do, is spend $400 on an upgrade and $100 on a 1080p monitor.

Only problem is, the GPU will not be able to play upcoming games at +40FPS

Actually, I was correct. You have fallen victim to someone who skews results.
Lol I've seen Tek Syndicate's reviews. He does not benchmark correctly.So, please get your facts straight.

Tek Syndicate is the only one who gets those numbers. No other benchmark has ever had those results. Everything Tek Syndicate says should be taken with a grain of salt.
