AMD FX8350, would it bottleneck 2xGTX 780? - Page 3

post #21 of 34
I highly suggest you read this OP: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fx-8350-core-i7-3770k-gaming-bottleneck,3407.html

FX-8350 isn't a terrible processor just not ideal for gaming. Why not take full advantage of your GTX 780 SLI setup by getting an i5-3570K, -4670K, or i7-3770K? The 8350 will be able to pump out a more than sufficient frame rate but why leave extra performance on the table when you are spending $1200+ on such an exotic video card setup?

The 3570K would serve you much better. Look around the net as it can be had for as low as $190 and lower if you are near a Micro Center.

I imagine these numbers would even be further separated with 2x 780s

So at best it ties intel, at worst it gets murdered oh and uses more power to do so

Saving money is good and all, but you should't be getting a crosshair, , and 780 if you want to save money wth.gif

crosshair v +- 200€ the maximus v +- 300€ use that 100€ for a h100i

Don't think the bottleneck will be very noticeable if any. And by the time you get that second gpu. steamroller will be up for grabs

Go for the crosshair v formula z and 8350 fx combo. You wont regret it , i didnt
mullti threaded is the future and steamroller will be compatible whit that mobo.
next gen console games will all be optimized to get the best out of the 8 core AMD processors in the Ps4 and Xbox one.
Game developers will all go multi thread. I did not say 4 is not enough. But 8 is plenty

And if your looking to buy a great budget case for that e-atx size mobo check out the thermaltake Overseer RX-i 130€ -140€

Whatever you decide. have fun whit the build thumb.gif

tough i agree that the 3770k is indeed better than the fx8350, i think getting the fx8350 will be better than getting the 3770k, it shows better performance, but not enought to make me wanna pay so much more for it, because after all the intel mobos are also way more expensive.And now that i tought about it, at the time i will be needing another 780, AMD will have lauched plenty of new better chipsets that i can change mine for, and the mobo i'm buying supports 3way sli, wich the intel mobos doesn't and are in fact more expensive

A 3770k+ a high end mobo isn't worth the money

2500k or 3570k sales, however, are great value. Good mobos go for less than $150 or even $100. OC for OC, Steamroller will catch up to the 3570k in lightly threaded games, and why would you even need more than 2 780s for 1080p gaming?

Yes, an 8350 is a great value and uses a cheap, upgradable platform. Games will run fine, but you shouldn't buy it for better value/future upgradability when you're getting a crosshair, h100, and a GTX 780 anyway

ho plays civilization anyway its the only game where the difference is noticable. a little O.C and the boom..away with the difference

And that power consumption comparison are apples and pears comp. or 200€ vs 3-4-500€ processors comp.
post #26 of 34
I completely agree with your point of view, and also, i already selected my case, it will be a 500R corsair, wich is completely compatible with the h100i and seems to have good airflow for only 120us$

Well i hope that e-atx mobo is going to fit that atx case wink.gif

considering the 8350 has what a 600mhz higher stock clock (vs an i5) and they both overclock to about the same, the gap would only widen and yes lets ignore a game because you don't play it, how convenient its the one amd gets destroyed in, but its not relevant... rolleyes.gif

As far as price, around here the 8350 and the i5 are almost identical in price and the i7 isn't that much more

The power consumption numbers for the cpus under full load are disgusting, the 8350 pulls like double

I don't think you would get any bottlenecks so aslong as you overclock the 8350, but here's the thing.

Since you clearly don't have a budget, go with intel, it's really just $50 or $100 more and in the long run you won't have to worry about any bottlenecks whatsoever. Plus like blindsay said, power consumption will be less with intel in this case.

Seriously. He'd save a bit with the i5-4670K + Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H vs. FX-8350 + Formula-Z

Even more with the i5-3570K + Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H

These are universal chips and excel in all areas. Gaming being one of them. They may not have as many physical cores as the 8350 but they don't need to as their individual cores are vastly superior. Yes, VASTLY.

the human eye is analog, there is no limit to what it can see really. but each individual has a point of diminishing returns at some fps mark where paying for more isnt worth it for them.
