7870 vs 760
He has a slight overclock on all tested cards, he always mentions that it's "moderate", meaning it's not raggedy edge, and the 7870 overclocks better then the 760, so assume a bigger delta (slightly) at stock.
On the CPU, it's annoying that there's not a lot of comparisons of the 6350 to anything else, I assume that it's an 8350 minus 1 bulldozer module. So this is the only site that has any meaningful information.
Passmark ranks the cpus as similar (the 6350 has 2 more cores to counter for the lower per core performance) then the value sets 'em up and knocks 'em down. The 3570k is a great cpu, but on a budget, it's not 50% slower, not even close. It is 50% cheaper. If you want AMD Nvidia, you get the FX 6350 and a 760, or for Intel AMD, you get the 3570k and the sapphire 7870 for the same price. The AMD, Nvidia will be faster for gaming because the GPU holds frame rates back 90%+ of the time. Either rig will play 1080p videos, acoustics will be nearly identical. The Vishera has gotten a lot of praise since it released:
I don't see a cause for concern to run a slightly slower CPU in order to get a 10-15% faster GPU when the slower CPU is unlikely to ever bottleneck the faster GPU, It's like free performance in games.
If I was spending $1000, I'd more than likely grab the 6350 and the 760. I went for maximum gaming performance, the reason I got a 3570k is that it's not likely to bottleneck anything. Intel's IPC and a decent overclock (4.6 GHz) assured me more CPU power than AMD could offer. If a titan can't be bottlenecked by a 3570k, then why should a GPU that's more than 50% slower than a Titan be bottlenecked by a cpu that's only 10-15% slower in single threaded performance? Granted it will bottleneck more easily, but at 1080p the 6350 has way more than you need to game at 60FPS in all games, so long as you have a GPU that can drive that.
I find it hard to believe that the precieved performance levels between these cpus will be enough to justify the price difference between them. The GPU's performace difference (granted that that sapphire 7870 is $50 off so they are in the same price bracket) They are a good 20% different at 1080p, so if you want the rig to last longer, the PGU power is going to run out a lot faster than CPU. As of now, both cards get 60+ FPS on nearly all games. Looking at next year, though with the new consoles and architectures, it's likely to see better multi threaded performance and a lot higher graphical demends. In these 2 things, the AMD Nvidia combo is possibly more future-resistant.
For all of these reasons, I'd get a 6350, 760. It is a free world, if you feel like the intel 7870 is better for you, by all means. That's a fine rig, but in terms of performance per dollar, you're trowing money in the wrong place to boost the experience.
