Performance of GTΧ 770 on a budget new CPU vs a high end one.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm interested in going high end when 14 nanometers are the norm so I was wondering if one can get away with a budget CPU and a good GPU for the next 2 years.

For example

Budget 8-core AMD with GTΧ 770

Compared to

ι7-4770k with GTX 770

What are differences between the two in 3D performance?

For 3D gaming, the 4770k will outperform an 8core AMD by a fair margin.

From reviews and opinions around the net, I'd say go for the i5-4670K. It's still a lot better than the 8350, not much worse than the 4770k, and comes in a lot cheaper.

Really depends on the game. Most FPS like Metro, Far Cry, BF3 will do well with a powerful GPU + AMD CPU. Many RPGs and RTSs like Skyrim will suffer greatly using an AMD CPU. Basically, if you have a game with a lot of physics, AMD CPUs will be inferior.
