Everything you listed except for recording or streaming is actually not that CPU intensive.
That's such a closed minded way to think man. How about the people with 1440p or 1600p monitors or people who use Eyefinity or Surround? For the people who can afford higher-tiered cards than you, many don't just play on a single 1080p monitor.

My 7950 is OCed to the balls and it can hardly keep up in many games maxed out on a 3240x1920 res.

So are you saying with my two 580 GTXs and my 120hz monitor I can't play games? You saying I need what you have to have great graphics ? I need to have 3 monitors and an insane resolution for no reason?

I got poor eyesight and I can barely focus playing games on my laptop... My Setup alone is just as effective in gaming as yours is... Maxing out is a personal preference, but as it it stand literally you don't even have to go that far to play a game dude...


What? You forgot we all started with a Nintendo and a little ass TV? Lol You are on that hype dude lol... The thing is... Gaming has not evolved... only the technology surrounding it has, when I see a photo realistic face being the norm or games looks EXACTLY like CG (BeoWolf) ... I will over haul the crap out of my computer. As it stands that has not happened yet lol, and all the things you own you do not "NEED" Its just what you wanted... you are like 1% of people who play games in that manner haha.

Clearly you haven't stepped up to 1440p or 1600p yet. My 670 which is significantly faster than any 580 out there can barely run FC3 at medium at playable frame rates at 1440p. If you think there's no need for anything faster than a 580, you're pretty deluded.

Your original statement did not appear to be limited to people with a single monitor and poor eyesight. "There has been no significant change in the computer world to warrant super overclocks for gaming or have anything better than a 580 GTX in your computer.... " That's a fairly broad claim. Also I doubt people use three monitors for no reason. Those monitors actually display things.

I agree that a GTX580 is capable of delivering a very satisfying game experience for most users, yes. Saying that there has been no significant change in the computer world warranting anything better than a 580 is incorrect, though. High resolution single displays, 120hz displays, more demanding game engines..There are games where a 580 (a single one, at least) would result in needing to compromise certain visual elements to achieve smooth frame rates even at 1080. When it comes to entertainment software, the only justification one needs for the hardware is the desire to experience those visuals.

That's what I keep saying.

AMD is "fine" in games. Trying to argue that AMD sucks or AMD is better than intel, depending which side you are on, is stupid.

I don't need anything higher tan 1080P to kill things the same way you do, it's proven tongue.gif ...

No it doesn't. As long as you pick and choose. However in the grand scheme a 6 core processors doesn't even come close to a 4 core. You might want to look at that again.

Well, it depends on your definition of fine. I mean the 960t is viable for normal non-enthusiasts gamers. You can still have a balanced system with 4 core amd cpu (960t biggrin.gif FX-4300 rolleyes.gif ). Balanced meaning it can drive a graphics card that is still better than any console.

It's interesting to see the 2600K performing almost 10 FPS higher overall than its smaller brother, 2500K.

Well...once you get a 120hz monitor and wish to chase the fludness of the experience you better be pushing more then 60 FPS...@1080p. Beisde overlocking my CPU and GPU has netted me on Average ~20 increase in fps.
