Hi OCN,i need help choosing!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
OCN Community ,what is the best choice for my next rig?

i5 3470 + R260X?
or
amd fx 6300 + 7870?

This rig will be focus on future games like Watch Dogs,BF4,Dragon Age Inquisition ...
I would like to play GW2 too biggrin.gif.
I want to see others opinions because i cant choose frown.gif

I have just looked up multiple reviews and its pretty obvious that the 7870 is alot faster / better than the R7 260X GPU that has been recently released. so thats a vote for the 7870.

CPU type of thing... I would also go with an i5, its quad core, has decent performance and stability and along with the more powerful GPU (7870) I would vote for the i5.

i5 + 7870 is my vote.

I noticed you are located in Portugal and you options are limited. so good luck with your new purchase.

Hope this was helpful information

yea,here in Portugal options are very limited, and i5 prices are really high comparing with amd.
The problem is, with my tiny budget(744 $) i cant afford a i5+7870 frown.gif

maybe you can wait alittle bit more until you get enough for the i5+7870. you will be way more satisfied with it other than the FX+260X.

welp... you asked which one is better and i gave you my answer biggrin.gif good luck

If you have to choose I would say the GPU would be the more important part (as most games are still quite GPU limited). That said, what about an i3 with a 7870? If and when you need/want to you could swap it out for an i5/i7 and use the i3 for a HTPC, home server, or second machine.
