fx8320 to 4770k ? - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Not worth it at all, in real world you wont notice a difference. For benching, editing productivity the 4770k will shave off a few second or minutes!

From owning both, you'd be better off saving for haswell-E or similar.

Recently swapped from an FX 8320 @ 4.6Ghz to a i5 4670k (needed something new to play with)

Having used a Sandybridge and Ivybridge and Sandybridge-E - I preferred the AMD FX CPU's for the snappy system responsiveness.

Haswell has that nice system responsiveness on top of fluid Gameplay (running ASUS R9 290 in Crossfire)

I play mainly MMO's and have noticed a 20+ FPS increase running the i5 4670k @ stock compared to the 8320 @ 4.6Ghz

@ 1440p resolution

So take from that what you will. I'm a huge fan of AMD, but I really like the Haswell CPU's

Worth it is entirely up to you, if you love to tinker with the hardware side of things, then yes do it and enjoy the process. Playing with a new cpu is always fun. But Im not so sure you will SEE a difference. Fraps might record a difference, but seeing it is different. its like when I play with my gtx770 at stock and then oc it and get a 20fps increase in my average. Its not really something too noticeable when the settings are already maxed. As long as your not getting stutter or any kind of weird cpu bottleneck I dont think you will see it.

I had my streak with cpu's for fun and gameplay with bf3 never really changed. Went from a 1100t, 8150, 2500k, 3570k then 2700k. Was fun overclocking them, but game play was always pretty similar to the point that in a blind test Im not sure I could tell the difference.

Actually considering your on a 1080p, I would put that money to either a 1080p 144hz monitor, or a 1440p 120hz and really enjoy that gpu power thumb.gif

I don't think this is too accurate. I play bf4 with my 120hz and most maps on bf4 ultra/no msaa I average anywhere from 79-115fps with mins in the 60-70fps range on my gtx770 and its still WAY smoother than 60hz.

Even at straight ultra with averages in the 65-90fps range with mins in the 45-70fps range, its still smooth.

Thnx for the advise i'm already planing a 120 or 144 hz i know this gpu horsepower is a little overkill for 1080 60 hz panel so here the plan:
1sr: bying a new screen (120 or 144hz 1440p)
2nd: saving money ( lot of it biggrin.gif )
3rd: bying a sabertooth x99 along with a 5820k
4th: for the ddr 4 this is another story ( i dont know if my ddr3 will be compatible or not )

Amen

You did. Or so I thought you did, based on what you said. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Playing a game on 800x600 removes all stress off a GPU, and the latency of the system becomes CPU, not the GPU.

Maybe it came off wrong, but I got the impression you were stating that at a lower resolution, the load changed somehow.
My point is that the load stays the same. Seems like we're "arguing" about the same thing. (Lol)

Our positions are the same, though I thought you were saying something else.

This is common knowledge and a common trend in the enthusiast community; people going balls to the walls with their graphics and leaving their CPU's respectable, but not $600 Intel Extreme's anymore.

It's actually easier to deal with a slower GPU than a bad CPU, assuming both are not complete crap.
CPU limiting performance? You're mostly screwed, unless you upgrade hardware.
GPU limiting performance? You can usually change settings, lower the res, or turn of AA to get an acceptable framerate without new hardware.

Graphics can be tweaked, most of the time the game logic cannot. You can't be in a crowded zone in WoW and tell your computer to remove half of the players in the city from your processing load, but if you're running slow due to the shadows, they can be easily toggled off.

Yup. Which is why I felt I should reply to the following, as the load doesn't "become" anything different. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
