R7-260X low res gaming only at 1366 x 768

post #1 of 3

Title does not say it all, basically I have one old but very nice Sony 32" LCD TV with an excellent S-PVA panel that will only a clean 1:1 screen image at 1366 x 768 and only using VGA, which I am cool with because the colours, viewing angle, and deeps blacks look freaking awesome.

The card I am using is a R7-260X and will run almost anything maxed out and can have the good stuff on like AA and AF at the low resolution of 1366 x 768, still looks great on the eye when sitting a little back on the couch not to far away, and this was with a i5-2400 but that CPU is gone now into another rig.

I have a dilemma now my original CPU is gone, and I have to choose from either a i5-760 or a FX-8320, in which both will overclock equally as high at 4GHz and neither will go any higher. The i5-760 is getting old but the IPC is know to be still fast, where as the FX-8320 has pretty crappy IPC.
It is also known that fast IPC is what you need when at low resolution, where the CPU make a difference, and could be the reason why benchmarks are often pretty good for the FX-8320 at higher resolutions as not that many people bother to game much lower than 1080p.

Question is with a R7-260X running a resolution of 1366 x 768 and no more, with both i5-760 and FX-8320 running at 4GHz, which is the better choice for low res gaming for maximum frames per second with the highest minimum frame rate?

Let me point out again this is clock for clock, specificly at 4GHz each, so that bench mark doesn't really apply as there is a difference of 1.2GHz between the two.

Resolution is at 1366 x 768 and no higher, there processor power will like be more key factor than anything else.
