Amd cpus vs Intel cpus for gaming. - Page 2

post #11 of 59
FX 6300 does real nice on games old and new in my own experience with a gtx 760 to match which pars well against intel's similar offerings. Two 760's or bigger card would be better value than a more expensive cpu. smile.gif Just because i'm cheap and like overclocking the fx chip's. For me the fun factor of matching a i-2600 or i-3570 on some of the games out ways 20 fps on a "60hz monitor". biggrin.gif

It depends on your budget but overall Intel is hands down better.

I think its only fair to have a $200 dollar cpu vs $200 dollar cpu, not 200 against 1000 dollar monster.I dont know nearly as much as you guys do but from what I can see nothing will determine your gaming performance more then a gpu! There is a place for the $1000 dollar cpus as well as the $100 dollar ones, if you want the most fps just invest in a better gpu vs cpu correct? Iam pretty sure we would all be rocking intels most expensive parts but not all of us can afford to go that route. Iam still debating which intel chipset to start building, I wouldnt mind experamenting with the z77 and a i7 3770k.I like staying a gen or 2 behind, you save some money and the bugs are usually ironed out bye then.

I run AMD and Intel for Gaming and encoding and I prefer My 8320/7950 over my 2500k/7950. I run them both at 4ghz. Mostly because I'm cheap and I refuse to cough up $300 for a decent Intel CPU. for encoding the 8320 screams and I am more than happy with the cost/fun ratio. It's a matter of personalchoice and how much you are willing to spend.

Ok from a gaming prespective will I notice a diffrence with my fx 9370 vs my older fx 6100? Yeah I think ill end up getting a 3770k with a nice board like the maximus extremme.

The comparison for gaming is one of determining if you are an FPS whore or want to just play your games and enjoy. For 99% of the games out there the AMD chip will delivery a great gaming experience and unless you sit on an FPS monitor you will not be able to tell the difference.

I can tell you with two Intel and an AMD APU system sitting in the same room no one cares which machine they get to game on, all do an awesome job.

Pi's Almost-One-Size-Fits-All AMD vs. Intel CPU Questionnaire for Gamers:

Note: This questionnaire assumes that gaming is the primary purpose of the rig, and all other applications are of lesser concern.

1) Are you running a multiple card setup?
Yes: Intel.
No: Proceed to Question 2.

2) Is either Starcraft 2 or Civilization V a game that you spend a significant amount of time playing?

Yes: Intel.
No: Proceed to Question 3.

3) Do you have a 60 Hz monitor?
Yes: Proceed to Question 4
No, it's 120 Hz: Intel, you overprivileged bourgeois oppressor with too much cash to burn. biggrin.gif
No, it's 30 Hz: You should be thinking about a monitor upgrade.

4) Are you:
  • Worried about your environmental footprint or your energy bill from this rig over the very long term (5+ years) AND
  • Do you leave your computer on 24/7 with power-saving features like C6 state disabled in the BIOS OR
  • Do you consistently run your computer at full CPU load (for example, do you use your computer as a folding rig?)*
*=Gaming very rarely causes full CPU load.
Yes: Intel
No: AMD

That is why i recommend an i-7 based chip like this 200 dollar Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 otherwise intel is crippling future and present gaming potential which the 8350 has because of it's eight cores. need a desktop chip without gpu that can be overclocked vs. amd thumb.gif
