Yeah the 4690k is really the best of both worlds. The encoding of an 8350 and all the gaming performance you'd expect out of an intel chip. All for about the same price of an 9370.

A good 650W unit can handle two 980's, but if you want to be safe for the future (in case power draw increases again) I would get a good 750W/850W unit. Can't go wrong with the EVGA SuperNova G2 series. I think there is a new(ish) G2 650W unit or something like that if you want a 650W unit. @shilka, can you help me out here? I think he's using Canadian stores and imports from US shops.

If he goes SLI I would definitely recommend at the LEAST a quality 750 watt PSU. Now granted, I have a lot going on in my rig, but with the CPU at 5 ghz and both 980s moderately overclocked in the 1400+ area i can use 650 watts adjusted for efficiency. Your recommendation was sound. The 750 watt G2 I had handled things fine, I went to an 850 watt G2 to give it a little more OC headroom.

AMDs FX chips are kinda outdated now, but still viable. i5 is a little better tho because of its IPC, and i7 is ofc much better if thats in the budget.

Never ever, get an intel board, it has less options for overclocking then I have seen on other X38 motherboards. I might go with FX 8350 but if you look at the Frames comparison between the FX and the i7, it goes from 10-100 frame differences. Some games I saw that did better on the AMD; for example, Counter Strike Global Offensive has 23 FPS higher on the FX than the i7, How do some game have higher framerate for AMD CPU's? Could it be that the AMD is heavily optimized?


Well the 8350 at 4.4-4.6Ghz was an upgrade at IPC performance over a 4.4 Q9550 that i had, plus 4 more cores and twice the RAM and RAM speed. (8gb to 16gb and 1100mhz to 2000mhz) Plus SLI.

I would get a 990FXA Gigabyte Mobo or MSI/ASUS and a 8320 or 8350, or heck a 8370 would be even better. Though i would wait till Skylake or Zen to be honest, since the AM3+ socket will most likely Die when Zen hits.

Yeah the Intel boards suck, should of got a EP45-UD3R or UD3P from Gigabyte. Or even a X48 for the DDR3 RAM.

CSGO i would of thought would favor Intel since it's not a "Crysis" of FPS games? (Crysis 3 for example is better on a 8350 then a 4770K, google it lol) But yeah if the game will use 5+ cores then the 8XXX FX will shine some.

As far as opimized for AMD, I know Crysis and BF4 was. After that idk to be honest.

@PimpSkyline Thanks for the info. Also, if all 8 cores are utilized would it do much better than the i7 or roughly the same or worse?

I need to know because I want to develop software/games for the AMD so it can optimized and I want to see the real power of AMD FX chips.

Thanks.

It will perform closely. It will definitely out perform an i5 at the same speed.

Like I said much earlier in this thread, 8320, decent board, and cooler will be a little cheaper than i5, board, and cooler and will work better if you do use the entirety of the 8 threads.

I think a 4790k would be a better choice, pair it with a GA-Z97X-Gaming 5 and a Noctua D14/D15, and it should bee able to do ~4.8GHz and out perform an 83X0(E) at 4.6GHz by a little bit. Pkus, you will have a nice amount of single threaded performance advantage.

I don't nrmally recommend an i7, but your primary need is for a workstation, so to me the 4790k is the only way to go. Get a decent 750W PSU for future SLi/XFire and have fun with it

I'm getting a 750W EVGA G2 PSU with 2400 MHz ram with the 8320, simply because I'm just developing mediocre apps right now, so I should be able to get a significant jump with the AMD, right? The 4790k is too overkill in terms of price as it's $430 in canada + ontario Tax. I'm just building a rig for a year so I can upgrade to Zen or skylake (6th gen). Most likely Zen because I like the way AMD is going, there a much better company than intel with their business practices. What do you think? Stupid choice? smile.gif
