AMD 63XX +83XX still a good chioce ?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
looking for some unbiased opinions on these cpu's. i have two budget builds coming up,and wonder if these cpu's would be up to the task. they will be used for surfing and gaming. the games will be like doom,bf,and some racing games.

i know they both run present games,but what about future dx12 games? i just need to know how much longer these cpu's can hang in there?

When you say gaming, we need information on what GPU will they be paired with and what resolution they will be using as this can influence the choice smile.gif

sorry, i was thinking something like a rx 470 or maybe 480. both systems will be running at 1080p at the most.

i will have an extra r9 290 i can put into my sons rig,or i could sell it and pick up another rx 480?

Well if you just go by gaming benchmarks and Youtube videos the i3-6100 beats the 8350 OC in gaming.   And i think if you can get hold of an older bios for the i3 you can OC it past 4ghz. 

 

And the i3 is like 50 dollars cheaper.  Skylake i5 is about 200 dollars if you can afford that.

Why do you have a hard time going i3? For entry level gaming you want skylake i3 or piledriver, for more performance and neither of their weaknesses you go skylake i5.

im going to sit down with my friend after work tuesday,and try to explain some of these things to him. i do understand the fx,and i3 are budget minded builds.after some thought,im thinking the amd is just going to be dead in the water ,and no where to go after the fx cpu.

his budget isnt really tight,and he'll give me more money as we go. i was thinking about starting out with an i5 and maybe h170 board.what do you think of this board?

I have a gigabyte gaming 5 motherboard my self and its been very nice.  Have had zero problems with it.   Be in mind though the board you linked only has 1 16x PCI slot I think.  So if your friend wants to upgrade later with two GPUs he won't be able too.
