AMD vs Intel - Page 4

post #31 of 45
Best bang for the $$$ for gaming comes down to the AMD PhenomIIx4 and the Intel i5 760 (and any other true quad cores in the range).
Avoid the AMD Athlon, i3 and dual+HT i5 chips as just too puny for the job. The i7 is very expensive, and Thuban (AMD's X6) doesn't offer any benefits in 99% of games.

For GPU: Then AMD/ATi gives us the 5850, 5870 which have dropped in price now the 69xx have come out. Or you could go for the Nvidia GTX460, or 560 which are about the best DX11 cards for the money out there.

In that case getting a 500watt PSU is more than enough. The 850watt is pointless and so is the 8gigs of RAM.

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k; Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 Pro;
Memory: G.Skill Rip Jaws 8GB (2x4GB); Hard Drive; RealSSD 64GB, WD 1TB Caviar Black
Graphics Card: GTX470 (still up in the air); PSU: Kingwin 850w; Case: HAF 932;
CPU Cooling; Cooler Master V6 GT RR

Im sitting at 1282.88 and im sure I will be told to upgrade the vid card so let me know im up for suggestions. Thank you in advance
Good CPU and Mobo.

Ram is fine.

I am not sure about the SSD (the Intel 40GB SSD is great for a boot drive), but the I would get the Samsung Spinpoint F3 over the HDD. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

If you are going to get an GTX 470, get a GTX 560 ti instead. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130604

The 850w Kingwin is a bit unnecessary and if its not a lazer gold, its kind of meh. One of these will more than power your rig: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151088

HAF is a great case, if its what you like.

I would go for a Prolimatech Supermega or Noctua NH-D14 over the CM V6.

With a $1500 budget get an i7. 950 or 2600k, your main advantage with 950 is that if you want more PCI-E lanes (Tri-SLI or crossfire), you can find a mobo that does that for a more reasonable price range, and the ability to use triple channel memory. Although the 2600k is 32 nm so it'll OC a bit better, run a little colder, and be a bit little faster overall as well.

OP already said he won't be getting another graphics card and the main benefit of the i7 is hyperthreading; no games utilize this so its kind of pointless.

What I've came up with. Let me know if you cannot see
You cannot link carts, or wish lists, as they are dependent to your machine only via cookies in the browser. (If you clear your cookies in your browser, even a saved cart on your machine will go bye-bye).

A good alternative is to take a pic of the shopping cart, upload it, and post it.

With that budget I'd build an Intel i5-2500k with GTX570 or 580 and Asus or Gigabyte MB.

Well OP didn't indicate anything about folding. You can't recommend an i7 to everyone on OCN and assume they will start folding in the future.
