How strong is this 2013 PC?

That old i3 certainly had me concerned.


Same here. I seriously wouldn't do that and not worth building if all your going to put into it is a i3. Save money and get something a little better.

As of now that build is weak.

Why on earth would you get such a nice mobo and then throw a worthless cpu on it?

Oh come on guys. He's trolling you. -_-

If the budget was $500 what would you build?

Howabout this ~$400 PCS4?

The amd CPU even though 6 cores is only 1.3x a i3 3220 which is only 1.3x my cpu that means when using the gpu and cpu incombination with my 28-32GB/s PCI bus vs your 8 GB PCI bus I will have an advantage at around 300-400% when the cpu and gpu have to communicate. so I can take a 50% loss in CPU speed in GHz which handling 8Bytes(64bit processor) a cycle and ~2GHZ is about half the speed of the ram at 16GB/s. So its essentially a 32GB/s cpu with 8GB/s Ram or a 16GB/s CPU with 32-28GB/s RAM. I save 75% time which the CPU uses 50% of the time because it is twice as slow but still 25% faster overall with better communication.

The Ram is also slower because I have two Ram banks at 1333 while you only have 1 ram bank at 1600MHz.

The GPU is slightly weaker.

Why so much on the power supply and little on the board?
