AMD CPU

y u do dis


Seriously though, AMD CPUs are pretty far behind Intel these days. They're cheaper, but that's about as far as the advantages go.

I'm gonna go with a 7/10. GPU is good and it'll play most things and look nice doing it. It won't do super heavy lifting but you will be satisfied with it.

what would a 10/10 be? I mean I can't do much better GPU or storage wise. 8 more GB of ram maybe? An i7 that would be marginably better right now?


I'd give a 10 something with 3 to 4 GPUs and an Ivy-E processor. A 10/10 is for more than just games, a 10/10 is usually used as a home theater system as well. Usually they're exorbitantly expensive.

I'd consider my PC an 8.5/10 and it's pretty good. It cost a little over 2 grand so consider the kind of money you'd have to throw around to bump to 10. If you're not a enthusiast you wouldn't be shooting for a 10/10 type PC anyway because you wouldn't use it to the fullest of its capabilities.

My processor overclocked still beats some i7's very easily. It plays everything I've ran on it on max so far

7.5/10

Not a very good upgrade path these days. 760's while in sli are pretty nice, pale on their own. A single 780ti will put up a fight with sli 760's depending on the situation. Sli my 770 or anything better and it will make those 760's look bad.
The CPU is alright but on a per core basis, intel wins. It's a good system for sure but I would only rate my system as a 7.


I have a 760, and I can max pretty much every single game (most graphically demanding games I have right now are Crysis 2, BF3, and Arma 3) at 1080p with 60+ FPS easy.

Don't lie, maybe in one or two games it outperforms some of the older i7's. Try a busy game of Starcraft 2 or guild wars 2 and see how well it holds up.

*I also have an 8320, its a damn good processor but intels are actually that much better right now.
