AMD FX-6300 with GeForce GTX 750ti or i5 4670k with GeForce GTX760??

I'm not really knowledgeable in this area but after witnessing people make a big deal about low quality motherboards and VRMs for overclocking I did a little research. From what I can gather it seems AMD uses VRMs on the motherboards while processors like the 4670k have them built into the processor. I guess that makes sense why people say the motherboard matters a lot for AMD but not so much for Intel.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I have very little experience in this area. More information is available on the Wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltage_regulator_module

Waaaat?


People with low quality mobos tend to have throttling issues due to shoddy VRMs. For example, a person with an Fx-8350 with all cores at 4.0Ghz during heavy stress in a game will suddenly and frequently drop to 1.8Ghz.causing a lot of lag. This happens because the VRM has heat issues, when the temperature reaches a certain point, the mobo suddenly lowers the wattage of the cpu to prevent damage which in turn under clocks its cores to cool down.

Here's a video that explains what I'm saying.

You always need lots of phases on the board to deliver power from the power supply to the CPU. How many you have determines how far you can overclock, heat allowing.
The reason it matters more for AMD than Intel is because AMD CPUs are goddamn power vampires that eat 140w+ for a mild(~15-30%, depending on chip and binning) overclock.
For intel, it matters less because intel CPUs typically eat less power. 3570k is, iirc, 77w? With the IGP included. That's a lot more headroom than 125w for stock with no IGP.

As far as CPUs go Intel is objectively better than AMD for video games.


Odd then that i am getting over or around 60fps at 1080p on my PC games then.

I'll be getting a 650 watt Corsair either way it goes. But a $300 difference, honestly I'm gonna go with the AMD build. I can sell it in a few years for 4 to 5 hundred bucks and use that to make a beastly intel then.


The logic in this makes no sense...I'm going to go AMD to sell it a few years later to go Intel...

If you play more CPU heavy games like most open world games you'll notice a big difference in your minimum framerate. Meaning, with AMD you'll see much larger drops.

You know what. Make this a learning experience. Get the AMD so that you can regret it a year from now and never make that dumb choice again.
