FX-6300 and R7 260x

#41KirinosPanties(Topic Creator)Posted 7/22/2014 11:10:57 AM
Well, i decided to increase my budget a bit more and have the following processor and video card

i5 4460
R9 270x

how's that? Would get the gtx 760 but it would be $85 more. Right now this is at $775.

That sounds alright for $775. Do you care to post the whole build for further scrutiny?

I used to use intel CPU's as well i have also used nVidia GPU's as well. When i switched from Intel to AMD i went from a Pentium 4 2.53Ghz to an Athlon 64 running at 2.2ghz and that and the motherboard were the only 2 new parts. i was using the same PSU, the same GPU the same OS the same RAM the same amount of RAM everything and my performance in games wasn't affected the computer didn't crash any more than it did with the P4. I didn't have any driver issues or anything like that either despite people telling me i had made a bad choice and should have stuck with intel.


Back then, AMD did perform better (and cooler too!). That was the best part of a decade ago. Things have changed massively. Also, I don't know why you keep bringing up stability. Assuming you don't get something faulty, AMD processors work perfectly fine, and no one has hinted otherwise.

TC I hope you like what you decide to get.

I do hope you understand that gamefaqs is probably the worst place to ask for advice though.

- I'm going to recommend that you look at http://www.ecollegepc.com/intel-haswell.html instead of iBUYPOWER if you're not willing to build the computer yourself
- Don't spend extra money on a Z97 motherboard if you're not getting an overclockable CPU, stick with an H97 motherboard
- Likewise, that Asetek liquid cooler is wasteful in light of your choice of CPU
- "500 Watt - Standard" is a terrible idea for a PSU, get a good one instead

That's what i was saying though. Intel fanboys constantly bang on that AMD is no good for gaming, that their CPU's require their own nuclear reactor to run and that their GPU's constantly have driver issues. Their only defence is the benchmark scores but they never backup any of their claims that AMD is bad for gaming and people who actually own AMD CPU's and GPU's always tend to disagree.

The only things that have changed is that more and more people that run magazines, youtube channels and websites are being paid by Intel to fake benchmark scores to make it look like Intel is the superior product and even a dual core i3 can outperform anything made by AMD by miles.
