  1. We cannot guarantee a gaming build to be future proof for 3-5 years.
  2. Read this thread http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/353572-13-build-upgrade-advice and edit your message accordingly
    Cheers.
  3. if its for a gaming system why to pick i7?i5 is perfect for gaming and consumes less power than the 8350!as mentioned above nobody can guarantee about a gaming system as new things come out all the time!i think intel will give you the ability for upgrading to an i7 or lga 2011 while on the amd there is nothing to upgrade!

    Why do people keep advicing to get i-5 or i7 correct me if im wrong, but i5 and i7 preforms slightly better per core but amd has 8 cores so in theory its faster. and power consumption makes it up by price cose its like 100 + euros cheaper then i7 and 40-50 euros then i5 3570k.
  5. No; we are saying don't pick the Intel Core i7. Do get the Intel Core i5. More cores makes no difference unless you are video encoding something. Most games won't use past four cores. And many games still only use two cores. So your octa-core has no effect in gaming.

    But feature game will mostly use more cores dont they?
  7. Not within the time of your CPU. You'll most likely be upgrading it before that happens.
  8. Was thinking bout this build:
    AMD 8350
    G.skill 2x4 Sniper
    Asus M599FX PRO R2.0
    XFX 850w XXX
    Sapphire 7950 duel-X Boost
    Antec H20 920 if i wood want to OC
    ADATA 128gb sx900
    Case: Zalman Z11 Plus

    Have 1tb western digi HDD and opti from my old system
    This is falling in to my budget Im livin in Netherlands and i buying from Alternate.nl
    I can get nice preformance out of 7950 cant i?
    How Does this build look?
  9. Looks good. Few comments/critiques:

    1. 850W is overkill.
    2. The Antec H20 isn't great.
    3. Yes; the HD 7950 will work very well.

    Well i was thinking that il be using that PSU for a long time but i can downgrade it to 750 from xfx or shud i go with corsair 750 is like 40 euro cheaper. well i have seen a few benchmarks of that coller and its prudy mtuch the same preformance as H100 with only push setup.
  11. 1. I agree; a 750W should be more than enough. But if you don't plan to SLI or CrossFire, a 650W is enough.
    2. H100 isn't great either. Very expensive and doesn't perform better than a heatsink.

    Thatss why i pick 850w coe i maybe getting Crosfire later on not shure yet, just wanted some spare power.
    What cooler wood you advice me then to go with?
  13. How far do you plan to overclock?

    as far as i may need round 5ghz if possible i can spend up to around 90 euro for a cooler
  15. Go with custom water cooling. Not the liquid cooling from the CLC. If you're new to overclocking, then I strongly advice that you don't try to hit 5GHz right away.

    But Customs are more expensive arent they?
  17. Yes. You aren't going to overclock to 5GHz on air or CLC coolers.
  18. Got my parts from MyCom, was about 1300EU in parts.
    But i use my PC for more then gaming, also graphics design.

    And take into account that you can swap out parts on a later date.

    Zalman or Cooler Master are good cpu fans, make sure it fits the case though.
  21. Best answer
    Best air cooler: Phanteks PH-TC14PE or the Noctua NH-D14.
    Best CLC cooler: Swiftech H220 (expensive though)

  23. THink That the Antec h20 920 is the best i can get for the money. proly will go with that. ty evryone :) got my answers :)
  24. look i7 does perform better than the 8350...also the 8350 does not actually have 8 physical cores but 8 visual cores i would say 4 physical!
    so its no that faster!
