Solved

which of these 2 rigs should i choose?AMD or Intel for gaming!!!

hey people, firstly i would have chosen amd but some people pulled my mind over to intel here are the rigs and they have a 70 Euro difference... the intel is 70 euros more but i have enough money to buy it :)...
INTEL PC:
k380 coolermaster box
750W PSU superchannel
1TB seagata barracuda
motherboard is a G43 one something.
CPU i5 4670 3.4Ghz
GPU GTX 670 MSI power edition
8GB corsair vengeance RAM
--------------------------------------------
AMD PC
all the same as intel accept the following:
also G46 mobo...
FX 8350 piledriver
HD 7950

I will play on a 23' screen on 1080 so what will be the best for future care?
also i dont now who wants to buy the HD 7950 because his mem speed is 1004 mhz slower then the 670 and his core clock bouwt 300mhz slower...tnx!

More about rigs choose amd intel gaming
  1. I would probably go with the intel build and get a 760 maybe instead.
  2. i would chose the intel cpu. the intel run cooler than the amd and use's less power.
    also i believe the i5 4670 give better gaming performance overall when compared to the amd FX-8350.
  3. 60Hz? Go AMD, but switch out the HD 7950 with a GTX 760 4Gb. The 8 cores will help with next gen gaming and the 4gb vram will help with the possibility of VRAM usage being higher in the near future.

    If you had a 120Hz monitor, I would recommend an intel i7. But for now, I think AMD is a better option because of the 8 core support comming VERY soon. To be totally honest with you, you would NOT notice the difference between a FX 8350 and an i7 on a 60 Hz monitor.

    Also, I have a friend running a FX 8350/GTX770 rig, and we see no difference in FPS.
  4. Go with the intel build and look at the 770. Or you can go 760 thats right on par with a 670 just cheaper.
  5. okey wait i just saw this new card at www.loot.co.za and he is a Innovision Inno3D nVidia GTX 770 Graphics Card (2GB)(PCI-E 3.0)......it is 10 Euro's more expensive then the GTX 670 MSI power edition... should i pick that one instead of the 670?
  6. Yea
  7. Intel with the 770 would be great. Only because im a intel fan.

    Next gen gaming with the CPU is on the way though, So it wouldn't be a bad idea... Check your sockets on the mobo. Upgrades are always an option
  8. okey, i am not realy good in checking if my rig will be compatible.... but the intel i will buy will fit on my mobo... but how do i know if the 770 will? and dont you maybe think i should rather pick the amd fx 8350 that has 8 cores for the next gen?
  9. Best answer
    The 770 uses a pci express 3.0 slot... Which is the standard on all recent motherboards, just make sure the motherboard has atleast a slot.
    Make sure you're case has clearance for the vid card and a aftermarket cpu cooler.

    You could go for the 8core... or swap your intel cpu for a 3570k unlocked to overclock to 4.5-4.8ghz with a budget cooler.
    Not sure on the price differences though.

    Just to warn you though, amd chips heat up alot... So you will defs need a cpu cooler of some sort,. A CM 212EVO will do the trick for around 30-35$
  10. man thanks for your damn great info!! i really appreaciate it! :D and ill try to go for the FX 8350! woohoo!
