So im planning on what cpu and gpu to get for my first build. Im personally between a fx 6300 and a radeon 7950. Or a haswell or ivy i5 and a 7870 ghz edition. Which one will offer better performance and are their any other suggestions which are better thanks and have a wonderful day
In my opinion, an Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge and a Radeon HD 7870 are a much better combo than the AMD FX-6300 and Radeon HD 7950. They are more balanced, performance wise. An i5 and 7870 are both a bit over mid-range; but a 6300 is mid-range, and the 7950 is close to high-end, bottlenecking just a little bit.
Wouldnt one of the cheaper ivy i5s better like the 3350p?
The 2500k is still the best bang for buck intell processor in the market.
Cheapish, Great at stock and will also overclock very well to compete against much higher value chips. I always think that somebody messed up at Intell when pricing the 2500k as it destroys chips double its value
I wouldnt go ivy or haswell just yet but then again as i already have the 2500k theres not much point in me upgrading just yet.
I know but im leaning towards a 3570k because its only 7$ more and its newer ie more support and why not i rather pay the 7$ for a newer piece of technology but thank you i would consider it if the price difference was like 40$ but for 7$ no way ill take ivy over sandy. Thanks though and would you mind recommending me some nice componenets to go along with it i would like atleast a 7870,8gb rm and 1 tb storage i also plan on ovefclocking thank for the help
