    :na: Yet he wants to spend $83 on RAM. I like your build better. And OP won't overclock. Might as well get a i3 then, cuz it'll outperform a non overclocked fx-6300.

    Dude he said he didn't need any overclocking, plus the fx 6300 is a way better deal than the i3 (only a slight performance difference)...

    http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-3350P-vs-AMD-FX-6300
  11. ^^^I'd still rather have tinyvoices build. The fx-6300 vs i5-4430: i5 is faster, no question there. The 760 is a step above the 7950. Also, I like the case more than 210; although 300R is best option.
  12. Actually the 7950 performs on similar levels as the 760 (sometimes better), plus it has more vram which is better for higher resolutions (and its $50 cheaper).
  13. He said he would be editing as well. The i5 is a clear winner when it comes to editing over the 6300. I believe my build is the most well rounded for OP's budget.
  14. cpu boss is fun to look at. but it's not a review site. If you want to see benchmarks and real performance then you gotta search the web more. THe i5-4xxx will beat the fx-6300. Don't get me wrong the fx-6300 is really good, but it's not as capable as a i5-4xxx.

    This is not a review site. it simply compares things like clock speed (not applicable here), core count, and onboard GPU.

    http://anandtech.com/bench/product/699?vs=702 here the 6300 is compared to the i5 3470 (a worse CPU than the i5 4430) The winner is clear.
  16. Ok, ok, ok, i'll quit cutting corners and give him his price build (also a $10 off on the cpu but it's not showing)-

    Also it will definitely run bf4 on ultra.

    If GTX 760 cost $241 i would get this build, but gtx 760 cost $320 in my country :(

    HD 7870: $220
    HD 7950: $350
    GTX 650 ti boost: $200
    GTX 660: $250
    GTX 660ti: $300
    GTX 760: $320

    that is the prices of Video Cards in my country, CPU and other stuff have the same price
  21. Since you're trying to get the budget buy, I'd buy the 7870. Very fast and worth the money.

    What country are you in?
