  1. That'll work, if in the budget would do a better GPU, but need to stay in your budget
  2. What is your budget so I can give your a more accurate configuration.

    You would want something like this:

  13. I was close ;) actually surprised I remembered it
  14. hafijur said:
    Yes its Eid al-Adha tommorow:) Just wanted to say 7750 is a decent gpu for 1280x720p gaming for 1920x1080p you should try and get a 7850.


    i dont got money for that :p maybe i should get an fx 6300 and get an much better graphics card ?
  15. Tradesman1 said:

    should i get an fx 6300 and buy an much better gpu ?
  16. That would be a good alternative, the GPU is prime in gaming, and the 6300 can feed it nicely
  17. hafijur said:
    I think an fx6300 and a 7850 will get you much better gaming experience as a 7750 is as fast as my mid range laptop gt 650m gpu and I know its only really good for 720p gaming.


    i was going to buy an fx 8320 and an 7750 2gb ddr3 i was thinking maybe i should get an 1 gb ddr5 cuz i really like fx 8320 i cant change it :p
  18. Tradesman1 said:

    but i love fx 8320 its like $25 more expensive than fx6300 and its much better :p
  19. Then go for it! You'll have to figure how to finagle within your budget or find a way to add to the budget

    Just to let you know multitasking usually requires strong per core performance massive memory bandwidth memory speed and modern memory controller. Thats why intel cpus are much better at multitasking even i3's will feel much faster and responsive then the fx8320 unless you use around 60%+ of the fx8320. AMD platform is quite outdated a good few years while intel have basically the latest and greatest stuff on there new z87 mobos.


    are you fckin kidding me z87 is 200$? im 13 i dont got that much money, about the cpu i compared i3 4130 i think it was with fx 8320 and game debate showed me that the fx 8320 is 48% better :D

    GIGABYTE GA-B85M-HD3 Intel B85 (Socket 1150) I got this £28.43 including delivery socket 1150 which supports haswell cpu and an i5 4430 for £101.34 delivered off ebay. i3's will feel much faster due to per core performance and fast memory support. Choice for you is an i5 low end haswell or an fx8320. You have to remember haswell cpu comes with an igpu hd 4600 whole the fx8320 doesn't and for gaming any i5 haswell quad will beat amd in pretty much most games.

    im getting the fx 8350 :D
  29. hafijur said:
    lol why fx8320 is much better value. My i5 4430 even is better then fx8350 for gaming.


    dude i compared i5 4430 with fx 8350 http://www.game-debate.com/cpu/index.php?pid=1195&pid2=1140&compare=core-i5-4430-3-0ghz-vs-fx-8350 :D
  30. hafijur said:
    For gaming the i5 4430 is much better then fx8350 yet that looks at the big numbers of the cpu lol. Thats just generic website. For gaming virtually any i5 quad sandy bridge on can beat the fx8350 at gaming performance. Thats amd cpus weakpoints.


    i was talking to a friend and he said you better get an motherboard with integrated graphics so you can get an i5-i7 and play online games (i play them alot) and then after 4-5 months get an gpu they will be cheaper than :p
  31. Yes that's always an option, many do it especially jumping to the 4670K if they can't afford both CPU and good GPU, then get the discrete GPU later
