AMD or Intel Build for Battlefield 4 $1000 Gaming PC

Which Build Should I go with and should I make any changes? In addition Will the Intel build be a significant step up when it comes to playing Battlefield 4? FPS wise?

Thanks

  1. Intel chipsets tend to work better with AMD cards(Intel's works more efficiently with OpenGL. So I'd choose the Intel build all day and get more performance out you 7970(280X).
  2. The Intel is more expensive, but it has nearly double the power. You can even go with the i5 4670k and it's a lot better then the 8350!
    I would take the Intel Xeon E3 1230 or the i5 4670k, but at the moment Intel is better then AMD...

    With the 7970, please do it justice and use this thread when it comes time to do some real overclocking. No limits

  5. With a good graphics card, you will not notice much difference from a good AMD CPU. Yes, Intel benchmarks much better but for for the most part, you will not be able to notice it 99 percent of the time. I have an 8350 and 760 and can run Crysis maxed out without stutter.
  6. That's not a good comparison. You're not taking the $140 difference into account really. You've also picked a motherboard for the AMD that is vastly superior to the Intel motherboard. If you just take that $140 into account, you can can add an SSD which increases performance dramatically. If you had played by your own rules and set the limit at $1000, then you'd have only an HD 7950 with the Intel CPU.

    You gotta love DEM Samsung 840 Pro 256GB drives. Mine is still running like a tank, after being filled like 90 times already.

    LOL ,totally! Mine's an OCZ Vertex3, same thing. :D
  9. AMD...

    just picked up a 8350 and when i looked at CPU benchmarks on BF3 the difference between my 8350 and the Intel exactly twice as much $$$...was ....

    1 frame per second.....
  10. The actual difference is power consumption and cooling for AMD is lot higher and important.
