Hey guys! Which processor will give better performance for an architect's workstation? An 8 core amd fx 9590 or an intel core i7 4770k? budget is not an issue. I dont mind if electricity bills will ramp up or anything, just which processor can give the better performance.

im building a mini itx:
case: corsair elite 130m
psu: ax750i (is ax really good or should i just get a less expensive option?)
ram: corsair vengeance 8x2gb
motherboard: maximus vi impact (will change if amd turns out to be better)
cooling: cm seidon 120m
hard drive: intel ssd 120gb x 2, 1tb wd caviar black
graphics card: nvidia quadro k2000

i'll be using revit, photoshop, illustrator, indesign, autocad, sketchup and 3ds max.

According to newegg, the only mini-itx AMD motherboards are FM* socket based not AM3+ socket. Therefore the previous question is useless.

You cant run either of those cpu's in a mini itx case unless you are going to use it as a stove as well.

Do you live in an Igloo, by any chance?
Coupla sheets plastic, that could work.

personally i would be looking into the 3 parts apps for your revit software and take advantage of a gpu's power to do what it does best. iRay, Octane, Indigo.... they will enable gpu acceleration on revit and with the right setup... something like an nvidia gtx760 with cuda acceleration will be upwards of 20 times faster in revit than dual intel xeon processors could ever dream of being. you will save yourself so much money and time this way.

rendering, autocad, revit, blender, photoshop, sketchup etc..... they are all switching to gpu acceleration nowadays and you do not need a quadro/firepro to do it by no means. i believe many prefer the entry level quad core i5 and an nvidia 650ti and up.

okay so just forget about the mini itx case and the other things, they can be changed easily. i haven't bought them yet. so what's your answer now?

The i7 4770k will be better. Get the non-k version if you're not planning to overclock.
The FX 9590 is just an overclocked 8350 (which is essentially an overclocked 8320) - they're not worth what you pay for them.

That's a very nice build you have set up. As mentioned before though, that won't fit in a mini-ITX.

thanks for the answer! but i've watched some videos and they can fit them in. here it is:

but do you think i can overclock? maybe at least 4.2ghz? im planning to buy highest cfm delta fans available (i dont care about noise) what do you think?

Ah ok, I thought your motherboard was ATX - if it's mini-ITX then it will be fine. I'd say 4.2 would probably be your high end in a mini-itx build, bear in mind I'm not too knowledgeable on them. They have less space for airflow and the motherboards are not always intended for overclocking, that one might do just fine though being a ROG motherboard. You can always test it and find out, since you're getting a nice CPU cooler too.
