Core i7 4770k or FX 9590?

So I'm making a new setup, and I'm putting A LOT of thought into what to buy and what not.

Total PC bugdet will be around 1867 dollars!!

Here is my current questions:
-Is the 5GHz worth it?
-Which has more FPS?
-Do i get better preformance pairing an AMD gpu with an AMD cpu?
-Do you notice Intel's features?
-Will games start taking advantage of the 8 cores AMD offers?
-Which is more "future-proof"?

Edit
The build I'm getting
-Asus Crosshair V formula Z
-Kingston hyperx 16 gb (4x4gb)
-R9 280x
-XFX XXX 850w

Thanks in advance :)

More about core 4770k 9590
  1. The 4770K is in its own league. The FX9590 is just a glorified FX8350 which competes with the I5 4670K, NOT the I7.

    Pairing Nvidia with AMD or AMD with Intel makes no difference. Get whichever combo suits your budget.

    Will games start taking advantage of the 8 cores AMD offers?
    No one can answer that one. Right now VERY few games use even 4 cores and its taken 6 years to get there. So personally, I would say do not bargain on the 8 core optimization.

    If you provide your budget and tell us where you are from, then we can help you with the complete build.
  2. Just one thing, are you going to do some editing/rendering or just gaming?

    Then just get an i5 4670k, it's the same thing as an i7 4770k in gaming. And I don't think you will need 8 cores anytime soon. Also there's no harm in pairing different branded GPUs/CPUs
  6. I 7 not the over hyped 9590 and BTW I AM A AMD MAN so with that said the 9590 is just a waste of money and a cherry picked 8350 chip.
  7. 400$? Like American dollars?

    Then why are you looking at high end CPUs with such a limited budget? Or am i missunderstanding you.

    Not worth the heat it put out, and you wouldn't notice it.

    core i7-4770k

    KennetRoer2 said:

    No.

    KennetRoer2 said:

    -Do you notice Intel's features?

    Yes.

    KennetRoer2 said:

    Games will take advantage of more powerfull cores. A cross between Intels core and AMD numbers.
    Core i7-4770k have 8 threads just like the AMD. Threads is what they use not cores.

    KennetRoer2 said:

    -Which is more "future-proof"?

    Intel by a mile.

    the fx 9590 is just a overclocked fx 8320.
    As for the budget the core I7-4770k will be better, and I would never recommend any of the 9xxx series.
  9. Oh wow you wont get any gaming system worth a dang for 400 bucks good luck with that and nothing in the I 7 or 9590 fx chip area!

    400 dollars for the cpu only

    He might ment the CPU alone.
  12. Could be lets hope that's what he meant but others mention it as well infact he be better off with a good I 5 4670 ... for gaming
  13. COMPLETE budget then, for everything.

    I would recommend 2x8GB instead, unless you like the look of having all the ramspaced filled up.

    850w PSU is a overkill for a single GPU, are you going to crossfire it later, if not 600w -650w should be more than fine.

    When the GPU gets sloppy I'll throw in another
    I already have 2x4gb

    Good points. Also, I recommend getting the Asus M5A99FX, since it's much cheaper than the Crosshair, and the M5A99FX will do almost everything the Crosshair does.
    And the R9 280X is really overpriced right now, so I'd get a GTX 770: same performance, cheaper, runs cooler, consumes less power and Nvidia has better drivers.

    Incase you get Intel, the GA-z98x-ud3h is an amazing board.

    When i bought my 280x it was 200 bucks cheaper than the 770,
    I also already have it, bought it for the mantle support really.

    In that case I only recommend changing the motherboard :p

    are you saying stick with the 9590?
    because reading all these replies makes me really want the i5

    if not, change motherboard to what? really sold on the supremeFX soundcard that comes with the asus ROG mobos

    No, no, no I suggest getting the FX 8320 if you're sticking to AMD, and with that motherboard, the M5A99FX.
    However, if you can, buy the i5 4670k, it's better than AMD CPUs.
    If you want a red/black 1150 motherboard for the i5 4670k, there's the referred UD4H or the Asus Maximus VI Hero, which also has SupremeFX and is incredibly good for the money.


    So, resuming:
    Intel i5 4670k for $226: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646i54670k
    Asus Maximus VI Hero for $190: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-maximusvihero

    No one can answer that one. Right now VERY few games use even 4 cores and its taken 6 years to get there. So personally, I would say do not bargain on the 8 core optimization.

    If you provide your budget and tell us where you are from, then we can help you with the complete build.


    Seeing that you're an OC Veteran++, how far do you think I'll be able to OC the i5 4670k with H100i watercooling?

    Haswell OC is all about having a good chip or bad chip.
    Good chips 4.6GHz+
    bad chip 4.3GHz or less.

    Nvm, did a quick google, and it turns that mobo is great for OC'ing, pretty sure I'll buy that then :D
