  1. A little, but not horribly except in extreme multiplayer like bf 3&4 64mp. What games do you play? Is the Athlon overclocked?

    I'm planning to overclock, or buy an x4 760k and then overclock that. . I'm gonna be playing Crysis 3 on high settings, and BF4 on high settings. And Bioshock Infinite on Ultra.
  3. Best answer
    That GPU and cpu will not max any of those. You would be looking at an overclocked i5 4670k or i7 4770k for BF4, a bit less for the others. Crysis 3 on high would eat the 270x though, you would need more like the 280x or GTX 770.
    Overall, to play these games on high you need a beast of a system.
  4. Oh, with mantle BF4 won't need that much power, so a mid level i5 will do it. Sill though, those are hardcore games.
  5. Actually your wrong I have the r9 270x with a amd x4 athlon 750k and I run on bf4 on ultra and some other games on high no issues.

    Overclocked? Using mantle? 64mp?
  7. Yes I slightly over clocked. My CPU is running around 3.7 GHz GPU turned the speed up to 844. I haven't updated to the newest beta mantle drive they released. But if you wanna see a similar build that I'm using with some slight differences check out Austin evans $600 budget build 2013. I used a different memory but this will ballpark where you might be for graphic settings. What you wanna use is it to you but I haven't seen a bottleneck personally.
  8. I'm just saying I've never seen ultra on 1080p on a 7870, especially with that CPU. Even a i5 4670k chokes on mp.
  9. whats ur current configuration?
  10. I'm not providing links I'm hurting right now just gonna type the quick version. Sorry for my attitude but its one of those days.
    CPU amd athlon x4 750k
    Mobo MSI fm2 -A75MA-E35
    GPU XFX black edition R9-270x 2gb on best buy for quick look.
    Stick memory Kingston hyperx blue 4gb 1600Mhz
    HDD Western digital blue 1tb
    SSD Evo 840 250 GB for games and os
    PSU corsair CX 500
    OS windows 8.1 64 bit
    3 corsair fans in the case also
    Stock CPU fan with all this I stay under 45 C running bf4 I hit 42C. I'm new to building a PC but I did a butt load of research for this build. Not a expert but this does run most games at high or ultra no issues lag of Nada. Also if ya want check out the video I mentioned with Austin Evan he has the same build slight differences. Then you can make your call on bs or not.
  11. Also missed the mp haven't tried mp I can log on and give it a go to see if I can run max setting on a 64 mp match. But ultra not sure.
  12. seems alright. maybe overclocking cpu copuld help. hyper 212 evo for 30$ would help u achieve this.
  13. Yeah but instead of that I would use the nocturna one its ugly but better from what I've seen. And yeah I could oc it to 4.GHz but personally I'm fine with the setup. But if this answered your question make sure to click solved. If ya have any other questions just lemme know.
  14. what noctua cooler u wanna use^
  15. http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=N82E16835608043 was looking at this one. Need to make sure I have enough room with my case though if it won't prob add that to the list also.
  16. Just a quick thought-- Try upgrading your RAM to 8 gigabytes if you can
  17. Im running a GeForce GTX 760 with the AMD Athlon X4 (NOT II) 760k, and its friggen awesome. I'm able to play GTA IV With gionights ICEnhancer with settings max, and get an average framerate of 30 -60 FPS c:
  18. @DarkAddo Yeah, 8GB will help ALOT.
