Solved

please help this is my final choice of 2 systems but im really having trouble choosing

i keep changing my mind because something keeps telling me the fx-9590 will be a better performer for newer games utilising more than 4 cores.

but this will be final now, because i need to purchase this today/tomorrow for it to be built because it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive.

im basically buying this system to max watch dogs

  1. No doubt, choice 1 !!

    Intel 4770k > FX 9590

    HAve fun with it ;)
  2. Both can max Watch Dogs.

    Even though I love AMD, but I say go with the Intel Core i7 4770k as its slightly better and has better benchmark scores, its also only £15 more expensive, has lower temperatures and TDP.

    So just go with the 1st choice.
  3. Get the 4770k. Any game that will use more than 4 cores will most likely also use hyperthreading.
  4. Best answer
    Build 1, but get this power supply. Corsair RM series units use bad capacitors, and don't last as long.
