hi guys i recently choosed i5 760 for my new rig , but because i choosed ATI 5850 too , somepeople say GO for AMD for Get rid of matching Problem . because AMD matches with ATI .
When i saw AMD & Intel i5 760 benches . i5 760 beat many of them , only some of them were higher than i5 760 But when i went little lower pages i saw that i5 760 acts better in games ( MUCH MUCH better )
Now question is : is i5 760 2.8GHZ good enough for ATI 5850 , will i have problem in performance ?
If i were you i would go with INTEL as the new range of intel processors are very powerfull i see you have chosen the i5 as your INTEL processor which is very powerful if you have the extra money buy the i7 980 overall AMD is good but not As powerfull as intel is i5 or i7 would be the best choice depending on what games you play or if you do video editing? but if your looking to upgrade processor just for the gaming why not think of upgrading graphics card first then doing prosessor?
Honestly, either one is fine. While INTEL is more efficient than AMD clock for clock, they both come pretty close in terms of gaming. I'd say your video card matters more. Go AMD, save the money. Perhaps invest in a 5870?
^ No worries, dude. In case you didn't know, I've had my share of disputes with your friend, dipankar (just ask the guy), which makes me familiar with his traits. That's why I intend to calm things down should a flame war begins. It's not about the BA, it's about order. Flame war is positively adrenaline-rushing, but when it gets ugly, it gets real ugly.
