go with the i3 so you can upgrade down the road without having to change mobo. the current amd socket doesn't look too promising. either card will be enough for standard gaming

Any option for a i3 2100 + HD6790? Would be better for almost the same price IMO.
February 28, 2012 1:47:47 AM

go with i3 and 6770

Best solution

cpu vs cpu the i3 gets it hands down by 30%
gpu vs gpu the 6770 barely edges out the 550ti

overall?

i was faced with the same choice a few months ago:
look at my sig! :)

The 6700-series are better than a 550 Ti.

HD 6790 is not in this discussion and the GTX 550 Ti can challenge that in certain titles.
HD 6790 is better though.


you have two numbers reversed . thats 6970 right?

" At the low end of the scale, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti does not convince us at the current pricing. The cheapest models are still too expensive to justify a purchase, while the Radeon HD 6790 offers decent performance for similar money."

how about sticking with a model, huh?

so what is it 6770s as it the OP or 6790s because you want to prove a point?

why the option of the 6770 when a 6870 is the same price as a 550 ti ?

4100 + 6870 will get you 3D mark 11 scores of mid 4's with overclocking

people here seem to hate AMD.

550ti = hd6770 in performance.
550ti is expensive than hd6770
so simply go with 6770 or higher.

As for cpu
if you want to use less electricity and want to get i5 in future then i3,
if you want to more performance during multiplayer online gaming and want to perform extra work during gaming and if you don't want to upgrade your cpu without changing the board then phenom 2 x4 with am3+ board is the way to go.

As both cpu can easily handle a hd6770, so any cpu will not become bottleneck, gpu maybe (depends upon details settings)

because the 'newer' line of AMD processors are weaker than the predecessors.
FX-41xx and FX-6xxx are crap.
P2 X4's and P2 X6's beat them handily.

HD 6770 isn't really worth it over the GTX 550 Ti they equal each other in many benches and yes, the HD 6870 is a better move.

people do not hate AMD or least they shouldn't.
were just extremely disappointed in it's path and performance with FX-Bulldozer.
it's the ignorant fanbois that keep on recommending a lesser chip because they either have one
and want everyone to be miserable and/or trying to stay positive about it when all reports say it's crap.
(keep hope alive)
and it can't even win in price points either.

people need to open up their eyes and see that having both companies, three including nVidia
all need to do well for us consumers to have performing units at better prices.
but AMD has basically lost the desktop market and with the release of Kepler is about to lose in the GPU section as well.
it looks better for them in the GPU section than the desktop CPU section.

the APU technology is kick-ass tho.
the processor is still weak.
calling perfectly good cpus crap is definitely not helping your case.

And that's with a fraction of the power usage of an overclocked FX-4100.

Not to mention it will leave you with an upgrade path that will actually benefit you, unlike going with the FX series.
March 16, 2012 11:09:44 AM

just go with the hd 6770 (for gaming )
if u are into video editing go with nvidia

Okay, so I can get better results from my fx4100 than what tom can..

Maybe my combo of parts work better than toms or others...

okay malmental lol

u have an i3 haha 550ti haha and a mechanical drive haha

show some results..

passmark, cinebench, furmark, 3d mark 11

No cheating ? The intel mob will cheat.. they couldn't bare losing to an fx4100

I have watched and compared MY results against i3 and i3 never wins

we all know stock standard the i3 is competitive but my combo of parts is magic..

also when my results show I win, how long until the intel fan boys says that i must have got a special cpu or some crap lol

Is an amd fanboy challenging me to a battle of cpu's? :D  I can put my 550ti back with my 2600k if you want to bench :)

Heh, you forgot to mention "or own AMD stock" :p ..

IIRC it was Triny who flogged AMD mercilessly here, because he owned 2 shares of AMD stock, or some such. About enough to buy a sandwich and a cup of coffee :D .

I think that 3D mark is perfect for scores. I'm more interested in FPS on games themselves.
a b à CPUs
March 18, 2012 3:28:04 AM

3D Mark is more than just FPS. Again, stop trying to win based on one stupid bench. That goes for the Intel side too. And no, I don't have an i3. I'm not on any side here, but if both sides are going to bicker then both sides need to do more than just one stupid bench! Both sides need to bench GAMES.

3D Mark is the quarter mile. You have a Honda Civic (overclocked, AKA supped up) vs a Ferrari. The Honda Civic beats the Ferrari in the quarter mile. Does that make the Honda the best? NO! Its one stupid, limited test. Put both in the full mile, and the Ferrari will blow past the Civic and leave it so far behind its laughable.

Now I'm not saying the i3 is the Ferrari, hell for all I care if can be the FX 4100. But the point is you can't base your win on one test. It has to come from ALL tests, or several games where you can equally test it.
a b à CPUs
March 18, 2012 3:38:48 AM

I don't believe in listening to the marketing crap that 3D mark employs. If you want to prove your FX4100 will go further out, then do some game benches. I'm not sure why you are being so difficult in this. You were given some benches that showed the FX4100 was behind the 2100, and claimed you can get better results than Tom. Great, so back it up with those same games they tested. Or other games for a more rounded approach. That is all you have to do.

The Intel side has to do the same - same games that you test.
