I'm in a bit of a dilemma, about 6 months ago i was looking into a intel set up spending a little more on the board that i have put up, now got my own house and need to skimp a bit.
Just recently i have noticed this fx6300 is losing out a little on the i5 3570, and for the lose in performance i would be saving around £60 which i can justify.
Ok the fx is a little more power hungry but not as much as the fx8*** series.
But whilst saving money on the cpu i can get a better motherboard, and my question is which would you go for?
The 6300 really looks good for the money, so really asking for people thats fan based.
Will be used for gaming bf3, sorry if posted into the wrong section. Might also post in the cpu section too.
Def, but not by alot once its been over clocked, for gaming. The price is about £50/60 cheaper too, and if the fx will over clock more stable at a higher freq with a better mobo, than a cheaper mobo on a slightly faster cpu, do you see where im coming from? Mind you i am more on the intel side but want to make sure i get all my options delt with.
i can easily get 4.5ghz out of a i5 3570k, which will smack down a fx 6300 at 5ghz, a thing that you most likely cant do. the quality of the mobo does not matter on a intel board unless you go to 4.8ghz, but by then temps are going to rocket anyways
Cheers mate. plus one to you. will get buying. do you think they will come down in price in the next few months, was thinking get the mobo now as they have came down a little then get the cpu closer to haswell launch?
