More about will work
  1. Best answer
    Get the i5-2500k if you're gaming. It will perform better. Unless you plan to CF that 7850, get a Rosewill HIVE 550W or XFX 550W. Spend the extra $ for the Hyper 212 EVO.
  2. the evo is better than the plus?
  3. and what makes the intel better for gaming?
  4. It has a flat base so its easier to mount. The coolers are identical otherwise. The PSU is overkill for a single GPU. Even more then you need for dual 7850s. I also agree about dumping the FX 4xxx CPU. If this is for gaming even the 2120 would be a better idea. You can also safely dump the wrist strap. Just build on tile and touch the case before you start.
  5. what makes intel better though
  6. It's architecture. It yields higher FPS in games. Check out Tom's best gaming CPU for the money article.
  7. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265 will this motherboard work with this computer if i switch my 4170 out for a 2500k
  8. yes it will work nicely
  9. thanks i feel better now that i know that it will all work together and im probably gonna switch to an intel system after all if i can find the extra money so thanx people for your help :D
  10. FYI, AMD recently announced that they will no longer compete with Intel in the desktop CPU market. I've always been an AMD fan but if even they admit that they are hopelessly behind I must agree. Intel has won.
  11. lol yep
  12. I have an AMD 8150 along with the Sabertooth 990FX board with 680's in sli and it doesnt perform as good as an Intel setup. I just recently got a 3770K and Sabertooth Z77 and put those 680's in and it like night and day. A huge difference in gaming. If this is going to be a gaming settup you might want to think about going Intel on this one.
  13. WAIT how is the 2500k better if the 4170 runs 4.2 ghz and the 2500k runs 3.3 ghz
  14. Its not about how fast it runs to piggyback what Thomas_89 said its the architecture.

    I hope this helps but honestly if you got an 3570K or 2500K you will be better off than anything AMD has to offer at this point
  15. should i get a ivy bridge or a sandy bridge?
  16. Honestly it up to you. I was asking myself that same question a few days ago. I have only had my Intel build for only a few days. I went with the IB 3770K only because when I went to Frys to purchase my Asus Z77 and 3570K they had a 3770K in stock and the price difference wasn’t an issue for me. Alot of people will say that the IB runs hotter than the SB which is true and they will also so that the SB is easier to OC which is true as well.

    But what they wont point out is alot of people who have a SB and have it OC near 5ghz try to do the same with an IB and it wont happen without a miracle and a very good cooler and to OC that high is mostly for bragging rights and really in my opinion is useless but thats just me.
    I do have my OC to 4.4ghz and I have an H100 and that keeps the temps at idle around 32-45C just depends on the air in the room and the time of day the lowest temp I have ever had is 28C and highest is 70C and I was running prime.

    Not sure where you live but if you have a microcenter in your area they have 3570K for $189.99 and you get $50 a motherboard as well and it ends July 1.
    If your next question is going to be 3570K or 3770K (only because that was my next question when I was in your shoes) The 3770K offers HT which as a gamer there is no real use for it unless you do video rendering and application that could use the extra cores.
    But to answer your question I think you will be 100% happy with a 3570K slightly OC with a really decent cooler.

    I do have my OC to 4.5GHZ and I have an H100 and that keeps the temps at idle around 32-45C just depends on the air in the room and the time of day the lowest temp I have ever had is 28C and highest is 70C and I was running prime.

  17. ok i looked at it and i think im gonna get a 3570k and what mother board would you suggest for it
  18. Yes, it should.
  19. Yeah that will get the job done. The case your getting is the same one I was going to get until I went to the store to see it in person. Great case and looks great but I didnt like how the front panel usb cables didnt connect directly to the mobo but rather you run them through your case out the back and plug them into the back I/O panel in the back of your case so you loose 2 usb port on the rear just to make the front panel ones work. I went with this case instead because it has usb 3.0 connectors to the board and its cheaper.

  20. ok so you suggest the ivy bridge instead of the sandy bridge

    Yes I would.
  22. thanx :D
  23. should i get a p67 chipset motherboard or a z77 chipset motherboard
  24. Probably the z77 but I don't know boards that well anymore. I think there is a possible bios issue with the P6x boards and Ivy bridge. Unless you have a CPU to boot it it might not work with an IB CPU. You shouldn't have this issue with the z77. It's also cheaper and not lacking anything so I can't think of a reason to buy the older P67.
  25. You will want to get a Z77 board.
