What do you think of this custom PC? (for gaming and redering, budget)

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/ref=wish_list

there's the list, and here i'll say the most important components:
fx-8350
GA-990XA-UD3
gtx660
500gb hdd
600w modular corsair
corsair vengeance 1600mhz 2*4gb

I'll use the pc mainly for gaming, but i may use it in the future to render, and use some multi threaded apps (i don't believe a lot in that, but it's cheaper a amd than a intel cpu). Im not worryed about the gpu, i just cant wast more than that, and it is a lot for me. Hdd, if i need more i'll buy another, but i thought that; 8gb is fine, will upgrade in the future; and now i need your opinion. thank you :D

main question: fx8350 vs i5 3570k in rendering AND gaming

i'll overclock the cpu and gpu IF needed

More about what custom gaming redering budget
  1. For "redering", I recommend overclocking. For gaming, I recommend a better GPU.

    i have a budget. that gpu is just fine. i don't need 9999 fps. i wont see any differences between 60 and 200 (i'll do but it ins't a big deal)
    I will overlock if the performance ins't what i would wish

    But what about the rest?
  3. What res is your monitor? Your not going to get 60 at 1080p.

    :C
    my monitor (is the laptop monitor, since the money is short xD ) is something 1300*768 i think... not sure. and i have another one that is worst
    if its 40 fps on ultra on bf3 with 700p and something i'll be just fine.

    but what about the cpu? the gpu i can't spend more money. only if i get the 7870. the 7050 is to expensive as well as the gtx670/660ti
  5. For gaming, get the 3570k. For what I remember it's barley behind the 8350 in rendering and way ahead in gaming.

    but if overclocked to 4.8 will out perform the i5, am i right? and is cheaper! OMG why i am not rich? xD
  7. Yeah, of course. But what about overclocking the i5? :p Overclocking uses more power. An FX CPU would use a ton more power overclocked then an overclocked i5.
  8. hmm. ok thx :D
  9. What's your budget. I can find you some good parts.

    750€ + or less. about 650£ or 1000$
    if is from web only amazon uk

    i dont need os nor monitor.
  11. 1: you wont be able to use the laptop as a monitor for your desktop. They don't have a video input, only an output to connect it to your tv or monitor.
    2: the 8350 does well in rendering and will outperform the i5 in a multithreaded rendering app such as cinebench,
    3: to reach the thru speed of your renders you would need at least 1 more harddrive , one source and one destinations, to avoid having a single hard drive trying to read and write at the same time. Optimal setups often ask for 4 drives, one OS, one scratch, one sopurce, and one destination. See your softwares support forums for suggested builds.
