  2. ^Brilliant.
  3. thanks for the reply.

    If i stretch my budget and go with this:

    mobo: Asrock H77 PRO4/MVP
    Proc: I3-3220

    is the mobo a better choice?
    is the proc far superior choice as well?

    Go with that , then upgrade to a better CPU and Graphics Card later on. Or get a Radeon 7750/7770 now instead of later. Buying these parts tomorrow.
  5. ^ not sure if trolling or noob

    that will be even better :) those are ebst for your budget, unless you want to pay more than 100 more
  7. i read that I3-3220 is not far off than G860 in-terms of gaming. the important part should be the GPU.

    I'm still getting the hd 7850 but theres a lot of version to it??? im confused.

    Powercolor HD7850 2GB GDDR5 PCS+
    Powercolor HD7850 1GB GDDR5
    Sapphire HD7850 2GB DDR5 OC Edition
    Sapphire HD7850 1GB DDR5 OC
    (this are the only GPU available within my price range here in SG. which one is better?)

    I'm already stretching my budget for this.

    mobo: Asrock H77 PRO4/MVP
    CPU: I3-3220
    GPU: any of the hd7850

    this 3 will cost me around 400USD already.

    is Asrock H77 PRO4/MVP a logical choice for future upgrade?
  8. i read that I3-3220 is not far off than G860 in-terms of gaming. the important part should be the GPU.
    ^ this is correct, thats why i put it G860 the list :) but still i3 is better CPU overall

    Sapphire HD7850 2GB DDR5 OC Edition <--- this one has better cooling and high clock
  9. Not trolling, those are actually capable. Check out youtube.com/boomcraftin 's video. He uses an even worse processor. The quality is amazing. Uses cinematic mods, and still gets awesome FPS. The FX-4170 has the same performance of the i3-3220. Upgrade that to the 6/8 core and you'll get a much better build than one with an i3-3220.

    This is so troll you should be banned. A person could waste hundreds of dollars.

    considering the FX-8350 is ALMOST as good as an i3... your wrong. amd can not make a 8 core processor that can touch intel's. and it sucks twice the power...



    "The good news for folks with Piledriver-based processors is that the FX-8350 is nearly as quick as Intel's Core i3-2100 (never mind the fact that the Core i3 costs $90 less)."

    its ok to cry, i was an AMD fan boy once. then i stop'd being stupid...
