I have my own PC which consists of a i5 3570k oced @ 4.1ghz , gtx 580 Oced, 16gb kingston ram, ssd , etc etc. But this computer is for a friend who wants a budget " gaming " computer for 600 dollars including win 7 OS.. He told me to get him one built and I have no clue what to make him for 500 dollars.. :cry:

i "cheaped out" on 4 Gbs of RAM but COD BOII does need that much along with a 1 Gb card. i haven't seen more that 800megs of Vram used with all the settings cranked up for me.

please, any i3 stomps a FX-4100 in EVERYTHING; including when overclocked.

however eh OP is going to wish they bought an FX when they realize they got an AM3 motherboard . .

not really, the i3 is alright, but when overclocked the fx can beat it in multitasking and in gaming.

were talking about i3 here not i5,

i really hope he dint order that am3 mobo,

ah, your AMD mantra of moar cores is showing. your point has a very large fallousy; the AMD cores are not nearly equal to intel cores for efficiency and even the most ardent AMD fanboys admit that.

wow! deja vu of several past discussion from a year ago . .you must be new.

im not new ive been on toms hardware longer than u, i agree for gaming it might help, but u got 4 physical cores versus 2 hardwarecores and 2ht cores for the intel i3,

i really do prefer 4 physical cores, also i own an i5, lol

so im not a fanboy of amd or intel, just saying amds still got good budget chips for the price.

January 15, 2013 2:04:49 PM

Nope the FX 4100 have 2 "bulldozer" modules. A module is a cluster of 2 weak cores

actually all FX series CPU's have modules none are true physical cores because its a cluster of weak cores.

And core count doesn't really when the chip itself lacks IPC performance

wel its 2 physical modulesx2. to be thats 4cores.

regardless if part is software,

not talking about the amount of time but . .well let me explain it this way:

first you post a build with an i3 and a third party heatsink, which an i3 doesn't need, then you post an FX-4100 without a third party heatsink and talk about overclocking it when a heatsink would be needed.

so what are you? new?!?! (now do you get it?)

for gaming, which uses 4 or less threads, mostly less, an i3 is a great cpu. the execution of the instructions is far better than a bulldozer chip. again this has been has been show consistantly for the last year, do some research! to compare each other and say moar cores are better is ignorant.

the OP asked about a rig to play COD BO2; a game that doesn't need a four core cpu. so now you want to defend/promote the choice of a 4 core cpu???

dude, get your head in the game . .

and btw, i can state what an i3 can and cannot do since i gamed with one for several months.
Undervolting i3 2120 (the only "fun" there is) <-- proof because any one can say they own anything on these forums . .
i also had several discussions with quad core fanboys whom wanted to arrogantly state that you needed a quad core to game . .what a joke i saw a minor increase in FPS after i upgraded.

u dont need 4cores but blackops2 does run better on a quadcore its been stated.

i just dont like stock coolers i find they cool bad, and every aftermarket cooler is considered third party :) , and i find that overall the fx is a better deal, but hey we can have are opinions shall we.

ok have a niceday mr.looniam

and flicking a small link to a benchmark means nothing.

no i meant 1 review isnt enought to justify to backing an opinion, a few reviews of cpu usage within blackops2 would be useful.

I'm not sure what you're arguing. The benchmarks showed i3 performing within a few FPS of quad-core or higher CPUs. One of them even specifically said:

Quote:
Since it’s a DirectX 11 game, Black Ops 2 won’t be needing a powerful CPU. Based on the requirements, the game will run fine with an Intel Core2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHz. As long as your CPU has two cores (Black Ops 2 won’t start on single core CPUs) it will run the game.

CPU usage is extremely low and even with just two cores enabled on the i5 2500k there is absolutely no bottleneck, no frame drops or anything along these lines.


I don't see the 4100 on the benchmarks at all. I suspect the i3 as listed would blow it away.

i was speaking in general for multitasking, i know in gaming the i3 is superior, im just saying 4 physical cores, or 2physical cores+2module cores is still better in my opinion than 2hardware cores+2htcores for heavy multitasking.

i never said i3 wasnt better in gaming im speaking value wise.

Maybe, but most people here are gamers. People who want to use the CPU for more intensive tasks like video editing would be better off with more cores, but at the same time they'd also be a lot better served with a high-end CPU like the Sandy Bridge E or Ivy Bridge i7. (Or an equivalent AMD)

tru that, i was just saying my personal opinion on the fact, i am a power user so yeah, maybe im somewhat bias.
