Computer 1:
M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ motherboard
AMD FX-8150 8-core CPU 3.6 Ghz
128GB SSD ADATA SX900 with 1TB Seagate HDD
2X AMD 7770 HD Crossfire GPU
AMD Performance Edition 1600Mhz 8GB RAM
Zalman LQ 310 CPU cooler

Vs.

Computer 2:
z77m-d3h-mvp LGA1155 motherboard
Intel Core i7 2700K quad core processor 3.5 Ghz.
120 GB Intel 520 SSD w/ 2 TB Seagate and 1 TB Western Digital HDD space.
MSI Nvidia GTX 680 2 GB GPU.
Kingston Hyperx RAM 16 GB RAM 1600 Mhz
Coolermaster Hyper evo 212 CPU cooler.


I was wondering which build is better? I know the first one might be a bit better because it has more cores, but is 2x 7770 vs. 1 GTX 680 a good comparison?

The top one is junk. 2 low end cards crossfired is an awful idea.

The bottom build is better by FAR.

Crossfired 7770 vs 680. What a joke comparison. Second build def wins 100%

Build 2 is wayyyyyy better!! It eats build one on breakfast.

Build 2 eats Build 1's lunch. Build 1 looks like something Alienware might puke up. Build 2 looks like a much-loved enthusiast build, maybe a year or two old with a recent graphics card update.

The FX-8150 is a perfectly fine processor, and might even slightly outdo the 2700K at video editing depending on overclocks, but that's nowhere near enough to make up for the difference between Crossfire 7770s (lol) and a 680.

Those builds can't be anywhere near the same price, either. Why are you comparing them?

There is a reason the second build costs twice as much

Its an unfair Poll dude! it should have been 680 vs 2X7950

whats unfair about comparing a Ferrari with a Ford?
March 4, 2013 10:28:46 AM

trololol at 1 vote for build one. Why?
March 4, 2013 4:12:46 PM

One thing I missed yesterday [ while I was laughing so hard]

is that the motherboard in the AMD build cant even crossfire

Or at least a GTX 680 vs 2x 7870 as their pretty much the same price.
