Is honestly surprised by how cheap DDR4 ram is getting. But thats 2GB a core. Should be fine.

Honestly great looking build.

Looks like I did.

Probably because everyone else in this thread has been complaining about his non sufficient GPU.

Yee that needs upgrading pronto. Probably when he upgrades his CPU/Mobo too.

With all that Storage, Fans and SSDs taking power you might be right. But he just has a 750 TI so he should be safe?

The estimate this site gives is 370 Watts and he has plenty of overhead room.

Its also impossible for him to stay with AMD so he'll save even more power when he goes with a newer intel CPU. He should be fine.

But you do have a point. A upgrade to something more reliable might be necessary considering just how much he's invested in his build.

Oh wow. I know this isn't a current build but 1.7K and just a Fx 8350 and a 750 Ti?

At least you'll have a nice rig when you abandon AMD and upgrade that GPU. Minor things compared to the cost of your build. And with that much ram, storage and SSD I'd hate if you didn't at least plan to upgrade to a current gen i7.

Im just being truthful. Everyone knows that AMD's CPU line dont even compare to the i5s and a i7 v. 8350+ is a slaughter. Theres no fanboyism, but unless your budget is set under a certain value AMD is worthless as a CPU.

I triple commented. Seems like theres still a few bugs to work out in the new Site.

Ohh this is a late reply. I think I glanced over it a month back and had to leave for something...

Anyway if its still relevant theres no future for the FX line.

AMD is dead until Zen comes along and right now Intel's i5 demolishes AMD FX line in gaming and most applications. 8 cores means absolutely nothing when they are 8 utterly weak cores in comparison to Intel's.

They aren't even 8 TRUE cores, each core shares resources with another into things called "Modules". The 8520/50 is 4 Mods and 8 cores.

It literally does not matter if games are optimized for 8 cores in the future by that point hopefully you would have moved on to AMD's Zen or Intels Skybridge. Especially considering the FX line is already a couple years old and nearing its death.

I hope this had the possibility of helping. Even if you did decide to go for the AMD route you should be happy with either purchase.

Hm, because I've heard that the 7850K had the equivalent of a r7 250. So I was under the assumption that the 6800k would be like the r7 240.

Also, IIRC the 6800K is Clocked higher and can be turbo'd higher than the 760K.

Might as well go for the 6800K .

Its not like the r7 240 would be better than integrated graphics. Anything to put less strain on the PSU.

Looks like a program made by the same guys that made Paint tool sai?

I don't think you need anything too extreme but I could be wrong. A E3 8-threaded Xeon and a AMD Video Card (Maybe a r7 250 all the way up to a r9 270X) Would probably be a secure bet.

^ Hell even that is overkill unless your working on the most giant signs imaginable.

The most you can do to lower costs is go for the GTX 960 or downgrade from that uberkill PSU.

In all honesty-- with a PSU like that you might as well go AMD. The r9 290 is about equal to the GTX 970 and the 290X would destroy the GTX 270.

Why? The i5 would crush and then smoke the 8320. Maybe even on the moar workstation type applications.

I can list only a few apps that would truly benefit from more cores. I mean thats unless you plan to add a 270X to crossfire. But by that point you'd need to upgrade the PSU and it just makes intel a better choice with a single Nvidia or AMD card.

Finally, why 16GB for a GAMING build? That amount of RAM is worthless on a strictly gaming build.

760 isn't on the market anymoar. You'd have to buy a 960 or equivalent AMD card (280? 280X? 285?)

I disagree. This is about the precedent for a perfect build at this budget.

I hate the word but everything would bottleneck if you upgrade something.

More RAM is pointless as you cant utilize it. If you want to crossfire you might need to buy a bigger PSU. If you get a better GPU you'll want to get a better CPU. If you get a better CPU you'll need a new Motherboard... etc.

If you wan't to upgrade in the future its honestly better to just flat out buy a new rig mate.

Both are exceptionally hard. You might be able to make a cube animate if you give yourself a week to learn. Another month to learn how to design basic correctors, and then several months learning hotkeys, tweens and skeleton animation.

Untimely it depends on your experience and what your making.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Gaming/Streaming/Editing First Build"

  • 57 months ago

Depends on what you're streaming. Streams put heavy strain on the CPU so you might want moar cores from the 8320/50. The r9 265 is "comparable" to the 750 ti so you'd probably be able to stream league and play many games at mid settings. If you can fit moar into your budget I'd suggest the 8320, maybe even dropping the coolers and then getting the 270X or 280 if you really want to.

Don't Cross fire on that budget. You'd have to upgrade the PSU, MB and then the added cost of another GPU. And when you crossfire you don't get 100% extra performance, its more of 80% or so.

If you have to make sacrifices dont go intel. Get the 8320 if it helps you out on the GPU end.

Intel is probably better strictly for gaming.

The 8350 comes with a decent enuff cooler but all FX chips just run hotter than Intel's

At this point theres not much to choose on the AMDs FX line of MOBOs so just go with a Gigabyte Mobo in your price range.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "$800 programming computer"

  • 57 months ago

The i5 has 4 uber stronk cores whilst the the 8350 has 8 weaker cores. Assuming his software utilizes all the cores of the FX then it will work just fine.

Don't go more high powered than the 8350. They are just needlessly clocked higher. You can buy an after market cooler.

GPU wise I'd personally go with the AMDs as they offer higher computational performance. Something like the 280X or 285 would work.

this makes your build about $740 or so. Now technically you can go with a weaker card if your budget is a max of 800 WITH the monitor.

And everything utterly changes if we find out hes using 3dMAX or another tool to generate graphics because everything can be unloaded to the GPU for that and get massive performance.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "$800 programming computer"

Although rethinking this maybe the 8 cored AMD wouldn't be too bad. It wouldn't be as good as a i7 but the cores make up for it slightly and it would allow you better graphics and the monitor whilst remaining under budget. Maybe the 8350 and the r9 285.

I need to look up how the software he's using manages cores but this would theoretically work fine.

Al tough it would likely make the thing a bit less upgradable in the future.

AMD won't compete. They might be able to compete against the i5s in a lot of tasks but the i7s and Xeons are simply better here.

I'd suggest a i7 and then use a weaker PSU than the one Shark's suggesting.

You already seem to know what you need. My suggestion would be to make something YOU think works well. What ever we recommended wouldn't deviate much from what you've already suggested.
