>implying Im retarded enough to buy a housefire CPU
Athlon 64 3500+ together with a FX5200 128MB. I had no idea what I was buying. But it played stuff like CS, Doom 3 or Oblivion (in 640x480 afair)... Oblivion was the point where I (sadly) upgraded to Intel C2D.

AMD 760K Richland Quad-Core 3.8 GHz
still use it on my linux rig, currently using a 4690k in my main rig
Even running multiple programs they often utilise 1 or 2 core at most and for gaming not much utilises that many cores, yet at least. Its still a good cpu thats very fast for the price. Its not an issue with the cpu though
Have you manually prioritized your programs?
I set my games to run on 0-3 and set all the other background shit for 4-7 and it ran beautifully.
It takes time to setup all your programs but it's worth it.
Either download RunWithAffinity to make life easier or manually modify the shortcuts you use to open programs and at this to the target line.
c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" /C start /affinity 5
(or whatever core number).
This method only works if the program is opened via the shortcut.
I put this cpu in computers for people that haven't complained.
Maybe the problem is you're too fucking stupid to make the correct decision on what you need for what you intend to do? just maybe.
Why cheap? At the time when I also bought my phenom 2 x4 965 I'd say it was waaaay more competitive than anything Intel had. It outperformed the quad CPUs and the new Nehalem i5 at the time offers d marginally better performance with much higher cost. Everything changed with Sandy bridge. Up until then AMD was pretty good imo
X3 455 in May of 2013 as i needed to finish my paper. Unlocked 4th core, TDP went 125W, locked it back, so summer wasn't hot.
Btw, i'm still using it with comfy 5670.
>GRID2, Rocket League, ToS, old battlefields and such without a flaw
Never bought one new
Last one I actually bought was probably some Athlon 64 from the recycler when I could pull CPUs and pay by the pound
Last one I got was a free K6/233 Compaq shitbox from a guy
I have an x6 1090t still in use. (On my second pc) replade on the main with a 4970k Also had a 5870 replaced recently with my first nvidia vga, a 980.
Nice upgrades in paper, but on my everyday use its less impressive.
The last one I got was the amd x4 965 processor. Just recently got my first intel ever. Feels weird man. Especially since my first computer had the amd k6-2 processor and I have essentially been AMD most of my life(well the entire time that I have had my own computers I had amd)
8350 Not for my current computer
8350 in my current computer
There's really no point in having a super fast CPU anymore. Its more important that you have a good ssd and 16+gb ram. Also a large or multiple montior set up if you're into work flow.
I don't think I've run into a situation where I had a problem from my CPU... Actually you know skyrim was shit but it was shit for more than just that. Also at the time 8350 wasn't as far behind as it is now.
Got 6300 for potential to halfway play games/edit videos, although I usually just use my desktop like a facebook machine
>4chan, animes, music, irc, autism
Honestly I don't game. But I wanted the option. If nothing else, I know it can run Victoria II or AoE2.
Now, how well does it encode? I'm willing to wait, but haven't stress tested this machine yet.
fx-8350 for the living room PC.
I use a i7 5820k in my main.
I bought it at a really weird time though. Just a couple months before the 7750 became cheap.
I think you accidentally clicked on /g/. This is a place for technology-related discussion. If you just want to shill and do one-liner shitposts, this is the appropriate place >>>/v/
I'd go for 1150 or 1151 or wait for AM4 currently. AM3+ and FM2+ are both dead, so you'll be more locked down on upgrades when going on a budget.
