there is no ssd in this build
if you don't have an ssd, and you have a low amount of ram, you're going to have a lot of hitching

almost all games stream in data as it's needed instead of preloading anymore (thanks noram consoles)

excessive hitching is much worse than low framerate
have sufficient ram to reduce hitching problems


you're more educated from using my post
now apply it to your future endeavors

Call it stuttering, and keep in mind that having low amounts of RAM usually won't cause it, it usually just crashes when you run out of RAM. The reason you get more is because some games are using more than 4GB, as well as for performance increases in non-gaming applications, usually related to video editing or other media work.

I've already included the price of a KB+M (>>258618790), so yes, we will include the cost of online on PSN.
These machines are looking to play the same games, and if I can play BF4 online on that PC and not on that PS4, then they're not comparable machines, and they need to be as comparable as possible.
PS+ remains part of the price.

That's bullshit and misleading. It's still a great CPU unless you specifically need a dual-core processor for certain applications. For the vast majority of people who are only using their computer for gaming, office suite applications, web browsing, video playback, etc. it is very well suited to usage without problems.

Also keep in mind that no PC will last more than 3 years and still be "okay". Even the best computer money can buy today will be shit in 3 years.

How many people are going to be using the G3258 for those types of applications?

How fucking retarded are you? If you are into editing and rendering which takes advantage of a quad core processor and hyperthreading, then you are likely going to buy an i7.

>Even something like the FX-6300 will perform much better in pretty much every single application outside of gaming, and for only $30 more, there's no reason to get that low-end garbage.

For games, however, the G3258 shits all over the FX-6300, and since this is /v/, video games and not /v/, photography, film, rendering and compute, the gaming potential performance is what matters.

You are not going to run into problems with normal desktop applications using the G3258. Cinebench benchmarks aren't for normal usage, they are for specific applications.

AMD a shit for anything aside compute.

"Whatever PC you buy, whether it is for $800 or $4000, will be obsolete in a few years. Buy a good PC, and when it becomes obsolete, buy a new one.
Future-proofing is impossible. You can buy something that will be "ok" in 3 years, but you cannot buy something that will be "the best" by then, or even "really good.""


So there you go. PCs run out of steam faster than consoles and need to be upgraded more. This is common knowledge.
>>
>>258612164

Console gamer here (actually idort because I have multiple good desktop and laptop PCs for all PC platforms too, I just don't prioritize PC gaming because it's not my style).

Here is my beef: I hate HDDs. Once I went SDD, for OS and apps, I couldn't go back. Considering I use PC for more than just gaming I prioritize having a good SSD over a GPU anyday. The gaming performance won't be as good, but the overall performance will be awesome. Integrated graphics can easily play most PC games out there. If you want to play intensive shit like Star Citizen or Arma3, you probably should buy a better computer than that anyway.

>How many people are going to be using the CPU for those types of applications
These people are literally what the fucking discussion was about, about the quality of the CPU, you tried to claim it was good for non-gaming applications, which is false, then you tried to go back and say it doesn't matter because it works for games, which the FX-6300 also does in an equal or better manner for a slight price increase, and performs better in non-gaming applications.

Bottom line, the FX-6300 is better than the G3258 at a slightly higher price point. The G3258, again, is good for budget builds that exclusively game and do nothing else, this is not a bad thing, however you are wrong for trying to claim that it is good for other types of applications, or that it somehow stomps on the 6300 in games, it doesn't. Especially considering the Pentium is only good when you overclock it, and overclocking the 6300 to an equal degree pretty much invalidates any supposed stomping the G3258 may have done when comparing OC vs. Base

It will NOT become obsolete in a few years, though. My GPU was released in 2012 and I'm not looking to upgrade for at least another year or two. Even then that will be only due to going from 1080 to 1440. My GTX 660Ti will be able to play games at an acceptable level for probably another four years.

My CPU, i5 3750K will likely last another five years before I feel the need to change it.

Hell I could spend the next decade playing hundreds of the PC games made after 2000 which I haven't played yet, at max settings with a bare minimum of 60 fps, without even bothering to upgrade.

Don't quote logical increments like it was some form of religious text, and take the quotes into proper context. Or else you come across like a retarded consolefag.

The whole concept of "master race" is retarded and you should be ashamed.

PC is an all embracing platform that will give you good games to play no matter how much money you spend on it, and the real reason why it is superior is simply because it is diverse, massive and full of freedom.

I mean, you can't even write your own games on the consoles, but you can write games for almost all consoles using a PC, including the very obscure ones.

That's not really an issue, in practice it ends up costing $5-10 at most, especially when you take in to account the savings over Nvidia, it's even more irrelevant. Plus, the only cards that actually have heat issues are the R9 290X cards, and that's exclusive to the reference card, any aftermarket cooler can tame the beast.

The best part about it is that no matter what computer I get next, it'll be quite an upgrade. Unfortunately, I barely play any games on it, and the only next-gen title that has me truly excited is MGS5, which I can still play on my PS3 instead of forking out 400 for a PS4 or the ~900ish to play it on a PC at superior settings to that.

>>
>>258621010
>someone on the internet said so, he must be right
>>
>>258634608
No, this comes from a misunderstanding as to how they work. An SSD can only be written to so many times before it dies out permanently, that said, the amount of data you can write to it is often 10 to 20 times the capacity of the drive. SSDs also have no moving parts and will therefore live much longer already.
>>

Even cheap SSD's nowadays will last a very long time.
>>
>>258635043

>>
>>258635550
>the amount of data you can write to it is often 10 to 20 times the capacity of the drive.

A lot more than that. I know people who regularly write tens of GiB of data on a daily basis, to and from their SSD's. If it was only like 10 to 20 times, say, a 125GiB SSD, the drive would fail in months of heavy usage.

Shouldn't you be looking into sound cards then? I know some of them are rubbish, but I highly doubt your motherboard has a better integrated sound system than most of the sound cards out there.

The board is a Z97 ATX board for $130, on a socket which Intel is using for Broadwell.

It's a great chipset for stable overclocking, has an 8phrase cpu power socket, decent VRM. The Asrock extreme4 is probably better, but either way it is a great mobo.

>>258637141
This is the Devil's Canyon unlocked Pentium. You can't get a CPU for only $30 more that overclocks and performs better than the G3258.

The reason why people have been raving about this CPU is how fucking incredible it overclocks.

Look up the fucking CPU you are talking about, because your ignorance is showing.
>>
>>258637460
That's actually wrong anon
The FX-6300 is $30 more, and OC's better.

I'm going to go and call your bluff here mate. If you were into producing music you would be getting a decent DAC, not a fucking sound card which is not only digital but still suffers from motherboard vibrations.

>>258637334
For what? Playing video games?
If you ask me: no.
Your CPU is overkill, and you might reconsider buying a better GPU (with the money you save on your CPU).
In case you want to keep that i7, I'd get a better CPU fan, a 20 $ is not good enough. Once again, I'd downgrade to a i5.
The Hyper 212 is the recommended CPU fan for anything below 50$.

Alright, managed to finish the build before the thread died, here anon. Performs better than yours, and costs less.

Think about getting an IPS screen, these are nice.

>>258638319
Ah, it's a bit more, but seeing as how it performs better when overclocked, and offers support for games that use more than dual-core CPUs, so yeah it does represent same, or even more value.

That's bullshit. Most games and applications are heavily single threaded and in single and dual threaded applications, the Pentium overclocked wipes the fucking floor with the 6300.

If you are going to be using applications regularly enough that you need a quad core, then you aren't going to be buying the Pentium in the first place.

This Devil's Canyon CPU has better value for money when it comes to performance in gaming, than the FX 6300.

Not only that, an overclocked G- has far less heat and wattage compared to the FX 6300. You are going to not only need better cooling but a better PSU.

Overall the FX 6300 just isn't as good value when it comes to gaming, as the Pentium G3258.

Anon, then why is it that I was able to prove better performance in the 6300 over the G3258? Not to mention, you also gain quad-core support in games that the G3258 can't offer. The increased heat and less wattage is irrelevant as the benches I provided are at the same clock speed on air, so heat is a non-issue, and the voltage is both so little it doesn't matter, and you can decrease the voltage a CPU uses in the first place, and it costs next to nothing for higher wattage PSUs, so heat and energy is not a concern in this case. Other CPUs are irrelevant here as well, this is between the FX-6300 and G3258 man, don't get off track.

Fuck yourself cunt. Don't go around making obnoxious claims if you can't back them up. Four games out of the hundreds of games made in the past 10 years is an outlier. A statistical blip.

Well considering anon has listed 4 games, one of which is a port, another is a game which ruined the series, another is a game which was poorly optimized for pc, and another which is a last gen multiplat then yeah, I will be over here getting a stable 60fps+ on these hundreds of games.

Those 4 games out of HUNDREDS OF GAMES, are nothing.

Stop making a fool of yourself. The claim as MANY GAMES NEED a quad core to be able to play.

4 games out of thousands is not many. 4 games out of the games made since even 2006 is a statistical outlier. As in not many. As in not even a few. As in you made a claim and failed to back it up.

Alright, then you make a list of no lesser than 19,000 titles that are capable of running on dual-core setups, otherwise your argument is invalid.

Uh huh, got a problem? Can't run 'em on dual-core setups, not to mention most of the titles that DO run, run like absolute shit because it's bare minimum requirements, which are not capable of running a game at resolutions and settings higher than sub-720p, low settings.

You can actually, see >>258641324.
Also pic related.
And SR4 is actually really poorly optimized, so it only properly takes advantage of about 2 cores.
Just because the processor only has two cores/threads doesn't mean games that recommend 4 cores/threads won't run on them.
It's all about how well the processors perform as well as their architecture.

I don't have to do anything, because I DIDN'T MAKE A SINGLE CLAIM.

>Uh huh, got a problem?
No, I don't. That's the point. With the thousands of other computer games I am able to play at 1080@60fps+, these 4 do not impact me at all. However, the claim was "many games need a quard core to be able to play".

How is 4 out of thousands "many"?

Fuck off. If it isn't you, you have no need to comment. It's that simple.

>Not to mention it doesn't change the fact that some games don't run on dual core setups
FOUR GAMES HAVE BEEN QUOTED. FOUR GAMES OUT OF THOUSANDS OF GAMES AVAILABLE.

To put that into perspective that is like saying you should buy snow chains for your car in case you want to drive across the French Alps.

It was, as demonstrated, a very unsound statement.

If you're wrong, you're fucking wrong. It doesn't matter how "mad" someone else appears to be. It doesn't change that fact that talk shit: get hit -in a rhetorical sense.

Well like I said, I'm going off of sys requirements here, I don't exactly keep a dual-core on hand for testing in case a discussion comes up. That said, keep in mind there are definitely titles that refuse to run on dual core, or suffer from serious issues in doing so.

Although all of this deviates from the main point, that the G3258 has some advantages, as well as disadvantages in comparison to the FX-6300, I don't see what the big hang-up is over the dual core thing.

Four games out of the thousands of games available isn't "proof" supporting the statement that "many games need a quad core to play".

And also disregarding the original point so again, this whole things is moot and I don't get why the other guy, and you if you happen to be doing it, are getting so ridiculously hung up over one single aspect of the original argument.

According to sys requirements yes, but in real world from what I've seen, it's all up in the fucking air, some do, some don't regardless of what they say, some run so bad it doesn't change jack shit that they run in dual core, who the fuck knows man. Computers.

Proof doesn't exist outside of mathematics or the act of proving in bakery. Evidence is not proof; there is a fundamental difference in the logic involved.

I don't understand what anon is so desperately and pathetically avoiding admitting he/she is wrong in the claim being made. Instead of trying to make sorry appeals to emotion, all they have to do is put their hands up and say "okay, it was a stupid statement. I was wrong. Let's move on", instead of trying to defend this statistically absurd position.

>>258642793
>vocab

You mean reasoning. It is a rather damning sign when you try to present a statement as fact only to have it undermined by the logic expressed.

You must be fucking desperate to avoid admitting making a stupid claim. This is almost as bad as when consolefags try to have a shot at trying to rhetorically make pc gaming appear to be worse value compared to console gaming.

Cpu bottleneck for normals is just a buzzword and an artificial requirement hysteria.

These threads tend to be biased as fuck as it depends a lot on your budget and the prices of where you live
In my country the gap of price between Intel and AMD CPUs are much bigger than the ones I see on american builds, to give some examples: the G3258 is 60€, while the FX 6300 is 88€ and the 4670K is at 195€
Intel's mobos are also generally more expensive
But if you are an amerifat it would be retarded to get an AMD CPU since you can get i5 dirt cheap, at least unless you're on a very tight budget

You go APU only if you are going to use the APU. If not, it's better to get normal budget cpu and video card, and upgrade the cpu with the best there is when the socket's life is about to end and everyone is clearing the stock.

Depending on what your existing machine is you can drop the case and HDD, and even the psu.
>>
>>258651596

Maymay.
Slap powerful GPU and even C2D at around 3ghz won't break a sweat.

If something's cpu bottlenecking then the problem most certainly isn't in the cpu.
