Hi, I've been thinking about building my own computer for awhile now and I still can't decide whether I should get AMD or Intel. this is a poll, please answer here: http://strawpoll.me/6034124

Short answer:
It depends on your budget
>>
Get a i5 or i7 and if u r low budget fx 8350 and if very low budget 6350
>>
>>51397141
pretty much

AMD has the budget market covered so well that if you're not doing an enthusiast grade build you shouldn't even bother with NVidia at this point.

>paying a piece of shit company your hard earned monies
>even though they go out of their way to LOCK their cpus forcing customers to pay an extra 30% of price just for the ABILITY to overclock, grants nothing more than 0-5% increase in performance.

disgusting. how is this even allowed, let alone an option by people?

How well does an fx 6300 perform against an i3 6100?

this.
fx 8320 might not have the ipc of an i5, but it more than makes up for it with more cores, having an unlocked multiplier, and costing less.

Disgusting. How is this even allowed, let alone an option by people?

Or you could just...
>wait for Mantle guise! Wait for Zen guise, Zen will save us!

AMD: The Way It's Meant to Crash™

that's a shitty unoptimised game too.

an update literally broke the framerate for any hardware released pre 2012..

>>51397349
>have to OC it to 4.8ghz+
>have to drop $50+ on an aftermarket HSF to keep it from going nova
>have to spend an extra $100 in electricity every month to run it
>still doesn't perform as well as an i5 in literally anything outside of Muh Gaymes
>after only a single year of ownership ends up costing more than the i5 would have
>>
>>51397327
As usual, the i3 is going to have better single thread performance so if your primary purpose is gaming you should benefit more from that.
>>
>>51397327
It may beat it in post-2013 titles for gaming.

It will lose to it in literally everything else due to better IPC and lower energy usage/temps.
>>
So, when is zen? Will it have a new socket?

I've always been an intel-nvidia kek, want to try meme company now, so planning on r390 + some AMD CPU. Should I just buy r390 and wait for zen? I kinda want to buy everything now.

LOL confirmed for being a dipshit 12 year old who makes mommy pay his bills.


>still doesn't perform as well as an i5 in literally anything outside of Muh Gaymes
if you did anything other than be gay, you'd see it performs on par with the troll i5hit for every program, and even better with ones that optimize MOAR COARS

>being so upset about getting keked by faggot ass marketers you try to defend your shitty choice in a shitty company you have to shitpost and lie over the internet
LOFUCKINGL there is no hope for you faggot, stop making others lives worse and just end your own already.
>>
>>51397413
stock fx 8350 really looks like it's having trouble performing as well as a stock i5 4670k.

fuckwad.
>>
>>51397470
Server chips (Opterons) will ship to OEM's October 2016, followed by an OEM release of SoC chips in early December. Desktop OEM will receive theirs some time Q1 2017 and they supposedly won't release DIY chips till Q2 2017.

>>51397702
>i5 2500k
>comparing the 8350 to a 5 year old second-gen i5
Way to be disingenuous on the internet.
>FX8350 released October 2012
>i5 2500k released January 2011
>>
>>51397818
whoops disregard, I'm a faggot that's also apparently blind.

>>51396404
There is no reason to go AMD unless you're too poor to afford a graphics card right away (APUs on FM2/+) or are willing to toss hundreds of dollars away on an outdated platform due for a complete replacement next year (FX on AM3+).

Although, you will be able to enjoy relatively consistent mid-tier 1080p gaming for $500 or less with a four-core Athlon X4 860k on an FM2+ A88X motherboard and a GTX 750 Ti. With DX12, it should fare better than a Pentium G3258, which is only two cores.
Or an FX-8320E with two strong GPUs in SLI/Crossfire for a 4k gaming build on par with a $350 i7-5820x. But then you'd have to deal with SLI/Crossfire issues and CPU-bound games won't perform nearly as well as a i5-6600k, even with a significant overclock.
>>
8320 every time
>>
>>51397765
Fuck that shit, better to stay intel kek and buy skylake then.
>>
>>51396404
AMD is the best bang for the buck

Intel if you want to spend hundreds more to squeeze out a few more FPS

>mfw I wanted the best when buying my computer parts, within my budget
>mfw i got an i5 2400 instead of an fx 6300
>mfw the only game i still play is battlefield 4 multiplayer

Should have just gotten a hd 7950 and fx 6300 and played on mantle for fucks sake.
Instead I got an i5 2400 and gtx 670.
>you won't need more than 2gb vram at 1080p
>>
>>51397968
why the hell are all non Titan Nvidia GPUs VRAM throttled if their price is higher.
>>
>>51398001
Because GDDR5 prices were still high when Maxwell launched, but dropped enough when the R9 300 series launched. AMD might have saved enough for extra dense memory by skimping on the refresh.
>>
Hello everyone! Thank you for participating in the poll.
I've decided on a CPU, I'm going with a AMD FX 6300 Six-Core CPU, with a price tag of $155
>>
>>51398779
But you will not be able to use ddr4, how will you live with yourself, being stuck in 2014.
>>
>>51398779
>AMD FX 6300 Six-Core CPU, with a price tag of $155
Nigger, no
I could get an FX-6300 and a decent 970 motherboard for less than that AFTER taxes.

this. at those prices you should at the bare minimum be getting a 8320e

updates made gayming on bf4 without intel/2014 gpus stuttery and framedrop below even 20 fps rather constant.
