Is there a better price/performance CPU on the market right now?
Should i overclock a FX-6300 to 3.8 or should i get a FX-6350?
What GPU should i get with a FX-6300?

Postin mah specs. The 970/980 was an amazing launch, really cool running card, everyone should consider a 970 at least.

an i3 is faster even though it has one less core

are you fucking serious?
6 - 1 = 5
the i3 has 2 cores

either you are unaware of the fx6300 core count (even though it's on the picture) or you failed really badly at maths
>>
>>273377743

>consider a 970/980

yea unless you are using multiple cards, then use the R9 series, the r9 290 scales all the way up to 4 cards. the 980 has issues at 2.

Also 20w lower power draw does not make it a better card.

Wrong, its 6 real cores that share 2 sets of resources.

Get it right..

Just like how the FX-8350 and up have 8 physical cores and share 2 sets of resources.

They are real, unlike intels hyper-threading emulation.

Don't buy AMD, their CPUs are slower than Intel's even at the same clock.
It's the same situation as with the old P4 vs A64, only Intel isn't a scumbag like AMD was and isn't putting the equivalent AMD Ghz next to its models.
Otherwise the i5 would be an i5 9999.

>>273379075

The point that the 980 runs significantly cooler than the 290x is only true if the 290x isn't set to uber and going by that bench the 980 actually runs hotter.

My own 290x (tri-x specifically) only hits 85c when massively overclocked - i'm using it at 1160 core 1475 (which is 5.9ghz) memory on air. I am aiming for 1200 core on air but I doubt I can get it stable with the sort of volts I would have to put through it.

/g/entoo here. For playing video games, an FX-6300 is just fine. Even better if you can overclock it.

The latest Intel i5's are obviously better but at the same time 2 and sometimes 3 times more expensive than AMD. When it comes to most games, the performance difference between AMD and Intel CPUs are minimal unless you plan on playing a CPU intensive game like Arma 3 or Planetside 2 where an Intel CPU will definitely give you better framerates.

If you're on a budget, stick with AMD.
If not or you plan on doing CPU intensive tasks, go with Intel.

Depends on what type of video games you want to play and what type of quality you want.

For 1080p/60FPS gaming at high/max settings right now, an overclocked FX-6300 and an R9 280X will get you that.

Mantle prefers any chip that has moar coars (which is the whole point) - but the biggest gains are had by the AMD chips. It is why in Mantle games i5's get left in the dust dust to no hyperthreading.
>>
>>273381457
Because Intel has a much better marketing department than AMD and has used it for decades now to create the perception that AMD hardware is worse even at times when AMD had the undisputed best performance. Now that Intel has essentially succeeded in getting everyone ignoring AMD they're able to charge whatever they want.

Except that the R9 290x has better scaling at 4k than the GTX 780ti (yes that's right, the 780ti loses out to cards half its price) does when it comes to 3 and 4 GPU systems.

Buying AMD is way better when you jump into the 4k regions.

>>273381567
It's been shown over and over on multiple sites that when it comes to 4k gaming AMD is winning out all around. and with the next generation of R9 300 using HBM we will see a even larger lead since Nvidia will also be sticking with out of date limited GDDR5 till about 2016.

WARNING:
to everyone who is thinking about getting an FX-8350. It's a fine CPU and has very good performance, but there's a downside to it, a MAJOR one.

Buy an aftermarket cooler while you're at it if you dont want your CPU to cook itself with the stock cooler. AMD ships absolutely abysmal stock coolers for the FX-8350.

Trust me, it's a piece of trash and it easily gets the CPU up to dangerous temperatures. Also, it's loud as fuck.

So does intel, holy fuck, both companies suck at stock coolers come on anon. At least you don't feel like you are going to crush your CPU when you put on your CPU like you do with that intel twist lock clip shit.

Even if you still overclock a FX 6300 to, let's say, to 4.3ghz, you'd still get your ass kicked by a fucking stock i3, while spending double of its power.

I'm showing a Ubishit port because you should be used on getting shitty ports for this generation. So you'd be double fucked by choosing AMD.

But if you still don't believe it, pick ANY benchmarks from here and you'll see the pattern eternally repeating.

My evo hyper 212 with a single noctua fan (p12 I think) will handle my 8320 at 4.2 - pushing it to 4.3 and then slamming the chip with something like the metro LL benchmark maxed out (save physx) pushes the chip beyond what the budget cooler can handle.

The big problem with the 8XXX (ignoring the most recent 8320E and 8370) chips is their 125w tdp. They're just power hungry as all fuck. That DOES mean heat, but it also means your board's VRM/MOSFET are getting stresses to shit. A hotter chip means more electrical resistance, meaning more stress on the voltage systems.

In short, the coolers are "OK" for running stock speeds, but even then, get a quality board. The VRMs on mine are fucking shit. Despite the heat spreader, i still had to install a small fan or else the system would throttle under load, even at stock with an aftermarket CPU cooler. Problem in my case was, the board assumed a downward facing fan to get air over the heat spreader. It's a trivial problem in the long run, for me, but the point stands.

That stock fans are "fine". Just get a decent mobo. Actually, fuck that. If you get one of the newer 95w FX-8xxxx chips you should be fine, since it is less power draw and heat.

I've got a 6350, OC'd it up a humble 4.2ghz and I've a hyper212EVO on it.

Stay's at a nice 35c even during full load.
>>
>>273383140
not really, only shitty ports require a good CPU.
Anything that's actually optimized or worth playing would run fine on a FX-6300.

lots of amd 290 and 290x models have better cooling than the 970/980 gpus so they get better temps than say most 980 models now.


I dont get the point when all these gpus and their chips are rated to work at a higher temp anyway

Who cares about power draw and heat. It's just pennies, and in what way do 10 degrees affect anything, much less you. You're not gonna keep your pc for 15 years.
Those lower power fx chips also have lower performance, just get any 8320+

>>273383353
Square just developed a completely garbage engine. It wasn't really made to be cross platform, and wasn't even good short of real-time cinematics. It was basically bootstrapped to run on PC. XIII-2 should fair better, because they planned for cross-platform from the 'start'. Mind, I still don't think it will be as 'good' as Valkyria Chronicles, but it should be worlds better than XIII.

That said, VC doesn't really do anything to merit being remotely taxing on any systems. I doubt it was even particularly taxing on the PS3 when it launched so many years ago.

Still, it does show Sega had a somewhat better engine to work with, partly because it was practically PS2 era tech with a few shaders slapped on. I won't discount Sega did a better job with the port regardless.

>Is there a better price/performance CPU on the market right now?

No. It's also a great part - Ignore the >lol AMD!!! memes.

>What GPU should i get with a FX-6300?

For price/performance, right now, that depends on your budget. You can get an MSI GTX 760 right now for $180, which is kick ass. That's roughly double the performance of your PS4. Remember the $20 mail in rebate.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127745&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

And that's the best price/performance GPU on the market by a significant margin right at the moment.
>>
>>273377454
No reason to get a 6300 now; it'll bottle neck you next generation.
>>
Are there any benchmarks of the X4 860k and FX6300? I heard the X4 860k is better because it has better single core performance but loses out to multicore stuff.
Also, I think the X4 860k is better since they have newer motherboards. It doesn't matter if FM2+ is a dead platform because AM3+ is dead too
>>
>>273384282
No it won't, you cunt. It doesn't bottleneck my 970. It doesn't bottleneck anything, and it's going to be a damn long time before anything needs a card on a significantly higher level than the current flagships.

The FX 6300 is top-tier right now
>>
>>273382646
>>273382552
so either the 970 or r9 290 msi
I don't know shit about computers but their prices are similar. Leaning towards the r9 290 since my current gpu is a amd radeon hd 7800 and has served me faithfully for a long while.
I really don't want to pay 500+ for a gpu that's for sure

I'll say this, I'm switching from 2 4GB Elsa GTX 770s to 3 4GB MSI R9 290s.

Considering the emphasis in next-gen engines is shifting from single thread performance to using more threads a 6300 is less likely to bottleneck you than an i5. The only reason to avoid the 6300 is the AM3+ socket seems pretty dead.

Its quite silly to recommend the gtx760 when it's definetly rubbish as he can get a r9 280 anywhere for less and its the faster card. The 760 is just a 2gb card to boot.

>>273385668
>That mass change won't come any time soon.
But it will have an upper limit in terms of how much the individual cores can actually be stressed, and a bottom limit on how poorly games can actually run, to a degree.

I see no reason to be concerned about the performance of higher clocked FX-6000 chips.
>>
>>273385772
it'll still get better performance
if you bought an i5, you'd probably have to spend $100 less on the gpu and end up getting a 760 which will end up getting you lower fps either way
anyway, you're an idiot for not buying a 970

It's so easy to overclock, infact I recommend it as its the same card as the 280x/7970 only with lower frequency and less compute units
>>
>>273385828
There's only 3 real cores on a 6300.

>>273386390
And they're still more than double the clock speed of consoles. They're more than capable of brute forcing the float, while still having other resources to spare.
>>
>>273379852
I agree with this guy 100%.

I upgraded from my FX6300 to a 4790K only because I started emulating PS2 and Wii games.

My FX6300 handled any game fine prior to that.

Thank you to the anon earlier who mentioned overheating VRMs with 125w FX chips, i did not know that it was an important thing to check with my motherboard.

Luckily, i have an FX-8350 with an Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 so i should be just fine as long as i dont overclock my cpu. Thank GOD i didnt choose an MSI, 90% of the 125w cpu failure horror stories come from that brand in particular.
>>
>>273387504
I normally wouldn't, but any game that is sufficiently damanding that performance will be an issue is probably going to be multiplatform, which means, ironically enough, it actually won't be all that demanding on the CPU. Again, short of just shit coders leaving their PC/Windows ports to be brute forced by way the fuck higher clocked CPUs.

GPU matters for hardware mode emulation, but the CPU is almost always the bottleneck, even on toasters.

>>273388730
AMD has always been competitive to Intel, you just can not disregard price, and even then, depending on your purposes, AMD completely smokes Intel FOR THE PRICE. Having said that, Intel far and away has the best performing chips on the market. If you're willing to pay, you WILL get better performance. It is just that the performance does not scale very well with each additional dollar you are adding to the equation.

If you don't really see any deals you like, then additionally, wait until 'cyber Monday', immediately following the weekend. In fact, just start looking for deals right now. E-retailers don't really bother with one day sales, because they don't rely on 'Door busters' like brick and mortar.

>>273390056
Not very. It is technically sufficient for most games right now, but the fact it has very threads/cores means it will not really scale down the line. It is absolutely just a low end consumer, non-gaming part, that just happens to be absolutely perfect for what emulation demands.

>>273390056
