Description

This computer was my first build, I'm really enjoying my it so far! I usually use my computer for gaming, but it works really well when rendering out images and animations in Cinema 4D, I haven't tried it on Adobe After Effects, but I expect it to work well. So far, I have had minimal problems. I've put a list of some of my FPS rates on high quality (except minecraft is lower quality) when I play the games that are installed on my computer below as a reference. Since this is my first build, I would really appreciate it if you guys left some feedback. :)

Minecraft: 230-650

Assassin's Creed III: 38-50

Dawn of Discovery: A solid 50

Why not get a FX-6300? It uses AMD's newer Vishera architecture, which performs much better than first-gen FX, and costs about the same.

It's possible he purchased these parts before Vishera was launched, and there's also the fact that AMD has some serious naming issues they should address.

I agree with the naming issues, that's just one more thing that Intel has over AMD, with Intel you know exactly what you're purchasing, due to the precise yet simple naming code. With AMD's FX and A-Series you really have to look into them to determine what you're buying.

So should I consider Intel instead of AMD, or is that just your preference?

Intel generally performs better in many tasks, although they do cost a lot more, at a sub-$200 price AMD is still the way to go.

intel has much better single threaded performance. with amd you can get better multithreaded performance with a cheaper cpu. most of the builds on here are used partly for gaming and the intel cpu's are better for gaming because of the single threaded performance. thats why most people will suggest getting a intel cpu. looks like you use content creation programs so amd isnt a bad choice if you get the right one.

Don't forgot AMD's Piledriver-based Athlon IIs :P I really don't want to go off topic here, but let's just settle that naming's only one of a myriad of problems AMD has currently.

Didn't know those existed. After some research, they may be something to look into if they come in at a sub-$100 price point, though putting these under the Athlon II name is going to confuse the hell out of people.

I did consider this as a choice before, but, this CPU was on sale, so the cheap side of me jumped at it. lolz >.<

If it was a good amount cheaper than it was worth it.

The original price was $155 (from my dealer) but I got it for around $84 seems to be good :)

Nice price on that then, very good choice over any other option in that price range.

Not really, an i3 would've been a better choice.

Everything is nice! Except you could have gone 8 gigs of RAM and gotten a 7850, or 7870 GPU... That ones seems... Unusual. I just heard the performance to price ratio is bad... But that's probably it

Thanks :), well, I can consider that next time I build a computer, thanks for the feedback _^

I thought MC only capped at 500 fps...

  • 79 months ago

Nope, not sure if it was fake or real, but I've seen FPS at 2254

Its not possible to cap FPS at a max unless its vsync but that doesn't go to 500fps.., but i don't see how you are getting 650fps on a 650ti to be fair, minecraft isn't that optimised, unless you are quoting some stupid peak.

  • 79 months ago

That is just the maximum that I can get. Doesn't happen very often.

Minecraft is much more CPU than GPU intensive. That processor could get what he stated easily.

Minecraft without special tweaks like optifine doesn't support multiple cores. Plus it's RAM, not CPU.

I have a 3570k and a 7850, i get ~200FPS with peaks of around 300 i know how Minecraft runs + am an active support member for the help channel on IRC for it.

Hrmm... i remember reading that it was very cpu intesive and abiut %30 RAM and %10 GPU

My Video Settings in Minecraft are different, I have fast graphics on, Normal rendering distance, minimal particles, if I put everything highest, I get about 150 - 200 FPS.

Hows that h80i fit in there? Also those temps seem seriously high...
