ASRock Z97 EXTREME4 and MSI Z97-G55 seems to be good mobos - check them. And yeah, you should wait and take i7 4790k (DC).
Sure, most new games support SLI and CF. But some games like Company of Heroes 2 (i was angry for that) do not support SLI/CF.
Less problems (some games do not support multi-gpu configurations). Less power usage, easier overclock. 7850 is good option too if you dont have...
Go with 770 (it's 680). Or think about R9 290.
And did you thinked about Z97 motherboards?
It was from my experience. But heavy OC'ed i5 750 can make 7000-7500 in 3DMark11 (stock 4400?). It's best CPU i ever had (for normal use and...
Rest in peace - we will miss you :(
Poland or Germany. FX 9590 i can get for just 790pln (790/3,03=260$ and i7 4770k costs about 1250pln (1250/3,03=412$).
I would think about 4790k and LC (with Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1) but... it's almost x2 expensive and mobo is 1/3 more expensive too. So......
i5 is what i need? I'm sure it's not :D
CryEngine uses easily 8 cores (100%), 4 core's is way to much compute power to hold all psychics at the...
Hello everyone! In next 60 days i have to buy new workstation. PC will be used mainly as workstation (Level Artist/Designer, Environment Artist...
Sapphire > Asus > non-ref with LC > MSI "Gaming" imho. There is still no MSI Lightning available ;p
R9 290 > R9 290X
Extra 7% performance is not worth +30% extra money... :p
Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X uses Hynix? It's a good sign. But Hynix didn't loose one factory in 2013? Thats why we have much more Elpida chips.
World of Warcraft loves CPU power :) Like other MMO's CPU>GPU. Even older PC's with OCED CPU's can handle MoP 5.4 with 60fps 1080p without drops.
I suggest non-X Sapphire Tri-X R9 290 } x2 in CF :)
1) R9 290X is not worth extra $ (30% more for 8% more performance? it's max 0,5-2fps)
We've spotted Trix, DCU2, Windforce 2 or 3 days ago in british shops.
Now TRI-X and WF are also available in Poland. I did not saw DCU2 version...
170% price for 4fps more? Only mad would buy 780ti - seriously ;p
R9 290 non-ref would be great and... cheap imho.
R9 290. "X" version is not worth extra $ (20-30% more for 6-8% more performance).
Thanks. Wow, I'm positively surprised - 76*c in furmark.
R9 290X is not worth extra $ imho. It's almost same performance for 20-25% more $.
Yup, i think yes. But Trixx would be better in OC than Asus DCU? Probably. I love Sapphire (Sapphire>Asus). But we don't know anything about VRM...
And we've got some other cards too:
DCU 2 (290X)...
MXM 3.0 A for 15'6 laptops
MXM 3.0 B for 17'3+ laptops
(MXM 3.0 can be found in newer laptops).
In Asus notebooks/gaming laptops (even GTX...
So i think R9 290 would be great idea, even CF.
For work i suggest you R9 290.
Cheap, powerful, loud (i suggest you case like Fractal Define R4...), hot (you can always apply new...
Christmas coming, thats why. :P
After New Year it should drop to 500-520 (ref. coolers) and 540-580 non ref.
