    Default fellow named Byelso

    i'm trying to help a fellow i will imagine is named "Byelso"

    Byelso wants to reuse all the parts from his old dell as much as possable to make a gamming rig,
    on a NO buget circumstance

    this is what i have come up with

    CPU
    AMD 760K Richland Quad-Core 3.8GHz Socket FM2 100W Desktop Processor AD760KWOHLBOX - Newegg.com

    MoBo
    MSI A58M-E33 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A58 (Bolton D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

    ram
    Mushkin Enhanced Redline 16GB (2 x 8G 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model 997169 - Newegg.com

    grafix
    HIS IceQ OC H280QC3G2M Radeon R9 280 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.com

    cpu, is at performance for the penny / mobo is chosen for reliable functionality at pennies comparison
    ram is the category and chosen for Latency, then price / graphix is at performance per penny

    my point in all of this is that i want your opinion
    i want you to show me a better build for better performance, and a cheaper cost

    current cost @ 492+tax call it at 5 bills

    Personally, I would save ~$90 on the RAM and go with 8gb of a lower priced 1866 since the performance difference will be non-existent 99.5% of the time. Apply the difference to a better GPU - MSI Gaming N770 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com or HIS iPower IceQ X² Turbo Boost Clock H280XQMT3G2M Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.com

    That would be a use of that money that would be tangible. Or simply tell him to stick that $90 back in his pocket.

    that does look good at first bro
    but
    there is no way i could ever ask anyone to use a dual core
    especialy at lower that 4+ gig speed

    my bottom of the line is 3.5 X4
    anything less than that is not even worth having , let alone buying


    dude,,,even my cellphone has a quadcore CPU
    but still, i am loving the bundle idea, that actually help me broaden my mindset a LOT

    thank you for your posts!, greatly valued

    The 4150 has four threads, the same as the 760K. Its performance per thread higher. Setting a number as a low point in clock speed makes no sense at all since they do not perform even remotely the same clock for clock. Looks to me like you are shopping for numbers, not performance. So, I'm out.

    don't knock the i3. I picked one up to run on a miner. Surprised the hell out of me. runs a lot faster then I would have imagined. besides the i3 has L3 Cache and the 760k only have L2. that L3 will make a world of difference if he is trying to game with it. The lack of L3 will cause it to stutter and have lower FPS. I love AMD but for this one I would go with the i3.
