i3 6100 with gtx960 2g better?, should i buy new gpu 1kSeries to pair with i3? or buy new i5 6500 to pair with gtx960 2g? which is good?
my cpu maybe 4% WORSE but its still capable of running every latest game but i still need gpu and ram upgrades
Almost the same as mine, strangely mine is actually 3% stronger. Is this correct?
Want to change my specs , but i want to stay with the GTX 750Ti and i dont know what is better , if i5 6500 or i3 6100 , what would you recommend me?
The options are i5 6500, 6600 and 6600k.If I go 6600k Ill have to get a z170 MB and I would rather buy a cheaper one. I want to play things like new mirror edge in Ultra without problems. GPU is gtx 1060. 6500 seems to be not enough
this one or i5 6600 ? am not going for much overclock.
does it need liquid cooler or normal fan would be enough
Is ASRock B150A-X1 good motherboard for this CPU or is there a better one for around $100? I'm not planning to OC.
What is the absolute best/fastest video card for this cpu? My gfx card isn't the best but it's not the slowest either. Runs dirt rally 60fps or higher. Also want to upgrade ram eventually.
is this a best match for a gtx 950 ?
Would this be a good upgrade for me?
