Merry Christmas
Written by: sandip7ezio - 18:58 Dec-24-2014

well first of all i wish all of u a very happy christmas and an advanced wish for new year ... :) now since i got a chance to upgrade my rig .. here's a question .. should i go for FX-8350 / i5-4690K / i7-4790K ? I will spend the least on my mobo if i get the i7-4790K .. i'm also concerned about the heating issues. i have never used intel products though i dont have any problem to try it . still is it worth an upgrade if there are such heating/power consumption issues .. anyway i'd like stick with intel .. 

 

what i mostly do in pc = games, lots of multitasking(i love to make my cpu work at huge load oftenly), i do photoshop and some other editing apps.. so i nee hugely good system performance and good multitasking .. and one other thing ... i never turn off my pc .. maybe for 5 hours every 10 days .. soo wat u guyz say ? which upgrade will be more preferable ?? intel ? or amd ?

either go for the i7 4790 none-k or for the fx 8350, since you'll be doing a lot of multitasking and multi-threading and both will give you excellent performance, now the fx 8350 heats less than than the i7 4790, but it consumes about 30-40 watts more so your choice, both are great.
You should buy a good GPU with that cpu upgrade, like the r9 290 or gtx 970, both great gpus and the best high-end gpus for the money atm. Though I would go for the gtx 970, due to using only half of the power consumption of the 290, though it costs 30-50$ more. :)

well the AMD one has 125 W i dont think it will save me power bills in the long run so i'll be going with the intel one . anyway i'll be overclocking sometimes while im playing high end games so i'll be buying the K version

Merry Christmas right back at ya!
No point in getting the i5, if you're going to be doing a lot of multitasking. The 8350 is always a solid choice, but since your PC will be on for long periods of time, the i7 is recommended because of its lower power consumption and TDP. And as ExiGamer said, you probably don't need the K version, unless you're 100% positive that you'll be overclocking.

Oh, and another thing- since I don't know what GPU you'll be using, I just want to tell you this: don't be tempted by any Quadro or FirePro series card. They are awesome for video rendering/ editing and PS (well, everything's good for PS, but still) and they do have great performance on paper when compared to the gaming series GPUs, but they don't have any proper gaming drivers, so you can't actually use that kind of GPU for gaming very well, or at all, in some cases.
I'm sorry if you already know this, but I've just seen so many people that have the latest FirePro and are baffled why they can't run game X on ultra...

well i am low on budget so i'll be buying the GPU a few months later till then i'll be working with my current GPU - GT 640 2GB GDDR5 .. and yes, i'll be oc'ing sometimes while playing high end games to know my CPU max performance :D :D .. so i'll be going with the K version. after that i'll be getting a r9 270x gaming 2GB .. is that good anyway ? :D

Normally people would get a better GPU to go with a processor like that, but hey- you don't need to get one. In the end, we all get what our budget allows for.

Definatly intel,I would go for 4790(non K,still much better than 4690K and FX8350),it's got low power consumption and generaly heats less.And since it's 50 bucks cheaper than K version,you could get a good motherboard.
Oh,and merry christmas and happy holiday gaming with the new rig. :)
