Alright bros, please help me decide which processor I should get:
- Gigabyte 880gm-usb3l with the athlon phenom x4 955
- Pentium(R) G2020 CPU with the Biostar h61m s2pv
And will the athlon cause problems for my 430w Thermaltake Lightpower with a 7790 running on it? CoolerMaster's online power calculator showed that the athlon based system would draw 318 watts with a 352w recommended psu wattage whereas the g2020 based system would only draw 252 watts.
I know this is laughable to you guys with i7 6700ks and fx 8350s ;-; but help a bro out please.
i hate lightpowers so no comment about psu... but amd systems usually lot more power hungry
i didnt find any proper benchmark comparisons... but one utube video showing g3258 vs phx4 overlocked comparison where dual core wins https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHn1nDYuEbU

dont go on cheap cpu if you play AAA games... but this config is good for games like dota 2 or overwatch i think....
7790 is okay, still... but not for too long.
I'm going to stick to 720p and perhaps play titles like the Witcher 2 and Far Cry 3 on high so that shouldn't be a problem. And the g3258 looks to be significantly stronger than a g2020, so I think I'll go for the x4. Hopefully, won't run into any problems with the power supply.
