Thread: want to build a gaming pc

  1. #1

    Default want to build a gaming pc

    so my question is how overclocking cpu boost gaming experience .how many of you do it .Is it risky or not worthy of wasting too much money on the overclocking setup (core i5 2500k ,z77) .i m interested in building a good gaming pc with the ultimate resolution playing .so my question is without overclocking is it really that hard to achieve that goal .or a good gpu is enough with a minimum core i5 setup as most of the games are more gpu dependent .(also if you have over clocking setup what it is ,how you control temp & does it show any sign of stress after long overclocking of cpu

    1. Yes, Overclocking CPU boost gaming experience more or less. It really depend on the game you are talking you are talking about.
    2. If you want to play any game at highest res at today's standard, then you should obviously go for an i5 with a good motherboard. Remember good motherboard is not just for overclocking. It is silly to put a i5-2500 and a 7950 on a mobo like h61.
    3. You don't need to overclock if you don't want. You can play any game at high res as long as you have a high end GPU. Just make sure the CPU does not bottleneck the GPU. If you are not playing online multiplayers then overclocking an i5 will gain almost nothing.
    4. I don't overclock CPU only the GPU.

    Well running an oc'd rig 24-7 will obviously reduce the chips lifespan though it's properly cooled . But the main thing to keep in mind is that , is it necessary . If it's your braging right , than we won't stop you.

    It depends from game to game. For example, I play a lot of emulated PS2 games (playing Final Fantasy 12 right now, with my GTX 460 it looks amazing) and for such emulation, CPU speed is EXTREMELY important. I'm running my Pentium E5700 at 4 GHz (stock 2.8 Ghz, I think). At stock, I would average about 45 fps - now I'm doing a comfortable 60 in most cases. Since a PS2 runs at 60fps, this made the difference between playable and unplayable performance.

    For other games, it may not be that much of an issue, but it certainly will free up your graphics card and let it do all it can.

    If you do it right, there's very little to lose. I've known people running chips OC'd by 40% plus for 2-3 years, and it's unlikely you'd plan on running a processor much longer.

    so budget is not that of a matter .i just one to know the real use of the overclocking so that i could know whether i would really need one for my type of usage but interesting to see here that for only online multiplayer overclocking is good .i thought for any high end game to run in the optimal setting you need to overclock the cpu cz it most of the time will bottleneck any high end gpu .so i guess still i m puzzeled with the overclock thingi ..

    ya...cpu OC-ing doesnt offer much help in offline gaming...a high end gpu and a decent i5 is enough to play recent high end games.if ur sole purpose of the pc is only gaming(not multiplayer) and u wanna make it future-proof for about 2years...then get a high end gpu(like the gtx 680 or hd 7970) and get a ivy bridge i7(surely it wont bottleneck the gpu).....overclock the gpu which will give u a fps gain...cpu OC-ing doesnt help much..

    Modern games tend to not use more than 4 cores effectively.

    It makes more sense with current games to have 4 cores and as much clock speed as you can get as opposed to having as many possible threads. So a high clocked i5 can actually work faster than an i7 in a lot of cases because it will clock itself higher.
