Thread: i5 3570k with HD7950 or i7 3770k with HD 7850?

  1. #1

    Default i5 3570k with HD7950 or i7 3770k with HD 7850?

    Hello guys,
    I'm building a PC and I've pretty much decided on the parts.

    CPU: i5 3570k
    GPU: HD 7950 3GB
    Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
    Case: Fractal Desigh Define R4
    Mobo: Asus P8Z77-V LX
    PSU: Corsair TX750M
    RAM: G.SKILL RipjawsX 2x4GB 1600MHz
    SSD: Samsung 840 Series 120GB
    HDD: Seagate 1TB Sata3

    My question is: i5 3570k with HD 7950 3GB or i7 3770k with HD 7850 2GB?

    NOTES:
    1) I do plan to overclock both CPU and GPU
    2) I don't use programs like Photoshop or Autocad or any other video/audio editing program.
    3) I don't intend to do heavy multitasking. More like, 10 chrome tabs, 1-2 video streaming along with skype and utorrent.
    4) I am a gamer but not a "hardcore" one. I enjoy games for their plot, atmosphere, gameplay and not for crazy graphics. As long as anticipated games like Bioshock Infinite, Elder Scrolls Online, Dead Space 3, Arkham City 2 and maybe Crisis 3 are able to run properly on medium details, fps, and res, I'm fine with it.

    So. i5 3570k with HD 7950 3GB or i7 3770k with HD 7850 2GB (for about the same price)?

    Thank you all in advance.

    Welcome to the forum. Introduce yourself here - http://banglagamer.com/showthread.ph...r-Introduction

    Now, if you go for a 1080p monitor, pick the 3570k and HD 7950, eyes closed. With that board, PSU and cooler you chose, you'll be able to OC both the CPU and GPU just fine.

    @mourla : Welcome to banglagamer. Like rk7 said i5 3570k with 7950 is the better choice here. If you are, by any chance, buying all these from Bangladesh then I would suggest getting a 660 Ti over the 7950. Both cost 33000 in UCC. Happy gaming !

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    As ridiculous as it sounds, I just realised that this forum is from Bangladesh. I thought the name was " bang la gamer". Forgive my stupidity.

    As for the GTX 660 Ti, here in Greece it costs the same as the HD 7950 (300 euros). The most expensive is EVGA GTX 660 Ti (about 320 euros) and is clocked at 1046 Mhz. 146 Mhz above the HD 7950. After all, I might consider it.

    Members all over the world are welcome here. On topic - If the price for both the 7950 and 660ti is same, I'd highly recommend to get a 7950 over a 660ti. A card with higher clock speed doesn't always perform better than that of the lower clocked ones. With the current driver support of AMD, going for a 660ti(over 7950) would not be a wise choice to make imho. Besides the 7950 is a better OCr and overall much more suited for 1080p(or above) resolution than 660ti. If you opt for lower resolution then its another case. Did you choose which monitor you're gonna buy?

    No, I haven't. But I guess something like LG 21.5'' LED E2242T 1920x1080 or something similar for about 120-140 Euro.

    As I said before, @1080p I'l suggest a 7950 over a 660ti anyday of the week. Take a look at these -

    So,it seems like the i7 HD 7850 is out of the picture. Case closed, I guess.

    Thank you for your advice.
