  • 6:31 well, you need that if you're overclocking at all. my oc-d 980+ r7 3800x PC with water cooling draws almost 700W at the wall, having a couple hundred watt overhead is definitely not a bad idea, plus my 1000w Seasonic Prime Ultra cost 20 bucks more than a decent 650W corsair psu so why bother going smaller?

  • If you add that for any program that really makes intensive use of the multicore Intel death the dust for a long time you end up with almost no heels to buy Intel. In addition, AMD has cheaper processors with practically the same single-core performance, and without higher multi-core performance.

  • For real-world use, that 10% performance diff means nothing, if you got a 144Hz monitor and all your games perform well above 144 fps, you're only gonna see 144FPS capped, So that extra money for the 5950x for that 10% increase doesn't look worth it, and the 11900K looks the better deal, even the 5900X is about 100 dollars more, and the 11900K performs slightly better then the 5900X.

It's bad and not a lot of people buy it "linus advertising just amd even if its crappy" Hmmm... If AMD is crappy, why does their stock sell out every time it becomes available?

  • What is best for gaming 11700k or the 5800x?!

    peter cpeter c16 dagen geleden
    • @Radplay What motherboard is best to pair with the 5800x that is from 180 to 220?

      peter cpeter c15 dagen geleden
    • @Radplay Honestly I hardly ever upgrade that is why Im thinking the 5800x might be the better choice. But then again maybe games will skip needed 8 core and go straight to 12 or 16? Then itd be better to get the 5600x now and later upgrade to a 16 core. The fact is I dont really care to upgrade ever unless theres a game I play that needs it...I play overwatch, starcraft 2, hollow knight, and games that dont really require much cpu power or even gpu...My current pc plays every game I want pretty well. Games like cyberpunk i hold off on until its fixed & cheap...I just got around to playing doom eternal & my pc played it really well at 1440p...I honestly enjoy building a new PC so its been so long since Ive built one that Ive got that itch & with the newer consoles being 8 core newer games will need it to play well.

      peter cpeter c15 dagen geleden
    • @peter c Depends on how long do you want to have the PC without upgrading. Zen 4 and beyond will be on a new socket (AM5), so you'd have to buy a new motherboard. At the same time, motherboards with this socket will most likely support DDR5 RAM, and it will take some time for DDR5 prices to stabilize. And in the future, games should get updated to utilize more than like 2 cores. The 5800X is faster in single core, so it might give you some more FPS. The 5600X is also a solid CPU. You won't lose much performance, and (if you haven't got one already) you can save the money for a graphics card, since the prices are still crazy. TL;DR If you want a better Graphics card, go for the 5600X If you want more cores and a bit more single core performance, go fo the 5800X

      RadplayRadplay15 dagen geleden
    • @Radplay the 3600 comes only in cl18. The 3200 comes in 16 on bestbuy. BTW now im debating whether to just get a 5600x instead of the 5800x. I read they are back in neck in all games. I'm guessing games don't yet utilizing 8 cores? What do you think considering they are 100 to 150 dollars difference in price

      peter cpeter c15 dagen geleden
    • @peter c Yes, that would be good (if it has B550 or X570 chipset). Also, CL16 ram would be better. Even if it was 3200/3000MHz, you could overclock it later.

  • We are all sinners and are heading to hell. God loves you and wants you to be with him, repent and trust in Jesus. Everyone is a sinner including me, we are guilty but Jesus came on the cross to die for our sins. If you read the bible and pray it will help a lot. God won’t force you to be with him and no one wants to go to hell.

  • so in CAD currency the 5950x goes for around 1149 and the 11900k goes for 739.... almost the same gaming preformance... its funny how AMD grew in popularity for being an affordable alternative with almost equal in performance to intel but now intel is taking that category in only one generation. Sounds like AMDs ego grew over night XD. Productivity though AMD all the way. However, Intel i think is the best option for gaming when it comes to value and availability
