    @Radplay What motherboard is best to pair with the 5800x that is from 180 to 220?

  • peter c

    peter c

    8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    @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.

  • Radplay


    8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    @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

  • peter c

    @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

  • Radplay


    8 วันที่ผ่านมา

    @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

    Without even watching the video to be spoiled I bet the Intel is slightly better in gaming but Amd cpu is better at everything else such as streaming and so on. The cat is out the bag. Most people prefer Amd because most people use their computers more than just for gaming. Intel is dying and that's why Amd's stock is going up because more ppl going with Amd.
