Description

I sold my gaming computer that i build two years ago i was going buy the parts as i go along. i sold the old computer without the graphics card because i didn't wanna part with the 970 i sold it for $400 dollars. before i sold the computer i bought the motherboard, case, and ssd. i was going to buy the cpu power supply and ram next month. i was going to build it based the highest tier gaming build guide on here with just one graphics card until i got a monitor upgrade but i had to some bills so i was forced to buy the cheapest 8GB ram kit the i3 and 500 watt power supply the i got refurbished.

i use this for gaming like far cry 4 battlefield 4 crysis 3 titanfall call of duty advanced warfare.
i gonna either buy a intel core i5 later this year a haswell one or wait till broadwell comes.
it running windows 8.1 and acer 1080P monitor.

everything works well so far

thanks for reading

Your card is sagging quite bad. Try fixing that. SSD doesn't seem attached very well... Not that it's an issue: It's an SSD. You said Sub 800 build. Update the parts list?

if a pentium can handle a 970 i'm pretty sure a i3 can but a pentium can only hold a 970 at overclock

I would wait for the Skylake processors later in the year. Broadwell is just a slimmed down version of Haswell.

But Z97 won't be compatible with skylake.

I would have gone with the g3258 rather than the i3. Gotten ram with heat dispersers.

An i3 will beat a G3258@4.6GHz, plus some games won't even run on a dual threaded. FC4 won't even start on a dual core without hyperthreading, and Dragon Age Inquisition doesn't play nice either.

good luck with cpu heavy games becouse even when its overclocked framedrops are just horrible like ryse:son of rome or gta 5 is fine but it wont be better than even the i3 i3 is about 10fps ahead on gta 5

I agree, the i3 has been in a really bad spot recently. Maybe Intel will up the memory controller on the next version of the G3258 to 1600mhz and enable hyperthreading then place it as an unlocked i3, I doubt it but one can hope.

What we really need is an overclockable i3.
