I dunno speakers and those peripherals don't add up to what he NEEDS tho MSI offers isolated audio 3.0 2x usb ports and 2x gaming 3.0 ports aswell. Also the I5 does not have hyperthreading that's really huge when it comes to gaming! Especially like me, I want to record listen to music and stream all that requires some form of higher end threading that's also to keep in mind that the i7 has 8 threads

What does the OP need?

You do not** need 8 threads for gaming. An i5 is perfect for gaming

Sir I said 8 threads for multitasking its needed simply because he can afford it. If you got the money go for it I say.

No, this is what you said:

Again please I ask you do not site people as sighting can manipulate people thoughts.

This is what is said: Also the I5 does not have hyperthreading that's really huge when it comes to gaming! Especially like me, I want to record listen to music and stream all that requires some form of higher end threading that's also to keep in mind that the i7 has 8 threads. This shows Im giving him an opinion on streaming and recording if he so chooses to. It doesn't have to be taken into thought it is simply there for opinion.

I am from Canada also! :) Anyway here is a $1600.00 Canadian build I think you will like, have a look and all the best with your build!

edit Also I wanted to mention that this CPU can be overclocked if you choose to, all you would need to do is add an after market CPU cooler and you can use BCLK overclocking to get more from that i5. Here is a video link on the subject and that benchmarks this i5 also. It is pretty impressive.

Sorry for this noob question but whats exactly is the difference between r9 390 and gtx 970? One better?

  • 53 months ago
  • 1 point

R9 390 in my opinion is a better card then the 970 due to it having double the V-Ram 8GB vs 4GB this will help the card age better. Also when bench marked the R9 390 beats the 970 in most cases and is more apparent when being used in 1440P or 4K. Here is a bench mark video comparing the two.

R9 390 is the more powerful card and offers better performance in most games at 1080p, 1440p, and 4k compared to the GTX 970.

I've got 2 questions are r9 390s better than gtx 970s atm and wouldn't i need i a faster ms response time monitor for gaming or is that just false?

  • 53 months ago

Yes, R9 390s are better for most games.

wouldn't i need i a faster ms response time monitor for gaming or is that just false?

It would help but I wouldn't go above 5ms.

From what I have researched the R9 390 is a more powerful card then the GTX 970 and is better value for your dollar, as for the monitor I was trying to give as much value as I could to your build with the budget you have to work with. 5ms response is pretty good and the price on this 27 inch monitor is excellent right now.

1080P on a nice 29" monitor. Can't overclock with the build but it still has plenty of power. Added a cooler since there was some left over, stock cooler would be fine however this one will be quieter and more powerful. Any questions just ask.

Here is an option that fits within your budget with the following caveats:

  • No OS (~$90)
  • No speakers/headphones ($1+ , depending on how cheap/crappy they are)
  • No optical drive (some will argue it is legacy hardware now anyway) (~$20)

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2NPdK8 There you go 6 months of research all for 1000+ FPS while recording in minecraft. XD In all seriousness Im buying this for streaming editing and recording. The I7 processor has 4 cores (Which Is all games really need) and has 8 threads for all those needs to be fulfilled. Will run GTA V 60 FPS with Vsync

It's a poor power supply and overpriced monitor, but otherwise it's alright. Unbalanced performance-wise.

The monitor is an all around viewer tho its ment so you do not have to look directly at it and has great if not super awesome LED lighting

Poor PSU, fans, could get a better GPU for same money, and why an R4?

  • 53 months ago

Well the R4 has great cable management and awesome airflow, aslong as they give it neutral airflow

R5 is better.

I chose r4 because of price, it is very good for most builds but if he wants water cooling I would agree since the r5 has more room for such things
