even with integrated-graphics the i3-6100 manages 30-36 fps @ skyrim: Elder scrolls V.. The
Game-debate says the i3-6100 with GTX 950 and 8GB RAM can play Elder scrolls V at 60fps-high settings..
Thats the i3-6300 you have in your list, not the 6100.
The i3-6100 is one of the best price to performance CPUs on the market, the other i3s arnt really worth the extra 100 mhz for like $50 more...
Oh my god, I had thought I had included the 6100.. there Fixed.. thanks dude, i totally agree..
If Intel had made the i3-6320 about $129.99 and the others $119.99 for the 6300 and $109.99 for the 6100 respectively, the i3-6320 would've been the best budget CPU on the market.
But no they make it like $174....
absolutely dude, thanks..
Your list still has the 6300 in it btw.... :/
Without MiR :)
This thread has been turned into a free for all of arguing and fighting. I am going to do you a favor and tell you to ignore most of what is happening in this thread and turn your attention to this build. I am going to assume that you are in the US since you did not specify otherwise. The below build will play Skyrim at 100FPS+ on ultra settings @1080p while giving you fast load times and having the overhead power to run mods/HD Textures. Additionally, while everyone is trying to build you a computer for $500 using MIR, this one is $503 with no MIR. Also, please note that this build has the highest performance GPU and the only GPU in this thread that has 4GB of VRAM(which helps with HD Textures as well as future proofing). While the SSD is only 120GB, the tradeoff for fast load times between zones in Skyrim is worth it, especially if you have an external, or would like to add a 1TB Data drive later. I encourage you to ask questions if you have them.
PS: This build will play any modern AAA title at high-ultra settings @1080p
Should do high settings no problem. And gives awesome upgrade path.
What exactly. He's playing skyrim a console game.
Yeah why he can upgrade down the road skyrim doesn't use a ton of cores. GPU Is plenty fine as it runs the game on APU in consoles. And storage is debatable he can add an hdd later.
Over budget.dont need the cooler dont need z170 mobo. Seagate drives are un reliable and your power supply doesn't allow for.much of any growth.
I'd disagree and vote for WD blue as it's only a few dollars more. Several people I know have had too many issues with the Seagate to deem it worth the risk to me.
Only if he uses MIR which means his out of pocket is still over. Cant over clock locked CPUs anymore. Seagates are not fine as new research has shown they are really high failure rate. And psu is quality fine but not wattage if he ever wants to upgrade.
True but I'm sure they will be coming updated as time goes on.
Don't let people give you flack about the XFX unit. It's a great unit.
FYI: While the older generation Nvidia cards might have done better than ATI in Skyrim. The 380 outperforms the 960 by quite a bit. Especially when AA/AF is thrown into the mix. Link - It's in German, but the charts are easy to read.
