How are the 700 series not built without one of the key requirements to benefit from the new API? http://www.dsogaming.com/news/report-directx-12-to-be-exclusive-to-windows-10-nvidia-lists-dx12-compatible-gpus/ Nvidia says' that even the older generations like Fermi.
Titan Z still is if you are considering 2 gpu's in one and the 780/ti were really good cards themselves! Everyone should have the boost that DX 12 gives though. I mean from all I've read on the interweb, even the little mobile processors will be able to benefit.
I've done my research and not everyone with kepler cards are actually complaining. but Nvidia should update drivers for these cards to play the latest games.
Bruh, an i3 IS QUAD CORE, thanks to hyper-threading. 2 Physical and 2 logical. That's why I see 4 thingamobobs on my task manager and whatever that other manager is called!
Idk, like a lot of what you have said, Ain't nobody got time to highlight what you got wrong :P You consider gaming a way to benchmark things which is COMPLETELY wrong, games no longer stress a processor these days. That's why we have futuremark and all those guys who make those programs to put each hardware to the test. I would've kept the processor and gpu since both are good engineering and contain a lot of horsepower (which is not completely used by a game). Oh, and PC master race does mean spending thousands as well. Oh and btw u complain about 30 fps, plz I can flight sim on 8-15 FPS (which is really not that bad, it's actually really fine for my crap oem pc). I don't care too much about frame rates anyways since games are playable which is all I care about!
Lel, well if the R9 290x can do fairly well in P3D, I will consider buying one :D
An i3 is a terrific processor, if you can't spend on an i3, spend on an Athlon or fx 4-6 core or even a pentium G3258! Games are going gpu intensive so I suggest you wake up to that fact. If you are a devloper, of course you will need an i7, FX 8 core or Xeon processor. I'm that kind of guy (and pc master race guy).
Like somesaid, I would recommend a 4gb 960, otherwise this build is fine! Also, I'd kinda go for a cheaper mobo if possible since this cpu isn't overclockable. Otherwise me gusta!
oh and also one more thing : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNt_KS0UUhI Watch and see how an i3 haswell basically beats an 8 core cpu in most games :P Powered by the 960!
Oh lord HAHAHAHAHA I run GTA V low settings on my "rig" xD 30+fps and does go lower but it doesn't do it as often. Thank God for optimizations! My "rig" is i3-540, GT 730 and 6 gigs of DDR3. And God Al-mighty no do u even read benchmarks? i5's are against the 8 core amd processor and the only thing that can challenge i7's are the fx 9590 cpu! Come on man, u are the daym fool here! Why a 290x for 1080p? Hopefully u use VSR and get that up to 1440p or 4k! I have used AMD products and I love them for their value but u can't say whatever you want and call it a fact. I can play almost anything on low settings (which is still good looking imo) and get fine frames on this HP oem crap lel all but COD AW -_-, thats the one game that just freezes and then gets smooth and freezes and its annoying.
The reason why....is because I will be using FSX which is more optimized on Nvidia GPU's, tbh I wouldn't need a 960 for fsx since a 750 ti will have good enough frame rates but I wanna do max settings 1080p. If I were to do only gaming hell I would but a 290/X!
I have it already :P 750 W of power 80+ Bronze rating PSU from Antec!
Screw it LOL, I will spend on any amount and see if Intel has some competition on its back! I like Intel but I would like to see AMD kick butt again!
I slightly agree, but then again I think with a descent cooler you can get high clock speeds maybe? God knows!
waiting for Zen Cpu
I'm SUPER excited for their zen cpu's! I cannot wait, literally!
.....so you went for a weaker cpu and gpu? Du faq? For gaming, duh of course but in terms of power? You must be a fool. And also just because some of maxwells cards maybe weaker like the 970 in 4k, it doesn't mean it's any better unless you want to game on 4k, u might like the r9 290x better. I'm glad AMD released VSR though. That's pretty much all I care for now :P Oh and please, you could've gotten an i3 and a good radeon card (280 and above) and probably get somewhere close to your current rig, also do remember that games are focusing on GPU now a days. That's all I gotta say!
With intergrated? Sure, but with an actual graphics card...ehh...nahhh.
