Hi guys, I couldn't find anything relevant to my question so here goes the new thread. Many many moons ago I decided I wanted an i5 4690k to get into overclocking and some serious gaming potential. I've never really got round to it because I can never warrant that much money on a system build, which brought me to pricing up a G3258 Anniversary Edition on a Z97 board, which gives me the option for that i5 later, if I want it. Then comes Dragon Age inquisition, I found that I'd pretty much need a CPU thats atleast quad core to even run it which stuffs up my G3258 build right away, so I've been looking up AMD stuff for the last day or so. Microsoft use AMD in the Xbox One so, they cant be that bad right? The kind of games I'll be playing are mostly RPG Skyrim, Dragon Age etc. and some online stuff like WoW and EVE Online. Haven't chosen a GPU yet, but in that sector, definately an AMD fan all the way. Hence the FX6300 on an MSI 970 Gaming or the new 970A Krait, I can't think why I'd need more than 6 cores for anything I do. Basically want to be able to game on high-ultra settings, do some light photo editing in the future with adobe, nothing too heavy like video editing or rendering. Love AMD for GPU and I chose them because they perform well and are good value (IMO) is this the same story with their CPUs? I'm also coming from using two Intel Core 2 Duo machines and a Pentium H/T before that so I've never been able to much in the way of gaming.
