Deciding which processor is best for my board.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys i need some help on deciding on a good processor for my motherboard, i am currently using a GA B250M Gaming 5 board. I know the board itself is not great but its all i have atm, the graphics card im using is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (EVGA) and only has 2gb of video ram, and the processor i already have is a Intel Pentium G4600, so i guess another question is would it be wiser to upgrade my CPU first or my GPU? any help is welcomed thank you in advance. :)

We don't know what graphics card you're using, you only told us the vram

 

You should be able to afford both, an i5 6500 isn't very expensive off eBay and then you could probably snag yourself an RX 470/570


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Oh yeah my bad im sorry, my graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (EVGA) and i was kinda wanting to stay with NVIDIA because i hear that they go well with intel processors? maybe this is a myth or a rumor though? thank you.

Myth.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Myth.

 

Upgrade your CPU first.
