Hello,

 

What is your budget ? Would you consider AMD ?

 

Also only the i3 is 9100f.


Don't forget to quote (arrow bottom left of the message) or use name tag (@name) for us to see your answer.

i5 9100F and i3 9100F? I think you mistyped there buddy. Anyways, this build is gonna be severely bottlenecked by the CPU no matter if you put a 1070 or a 1080 in it. If you start to play games that under normal circumstances will make the GPU work hard you will find that your CPU will be instantly pinned at 100% and the GPU not performing to spec. Consider either downgrading GPU or upgrading CPU.


Please ping or quote me if you want a response. :)

A thing to consider is also which other hardware you already have. Are you planning on putting the cpu and gpu into another computer with already purchased hardware thus this will be an upgrade, or are you buying all new hardware? If the latter is the case, I would go for something AMD as it seems to be the better bang for buck choice these days.

I was thinking about that too but the prices in Malaysia for Ryzen isnt looking well,The ryzen 5 3600 is like 880 and the i5 9400f with a h310m mobu is 820

Well in that case go for the 9400f as it has two more cores. It will perhaps benefit you more in the long run, and the system will last longer (future proofing). The thing to consider is also the price. If they are priced similar, go for the 9400f. If the price difference is huge go for the 9100f. They perform similar, but the 9400f has two more cores.

no overclocking

a locked 6 core will do pretty well with a 1070/1080 imo and won't be a bottleneck in most cases.

 

that said, the 9400 is still a bad value proposition.

I made this statement before the correction. So I was talking about the i3 9100F. That CPU will definetly bottleneck the system.

Ok I found that the ryzen 5 2600 is like 80 cheaper than the 9400f,Is it a better choirce for gaming?Or should i stick with the 9100f

If we are looking at the CPU only, it would depend on the price. The performance seems similar perhaps with minor better performance on the intel. If it is also the cheapest one, then get the intel. I don't think you will go wrong with either.
