the 9400F will game better in most cases, but has a much more limited upgrade path.


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 - Hyper 212 Black (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)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The 2700 should be slightly faster than the 2600X on average, and due to the lower end GPU the CPUs should be even closer than what is shown. The 1% lows on the 9400F also suffer more than the 2700 in CPU intensive games.

 

The 2700x can be seen here matching the 9400F in almost every game while often having better 1% lows(Far Cry is the biggest exception):

I don't think the 2700 would be so much slower than the 2700X to make any big difference.

I'd say neither. 1600AF& manual OC --> will be around the same lvl as 9400f.

 

2700 is a fine CPU, but for purely gaming point of view, it is not as great. Btw, with a 1050ti, or anything up to ~2060, you will NOT encounter massive differences in performance. The reason I'm thinking 1600AF is perfectly fine: six cores-12 threads are more than enough for the time being. Later you can still move up to 8-cores.

 

If I were you: I'd just buy a 1600AF, some good cooling & MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX motherboard (or the Mortar Max, if mikroATX is preferred). Later you will have the opportunity to upgrade to 4th gen Ryzen.


Life is really challenging. I don't always suceed: )

i already upgraded and i would say im really happy in my choice of the i5-9400F as my benchmark performance in GTA V was 60fps with my old i5-7400 and now is 170 fps avg with the i5-9400 which as you can probably can see is a huge jump in performance. Also some time after i created this thread i got to know that intel CPUs usually performe better in gaming which is what i use my pc most of the time.
