CPU to match Sapphire R9 390

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

 

I'll be building my first desktop soon and so far I have the Sapphire R9 390 nitro already bought. I still need a cpu and have been thinking on buying the i5 4690k but I'm running low on funds. Anyone know any other good cpus that will be cheaper or any benchmarks that I can look at ? Looking to spend around 300-350 canadian for mother board and CPU.

i5 4460 and a some H97 or something motherboard. Wont bottleneck, DDR3. Good stuff.

Yeah I was thinking i5 4460 anyone know how much worse it performs if at all ? 

As you said, the difference is usually pretty minimal.

@Confusizzled, you could just buy an AMD FX-8350 + a Hyper 212 Evo cooler, and an ASRock 970 Performance motherboard, it doesn't bottleneck my GTX 970 at all when overclocked to 4,5gHz, so I guess you'll be fine as well. The cooler should be enough for that kind of overclock.
