    Below is my main rig. Last year I also built myself two extra pcs. I wanted a full AMD build so I'd have both sides, and then I built myself a mATX budget pc. I had some parts laying around from upgrading my main rig or other projects.

    AMD Build
    Rosewill Challenger
    FX6300 @3.9ghz w/ Copper Heat Pipe Stock Cooler
    MSI 970A-G46
    XFX 7870 Double Dissipation Edition
    OCZ ModXStream 780w
    1TB WD Blue
    2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600mhz
    Lite-ON DVD burner
    Logitech G110 Keyboard
    ProHT Mouse
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

    Budget Build
    Cooler Master Elite 110
    Pentium G3258 4.7GHZ w/ Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer AIO
    AsRock Z87E-ITX
    EVGA ITX 4GB 960
    Seasonic SS-300ET Bronze 300w
    Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SSD
    WD Blue 1TB
    2X4GB HyperX Fury Blue 1600mhz
    Logitech G110 Keyboard
    Logitech G500 Mouse
    Windows 8 Pro 64bit

    I think I'm going to sell the Budget Build's FX6300 and mobo and buy a CM Elite 110 or Fractal Node 304 and buy a G3258 and OC it to 4.5ghz for an even more budget build, better single core performance, and less heat.

  1. Since I've seen it I've really wanted one but the price is too high. I would love to have one for going to friend's houses or taking in the living room. I love small pcs. Why I'm interested is it delivers decent desktop performance in a Wii U sized box that you can throw in a back pack.
  2. my post is only refering to the performance, not chip upgrades. The main reason to compare gpus is for their performance. Power and features are totally different.
  3. if you're talking about me forming my consclusion, yes i did use benchmarks. OP, no.
  4. I'm not. This dude just doesn't look at gpu benchmarks
  5. No where did I say each gen of gpus gets less performance. Since you apparently have no logical thinking skills I'll make it real easy to understand. These are general steps and there is a slight difference in performance within each teir. It generally goes down one "model name". The performance can change with differnet settings, like how a 960 beats a 670 with no AA but the 670 wins with 4xMSAA or higher due to larger bus width, which results in higher bandwidths so overall they're close but the 960 is a tiny bit faster for the average gamer as running 4xMSAA will be too much of a performanc
  6. As someone who owns a 970, I don't really care. I'm pretty sure everyone who bought a 970 looked at benchmarks first, then MABYE looked at ROPs. But who cares how many ROPs or L2 cache it's using? Performance is the end result we care about and ROPs and L2 cache affect it. So if you saw the performance of the card and were satisfied enough to buy one then obviously you're ok with less ROPs and cache. I don't care if the 970 has 1 ROP and 1kb of L2 cache or if it runs off fairy dust as long as it performs as it should/does. Did I see special Nvidia videos with the 970 running BF4 4K Ultra
