  1. Hi guys!
    So I'm considering maybe upgrading my pc and I was wondering what specs people use for their rig?
    Also, I'd like to know peoples opinions on the INTEL vs AMD competition. Mainly I'd use the pc for editing videos and recording, as well as battlefield 4 gaming on ultra and similar games.

    Here's a thread all about our PC rigs and what we all use Share Your PC Rig!

    In regards to the Intel vs AMD discussion, I don't have much to add. I'm a fan of Intel currently, but as technology changes and improves who I favor can also be swayed. Though, generally speaking I favor whatever will best run Nvidia cards because so many game makers tend to prefer their technology.
     
  3. Thanks :D

    I highly suggest Intel, as their processors tend to have more heat resistance (and in turn better overclocking) As for the Nvidia vs. AMD fight, I personally think that they are equal. One will put out the highest card, then the other will put out a better one, and the cycle continues. Unless you have 3k for a Titan Z. Then it's NVidia all the way.
     
  5. Thanks, I might consider Nvidia as a GPU, but I know I can change between at any time because they both use PCIE, I'm just confused about what CPU, because I know AMD/INTEL have different sockets and I don't know which is better

    Do you have a motherboard picked out already? What is your price range? Are you planning on streaming any of your gaming? Does audio quality matter A LOT to you?

    If you answer a couple of these, I can help more
     
  7. If Im going to get AMD, im planning on getting a MSI 970 Gaming, if I'm going to get Intel im planning on getting a MSI B85-G43, my price range is preferably around $1000 Australian dollars ($815 USD) but max is about AU$1500 ($1224 USD), I am willing to go over a bit (AU$200/US$163) if needed. I would like to stream gaming, but internet where i live is bad atm (4mbps down/ 0.8mbps up) so I cant, I may in the future when I buy my own house. Audio quality for my videos has to be decent (normal quality) but I'd very much prefer the ability to have 7.1 stereo for my casual non recording (Razer Kraken 7.1, which I'd like to get the most out of)
     
  8. Thanks so much by the way :D

    The price first of all. But it doesn't have the ack on it, nor the streaming engine.
     
  15. Ah ok, what is the ack?

    From the msi website: Enjoy the best possible online gaming experience. Wireless AC Killer has 2.9x times faster data throughput compared to traditional Wireless-N solutions. The biggest advantage is lower latency when gaming. Killer WI-FI has up to 3.5x times lower latency than other WI-FI solutions.
    ntroducing world's first Killer LAN & Wireless gaming connection on a motherboard, the X99S GAMING 9 ACK offers unmatched gaming performance. Smart teaming combines both LAN & Wireless for the best possible gaming experience. The Killer Network Manager decides which apps runs on which connection for gaming traffic optimization. Truly unique is using Killer LAN and Killer WIFI combined for insane networking speeds.

    I suggested it because you said you have bad internet.
