Intel Core i5 or i7 processor for gaming

20 July 2011 618 Comments

I have got this question a couple of times regarding which processor to choose from the latest intel Sandy Bridge processors when making a new gaming computer, does it make sense to go with the higher i7 processor or will the i5 be more than enough, continue reading to find out.

i7 vs i5

Both these new Core i (2nd generation, LGA Socket 1155) also know as Sandy Bridge processor from Intel the i5 and i7 are basically quad core processors and if you even look at the clock speeds the i5 processor (2500 model) is clocked at 3.3 Ghz and the i7 processor (2600 model) is clocked

at 3.4 Ghz so in terms of raw clock speed perfromance you are not getting that much from a i7 processor, but one thing that is different is that in an i7 processor is that hyper-threading is enabled so applications that can use hyper-threading see the processor as a 8 core processor instead of 4 cores but again for gaming a i5 processor is more than enough, in-fact for a gaming computer the graphic card plays a more important role than the processor itself as in most of the games the graphic card is the bottle neck for the performance and not the processor so I would suggest for a gaming computer you go for the i5 2500K processor which offers the best bang for your buck and invest the money saved in a better graphic card, see the video I made below for more info.

  • Sahil said:

    Hi,
    so wht i understand is tht i5 has enough jucie to play games .. and i7(hyper threading) is of no use for me as i am jus gonna play games and facebook.. :P
    But my quest doesnt end here.. i want a laptop.. but there arent many options wid an i5 and a kickass graffix card.. max i can find is an i5 wid abt 6 gb ram and 1 gb video ram.. n the same manufacturer will give an i7 wid 12gb ram n 2/3 gb video ram.. I have been checking all .. Alienware.. Dell.. Toshiba.. Asus.. heck even sony.. :P
    please help me out if u can.. thanks..!!!

  • Ranjit said:

    Hi Sahil buying a gaming laptop is tricky coz they use mobile processors and they are a whole different breed of chips only a few are i7 chips are quad core and other chips are dual-cores but most of them have hyper-threading enabled even some low power i7 are just dual-core so please check the exact chip model number and check what you are getting you certainly do not want those low power i7 chips for gaming laptop if you want 4 cores then I guess i7 is the way again as I mentioned check which mobile chip is in the laptop coz not all i7 mobile chips have 4 cores…. Alienware make good gaming laptops IMHO.

    Again for gaming 1 GB RAM Video RAM IMHO is enough and 2 GB is more than enough again go for a powerful mobile graphic chip than looking for the most amount of VRAM on the graphic chip also I do not think more than 8 GB RAM would be required for gaming on a laoptop.

    Cheers,

  • infidel94 said:

    i have a gtx460 overclocked it myself and a Q8200 2 quad processor with 8gb ddr2 ram and 1tb hard.I’m thinking if I should upgrade to an i5 for a game like battlefield 3. Will it make a much difference than a q8200?

  • geekyranjit said:

    @infidel94: To be frank I did not yet check the minimum specs for Battlefield 3 but from the trailers I have seen, this game is going to be a beast and to run BF3 at high settings you would require a modern processor and a powerful graphic card your processor though it’s a quad core the architecture core2 is a bit old now, I think so upgrading to i5 @ 2500K would give you a boost in your gaming.

  • infidel94 said:

    @geekyranjit thank you for the reply

  • zo0mmax said:

    i buy i5 2500 what do u think how much performance i lose 10% 20% or more then?{i upgrade pc only for games} btw i have still my old graphic card{ nvidia 8600gt} n want to buy nvidia gtx 550ti what do u think about 550ti? thanks

  • geekyranjit said:

    @zo0mmax: i5 2500 for gaming is more than enough, I would suggest go for i5 2500K as you can do overclocking if needed in the future……. for graphic chip nvidia 550ti is a okay but is a mid-range chip if you plan to run games at mid-settings its okay, but I doubt you might be able to run the latest games at maxed out at high resolutions with that card also check 560 Ti if the pricing is okay I would say go with that one as those are good mid-range cards.

  • zo0mmax said:

    @geekyranjit thank you very much for your time. you right gtx 560ti is very good then 550.i search on gogl bt also a huge price differences.i read some comments in a fourm which thy say when the kepler {new nvidia series they will release in q11 or in early 2012 } the 5series will go down 50%or more the because its a different teachnology… i think i ll go for 560ti a best combination with i5.thanks fr helpful reply. sorry for bad eng

  • bajrang said:

    hi,
    ranjit…….actually i got to know about this site via your you-tube video…..was very good…..

    if u dont mind plz help me with your expertise in purchasing a laptop…..

    my basic purpose would be…..wathing HD movies , high-end games(like COD ops etc), lots of internet, other multimedia stuff…..im not gonna do any video editing or other high project which an engineer do…..

    here are my few choices :
    HP – Pavilion dv6-6121TX
    IdeaPad Y570 Laptop – 086228U –
    Qosmio X775-Q7270 (gtx-560m 1.5 gb far superior) (so far my first choic but 17.3 isnt too big or not)
    asus g53sw (gtx 460m 1.5gb)

    if any other brand or product plz do suggest……..
    budget=50000 to 62000 ….

  • Ranjit said:

    Hi Bajrang I do not currently review laptops so cannot help with a specific model etc…

    If gaming was not imp then I would have suggested a thin and light laptop with an i5 processor with 4 GB RAM would be more than enough but with gaming a powerful GPU comes into picture.

    Look for a model with i5 processor and a good GPU, I do not recommend HP right now look for Dell XPS, Toshiba, Asus and Acer laptop model, for a laptop screen size is a personal preference if you are going to move a lot then the 17″ screen laptop IMHO will be pretty heavy and big so keep that in mind.

    The graphic card 560m is a good graphic card and you should be able to play most of the games with that also if you budget is not permitting you even the 460m graphic card is okay for todays games but you might need to keep the details at medium with some up coming games.

    Cheers,
    Ranjit

  • bajrang said:

    thanks ranjit,

    ohkiew …so i have decided 15.6, but in dell XPS is over hyped, and i searched the site of ACER “India”(MAx are low end lappys), acer doesn’t provide good range bet 45000-55000, and ASUS not much found in public, now i have been told toshiba qosmio q775 not available in india,

    according to my req(confi) and budget HP DV6(AMD 6770m) and lenovo y570(GT 555m) are available and u said u wouldn’t recommend HP ,

    plzz suggest if it is ok to buy either of them………which one should i go for, in most areas both are similar , even graphic card tech(both are class 1).

    iam not gonna play games on daily basis, but yeah if in case, i should be able to play latest ones no matter high details or low details……

    and 1 thing more, in a good high performance entertainment purpose lappy whether i should go for 4 gb ram or more(if it doesn’t enough) and resol 1366×768 or 1920×1080.

    thanks a lot for helping

    bajrang

  • joshxxt said:

    @zo0mmax buy the very best possible graphics card you can right now. 580. if you go 570.. get the 2gb version. go stock 560 not ti. not worth it. if you can SLI in the future DO IT. anyhow.. go stock always. not overclocked, superclocked, or the ti. They cause problems down the road and as TI vs stock 560.. literally…5% increase in performance. not worth it. If your mobo doesnt support SLI get at least a 570. preferably 580. Run your games at 1920×1080 or lower for best performance.

  • kevsol2 said:

    i7! i7 is better and faster but not a big difference as the i5. i have i5, i recomend starting with the i5 processor and buy the i7 later on :)

  • daxster25 said:

    @kevsol2 there is no difference for gaming, i7 is better for multitasking and video editing.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @kevsol2: Yep for gaming in particular a i5 chip like 2500 or 2500K is more than enough, a powerful graphic card is more important.

  • dinocelikovic said:

    i’m gonna have the i5 2400 for gaming and a sapphire radeon hd 6770 and 4gb ram is it gonna be enough for about next 3-4 years before I need to upgrade something because im on a low budget??

  • xxSymbiotexx said:

    @dinocelikovic 3 – 4 years? Probably not

  • dinocelikovic said:

    @xxSymbiotexx no sorry im gonna have an upgrade, im gonna have:intel core i5 2500 3.3 ghzkingston 4gb 1600mhz ram 2x2gigabyte radeon hd 6850 1gb gddr5cooler master cx 650w psuis this anything better?

  • xxSymbiotexx said:

    @dinocelikovic hell yes thats better. Might want to get 8 GB of RAM but thats not really for gaming. Just multitasking and video rendering

  • geekyranjit said:

    @dinocelikovic: Okay mid-range config for gaming, yeah but as suggested by xxSymbiotexx go for 8 GB Ram its really cheap these days and you will be able to multitask a lot better again if you are going with 8 GB Ram then go with Windows 7 64 bit.

  • dinocelikovic said:

    @geekyranjit i cant go with 8gb because im on a tight budget and the difference in price between 4gb and 8 gb is about $40 and im already gonna have windows 7 ultimate 64-bit!! :D

  • geekyranjit said:

    @dinocelikovic: Oh I see… not a problem coz 4 GB is pretty good and if you want to upgrade RAM on a later stage you can do that upgrading RAM is one of the easiest thing we can do……. BTW RAM is expensive where you live here we can get 8 GB 1333Mhz DDR3 (2 x 4GB) for about $55 – 60.

  • SmileeDude23 said:

    i7 for heavy gaming, but i5 for lighter games. Heavy games: battlefield, Crysis, B Ops, MW3 lighter games, PvZ, Minecraft, WoW, MW2, COD4

  • geekyranjit said:

    @SmileeDude23: Even latest heavy games like BF3, Crysis 2 / COD4 / MW3 the i5 it’s more than enough……. so essentially you do not need the i7, I wont argue you can see CPU benchmarks for that it’s better to put that extra money for a beefed up graphic card especially for games like BF3 where you want all the eye candy.

  • Warmonger1337 said:

    The i5 2500k spanks the i7 2600k, no games support hyperthreading. So if your building a gaming rig the i5 2500k is better. It also bench’s better then the 2600k in some games. So save $100 and get the BETTER chip. Spend the $100 and get a 6970 or something and start running games maxed out.

  • Amuffin456 said:

    @Warmonger1337 Only for gaming, however the 2600k destroys the 2500k in anything that is multi threaded.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @Amuffin456: Yep I agree, if you work with video and do editing stuff the i7 2600K is a better chip but for just gaming the i5 2500K is more than enough.

  • Amuffin456 said:

    @xXlccporXx i5-2500, unfortuenatly these chips can only be pushed up to 4.1ghz

  • Warmonger1337 said:

    @Amuffin456 That is true, but who does CPU intensive tasks on home computers anymore? The only reason to get a i7 is if your a huge photoshop or video editing/rendering person. Other then that its a waste of money.

  • rollingcube said:

    can you explain exactly what these processors are, what they do and how? Just sort of simply as possible so I can find out just what they are and why they are so good. Thanks.

  • Amuffin456 said:

    @Warmonger1337 Which is stuff I like to do apparently :P hyperthreading is great

  • Amuffin456 said:

    @rollingcube i5-2500k has 4c/4t and the i7-2600k has 4c/8t. Right now just wait until september where ivybridge will come out.

  • TheArunsaru said:

    sir i have a question that i can overclock my i5 2320 or not

  • xXlccporXx said:

    @Amuffin456 i7 k chips can’t go far either….

  • bogdanbocaful said:

    You know white a i3 2120 u and a gtx 550 ti you can run evrythin on max af, as and on 1024×768

  • Amuffin456 said:

    @xXlccporXx What do you mean? K chips can be pushed up to 5+ghz

  • geekyranjit said:

    @Amuffin456: K at the end of these intel chips simply means that you can overclock the chip, non K version of the chip run at the stock frequency.

  • Amuffin456 said:

    @geekyranjit non version of the k chip can be pushed up to 4.1ghz.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @Amuffin456: Yep they are like semi-unlocked processors the multiplyer can ben increase a little bit from the stocks and also change the BCLK so you can go around 4 Ghz, I could not personally test the same coz I processors that I have are all the K versions.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @TheArunsaru: Actually you can overclock this processor a little again it will also depend upon the motherboard that you are using,The motherboard that can support overclocking are the P67 & Z68 for sandy bridge processors.

  • AvAThinkClear said:

    thank you come again ! just kidding :))

  • Gaffer213 said:

    @geekyranjit what do u think of the new prossesor?

  • geekyranjit said:

    @Gaffer213: By new do you mean the Sandybridge E processors based on socket 2011 ???

  • Gaffer213 said:

    @geekyranjit yes

  • geekyranjit said:

    @geekyranjit: For gaming you do not require those 6 core E processors but if you are heavily in 3D modeling or video production then those processors can help do note the E processors is pretty expensive about $990

    @yuvraj5174 is that true? i always thought nVidia cards are better for gaming. how does the AMD Radeon 6950 2GB GDDR5 compare to the nVidia Geforce GTX 560 1GB GDDR5 ? I’m actually plannnig to buy a PC so this would be helpful

  • mBrooksRants said:

    What about rendering? I guess the i7?

  • geekyranjit said:

    @mBrooksRants: By rendering you mean for videos task / encoding etc then yes the i7 has the edge but here in this video we are taking about gaming.

  • JanitorLopez said:

    @jdcresswell Funny seeing this comment just 2 days after i decided never to buy an AMD again.Used to have phenom 9750, then switched to phenom II x4 955BE and after that phenom II x6 1090T cause i had performance issues in many newer games (and i thought it was just bad optimization, cause with each of those upgrades i got like 5 fps increase). Anyways, 2 days ago i swtiched to i5 2400 and performance in ALL games jumped sky high! Every game that had a FPS drop anywhere now runs 60+fps steady!

  • gowtham228 said:

    intel is not suitable for gaming its for business & programif you want more performance go to AMD its cpmpatible and low price compare to intel

  • geekyranjit said:

    @gowtham228: Did you benchmark and test with a dozen games AMD used to be great earlier…… but the best gaming chip right now is the i5 2500K and again its also a great number cruncher not to mention comparable AMD chips consume a lot more power (electricity).

  • PratikL20 said:

    does that hyperthreading technology in i7 make any diffrence in gaming!!!

    i7 2600k

  • geekyranjit said:

    @PratikL20: Nope

  • geekyranjit said:

    @PratikL20: Nope hyper-threading is not going to make a difference in gaming.

  • Lobos222 said:

    I would not upgrade now since Ivy Bridge is coming this summer.Same goes for new 3d cards coming out. nVidia summer 2012 and ATI jan feb 2012.For gaming the clock speed is still the most important part in regards to CPUs.Another thing that is important in regards to the future is the console marked. Both Xbox360 and the PS3 will still be the top end consoles for 2012. So you wont see a huge tech leap in most AAA PC games ether, with a few exemptions.If you have a decent rig now, wait.

  • bamfan2044 said:

    @gowtham228 Don’t go AMD if you want a good gaming CPU, go intel the 1155 platform is highly upgradable. An i3-2100 out preforms almost all AMD quad core CPU’s in gaming. Get an i3-2100 or any i5 CPU on the 1155 platform and u will dominate over all AMD’s in gaming.

  • longmage4 said:

    I would recommend i7-2600k if you got a good budget, because newer games takes advantage of more than 4 cores, which is good in the future if you got a i7.

  • AllTheWayApps said:

    Rupees! Yay Zelda!

  • Crux315 said:

    @longmage4 The i7-2600k only has four-cores. The question arises due to the hyper-threading feature of the i7 which is not available on the i5. And no, you’d want to purchase the i5 because games do not take advantage of the hyperthreading.

  • ATLMember said:

    @optuke Both are pretty lousy. If you want to game get something with at least a GTX 560m, or better yet, build a desktop

  • ATLMember said:

    @gowtham228 Not even slightly true. AMD is failing so bad right now, anyone who buys Bulldozer is such a sucker.

  • mrDakiller101 said:

    i have a i7 870 currently is it worth upgrading to the lga1155 socket i7 or just keep the 870 and use the money to go to a better graphics card? i have a ati 5770 currently, please reply thanks

  • geekyranjit said:

    @mrDakiller101: Just upgrade to a more powerful graphic card no point in going for i7 1155, your current i7 870 is more than enough for gaming.

    @mrDakiller101 so much processor speed is not needed for gaming, you can use a core quad cpu aswell. if you want to buy a gpu add one more ati 5770 on your pc and you will be ok.

  • geekyranjit said:

  • debayanbasu11 said:

    okye,i understood that i5 is enough for gaming & graphics card plays the most vital role,but what about the inbuilt graphics card of i5 processor & motherboard??? pls answer me,what will be the most suitable for gaming….

  • geekyranjit said:

    @debayanbasu11: If you going to play the latest 3D games the internal integrated graphic chip on these Sandybridge chips like i5 / i7 is no good its just good enough for basic games and desktop functionality but if you are going to play the 3D games then you need the dedicated graphic card GPU.

    Hello everyone. I play world of warcraft and i want to buy a processor that can get more than 70 fps. With the i7 how many fps will i be able to get?

  • geekyranjit said:

    @wwecyprusguy: as mentioned in the video a i5 is more than enough get a good graphic card like Nvidia 560 or ATI Radeon 6870 a powerful graphic card is more important than the processor for good fps in gaming.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @imissmynut: Yep i3 with Nvidia 550 would be great combo for light gaming.

  • buzz9961 said:

    what do you say about taking an i3 and upgrade later to i7?

  • geekyranjit said:

    @buzz9961: Yes that can be done.

  • MrKaisyj said:

    Actualy the only big diffrence betwen i5 and i7 seven is hyper threading that is the feature that i7 has and i5 doesnt but, for gaming that is not usable it just makes more heat and therefore less overclock ablity:D If u video editing then i7 is beast:D

  • Surtak said:

    I am SO SORRY for this….but I burst out laughing at the absolutely perfect situation of an Indian basically giving out Tech Support. It was too brilliant, so sorry :(On the actual content I’d say, very good advice. I’d only recommend the i7 for really very processor-heavy software.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @guru00005: I am talking about desktop processors here and with a i7 vs i5 you are not going to get much performance increase in gaming…… better to invest that money in a better faster GPU coz that’s the most imp thing for a gaming rig…. essentially the current crop of i5 are just i7 but just hyper-threading is disabled…. also any current game will not take advantage of more than 4 cores.

    @Darkmanskin Why would you need 16 gigs of RAM o_0 … in my opinion difference between 4 gigs on 32-bit OS and 12 gigs on 64-bit OS is minimal (isn’t worth the money). And I think the 64-bit OS is shittier :D but that’s just my opinion =3

  • dustin15b said:

    i agree there is no point in spending the money on the i7, that money is better spent on the graphics card a prime example is my rig i5 2500k, 16GB 1600mhz RAM, Radeon 6850 2GB 256-bit gfx card, Z68 board. my friends is an i7 2700k, same RAM, Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit, same board and we benchmark at right around the same FPS (im talking a 1-3 fps difference) i saved alot more money on my rig then he did (230usd for i5 370usd for i7)

  • christoiMc said:

    Since you didn’t mention this, I thought I’d post my 2c:First of all, “i5″ and “i7″ are marketing titles, it doesn’t actually refer that much to the performance. An i7 2617m is vastly inferior to an i5 2410m. Do not judge a CPU on the names, but the specific chip.Secondly, the i5 2500k is BETTER for gaming than the i7 2600k. The 2600k had added hyperthreading, which does NOT affect gaming performance at all. The additional l2 cache and 100mhz higher stock clock isn’t worth the extra money.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @christoiMc: I did mention the difference between the i5 and i7 also in this video I am talking about the desktop variants the mobile variants of these intel processors are seriously crazy messed up even some i7 are not quad cores….. But for a desktop & gaming as mentioned in the vid i5 is more than enough the i7 is not a bad processor it does generate more heat…. and if you do video / audio stuff apart from gaming the i7 beats the i5. I personally use i7 coz I work a lot with video.

  • Kole208 said:

    id go i7 2700k 1 games now if you are maxing the setting out are starting to use more than 2 cores for example bfbc2 bf3 skyrim ect. id go i7 2700k future proof, don’t go for 2600k the 2700k it a better overclocker some people might say that they are just a way for Intel to make more money by store overclocking them but by them doing that little extra they are really meaning you don’t have to worrier about it being a bad over clocker and being unstable at high clocks

    i7 Extreme hex core simply because multimedia producing use a lot of processing power. Downside is it’s $1000. If you do just get an i7, note you can only expand it out to 32 GB of Ram, while the Extreme can have up to 64, another downside.Whatever is better for your budget and how heavy and in depth the programs and music your making is really a big deciding factor.

    hi, i apreciate your video!i decided to buy an intel core i5 and an AMD readon saphire 7950!is it good mix?and what MOBO should i buy?i want something that gives me a big range for upgrades, like the new MSI gd-65 (i think)couse it has 3x 3.0 pci-e 16x!! but should i go with a cheaper MOBO? with an z68 chipset??tell me, there are lots of MOBO, and i don’t know where to pick!

  • geekyranjit said:

    Yeah good config…… for motherboards you should go with Z68 chipset coz you can do overclocking and on a later stage add a small SSD so that you can take advantage of intel SRT…. motherboard brands I prefer Asus, Gigabyte and MSI…… just check the one which gives the max warranty….. generally the deluxe model of boards offer more options and also wifi on the board if you require that.

  • geekyranjit said:

    The Nvidia GTX 570 is a very good graphic card you should be able to play almost every game in very high setting but its not the best I would say if you want the best go for 680 skip the 580 coz the 680 is almost 3x powerful but again every expensive card.

  • ImmortalUniverse said:

    If i were you i would get Ivy bridge Laptop.best is to wait a month or maybe 2 ,so there will be more choiche and cheaper prizes.ivy processors will eat less battery power.and could extra boost the gt650.check the HP DV7 7000 series .they look kinda cool ,but are not for sale yet

  • madhawan111 said:

    You should go for GTX 580 only if you want to play Crysis and BF 3 at ultra high setting or have more than one monitor i.e. resolution of 2560*1920, Otherwise GTX 570 is the best card for the budget. You can be secure for upto 2 years easily. Don’t forget the gtx 580 is not even as efficient as 570 which will lead to more heat and power consumption.

    get an i5 and spend the saved money on a 560 ti. its a beter choice for gaming.hyperthreading is the only benifit on the i7, and that doesn’t do anything for gaming.

    No, the processor is okay but your graphic card is the bottleneck for ultra game settings.

  • geekyranjit said:

    Yes its a mid-range card and can play most of the games in high settings @1080p res.

  • Mrsamsaara said:

    Can you make a recent video about the gaming performance of the new ivy bridge processors? The I5- 3570k in perticular.

    what do you mean ”bottleneck”.give me some more details on this please.

  • Mrcerimo said:

    if you don’t know what “bottleneck” means, then search for this video: “Understanding Hardware “Bottlenecks” ” (first video) else: the CPU is good, but the GPU is your problem… it can’t run new games at ultra with constant 60fps.. it’s too slow.. upgrade it… and then you can play games at ultra with constant 60fps

  • thekillingjimmy said:

    so what is your suggestion on this point? what gpu should i buy?

  • wow1808 said:

    Without watching video I Will say i5

    well these graphics cards meet your requirements (new game, ultra settings , 60fps or close, 1920 x 1200 res?) : gtx 670 ,680, 7970, 7950… personally I’m going with a asus direct cu2 gtx 670 top model

  • KodsterNcorster2012 said:

    how do i check if i have i7 or i5 or any “i” at all?

  • geekyranjit said:

    Yes very good config IMHO.

  • geekyranjit said:

    If you plan to do gaming on high or to very high setting on a 1080p monitor I would suggest that you go with the AMD Radeon 7850 instead or 7650 or If you budget permits go for Radeon 7880.

  • geekyranjit said:

    Radeon 7970 is a excellent graphic card you can play any game at very high to ultra details, as you have also mentioned that you would be doing video editing I would suggest opting for i7 instead of i5.

  • Amuffin456 said:

    Actually, the i5 will always be the better choice for gaming. This is because hyperthreading decreases performance in gaming, plus how many games are multithreaded?

  • melvinvermeeren said:

    It doesn’t really matter, i7 is an advantage imo.I run games at 2560×1440 on medium-high settings since that resolution is a dick.But even than, my i7 3820 (no OC) still idles on the max. 4 threads that most games support, the other threads are useful for running servers and whatnot.

  • Money37945 said:

    I know some of these words you people are talking about….

  • xtro1969 said:

    Actually, that is incorrect. It is true that there is little to no difference in many games, but the i7 is the better choice all round (HT decreasing performance is a myth) – at a price.

  • friendly0ne1 said:

  • HIPOPH8ER said:

    I’m trying to build a gaming pc, under $700, with the i5 2500k processor, can you give me a good build bro?

  • geekyranjit said:

    I5 2500K is still a very good processor, You should go with a Z68 or Z77 chipset based motherboards and for the graphic card I would suggest the Radeon HD 7870 if you can fit Radeon 7950 in your budget nothing like it a good PSU from se-sonic or Antec rated around 600 – 650 Watt should be more than enough.

  • HIPOPH8ER said:

    thanx would this also be a good build to edit videos on?

  • geekyranjit said:

    No a i5 will be more than enough it wont be bottleneck.

  • geekyranjit said:

    Yes you can certainly do video editing on a i5 based system but if video editing is your primary role rather than gaming then I would suggest the i7 over the i5.

  • Vivek8510 said:

    thanks sir….

  • Techipedia said:

    I live in the UK and I watch your videos regularly, keep up the good work mate :)

  • ImmortalUniverse said:

    Nice ,If you use vsync thats normal.60 FPS is enough anyways.. for the refresh rate of most monitors, 60 FPS is good .

  • ImmortalUniverse said:

    Most of the time the user is the bottleneck.If the User uses filters on a card ,that are too powerfull for the card.then the game will drop in FPS.i also notice people put everything up ultra high (AA and AF) and refelections and blur.while a real GAmer doesnt even wanna put those things hiigh.it destroys the fps and gameplay.

  • ImmortalUniverse said:

    i disagree.the ivy bridge has too much advantage over the 2500K.especially when you think of Gen 3 cards , and IGPU taking over on idle while the dedicated gen 3 card is only used in games.thats a energy saver and the IGPU is much more silent then the graphics cards.i dont think you can do that trick with a 2500K

  • ImmortalUniverse said:

    go for gen 3 stuff and a ivy bridge .thats the best future advise i can give.the igpu is a bliss for internet surfing at night , and can switch over to graphics card when i play a game.

    Ranjit Sir, can you please tell me the best combination for normal gaming, light video editing, photoshop, and for surfing the internets, i’m planning to use i5 2500k, what motherboard should i use the intel Z68 was too expensive for me, my budget for motherboard is Rs.4500, and a suitable video cards for Rs.2800, i prefer the NVidia, give me more advice on assembling pc, Thank you

  • geekyranjit said:

    If you are not going to use a motherboard like P67 or Z68 chipset you cannot over-clock your processor efficiently so if you are planing to go with the cheaper H61 chipset then I would suggest just go with the normal i5 2500 or i5 2320 instead of the K, and invest that money you save one a better graphic card at-least like nvidia 550 if u want to do gaming at acceptable fps with medium settings, also install 8 GB of RAM as it helps in video editing.

    I havent tested the AMD Fx processors so cannot comment, but if gaming is a concern then the intel i5 unlocked K processor is more then enough.

  • saswatmohanty23 said:

    Well buddy Ranjit you need to research a bit more. You are absolutely wrong about the pricing here and what graphics card is best for a specific budget.
    Intel i5-2500k costs around 13k now and i7-2600k now costs around 17.5k. IVB k series i7 cost around 22k.

    And regarding graphics card, for 10.5k GTX-560 is the best card one can get now. For 15k currently HD 7850 2GB DDR5 is the best. Its much better than HD 6950 2GB DDR5 and GTX-560Ti be it performance, pricing or power consumption.

  • aman5175 said:

    Before accusing me did you realize that this video was made over a year ago in July 2011 so obviously the pricing has changed a lot during that time, also at the time of making this video we did not have IVB parts or the AMD 7xxx GPU series in the market, I still stick that i5 is more than enough for gaming and the most important thing is to select a decent graphic card yes the AMD 77xx / 78xx series graphics cards are v good and at the same time consume a lot less power.

    it wont bottleneck.

    Nope, your bottlenecking your processor.. well kind of, lemme know a budget and i’ll make a build for u.

  • aman5175 said:

    Yes there isnt, but note.. spending a extra 2k on a motherboard gives you too much future proofing.. for eg: Overclocking capability, SLI and CFX support! if i was you the only motherboards i would buy right now is the Z68 or the Z77 (w/ ivy bridge processor). I’m using the MSI Z68-G45 – costed me 9k, has all the features u might need.

  • piushochieng88 said:

    ok lets just say i stick with i7 and there are lots of i7 choices. however, some of the i7 i found in intel website shows that some i7 processor only has 1.7 ghz clock speed. compared to some i3 processor which has 2.4+ ghz clock speed. why is that even though i7 is meant for gaming?

  • Synestir said:

    get the 8120, save yourself some money, and overclock it yourself to 3.6GHz

  • geekyranjit said:

    Go for the standard desktop models of the i7 not the low power laptop version, all the desktop i7 versions have 4 physical cores + multi-threadiing (8 threads) and are generally over 3 Ghz speeds.

  • jin37uk said:

    Get an i5 k model: 2500k or 3570k. i7 have hyperthreading which is good for video encoding, but pointless for gaming as it’ll just add heat. Also don’t get the NVIDIA 560ti, it’s good but 660ti is out soon

  • geekyranjit said:

    Yeah i5 is more than enough if its just for gaming, also check the AMD Radeon 7850 / 7870 they offer very good performance generate a lot less heat and consume a lot less power.

    the problem is that whenever i play a game the game uses the integrated graphics(intel hd graphics 3000) and does not switch to the gt540m(but it should do as the nvidia optimus technology says.) due to this im experiencing some serious performance crysis.
    my specs
    dell xps 15
    i7 2670qm
    8gb ram
    750gb hdd
    nvidia geforce gt 540m 2gb
    hope you can help :)

    hay guys what about i3 for gaming ? can someone please answer me

  • REDACE said:

    hello Ranjit as u said i52500k is enuff for good gaming pc can u plz tell me can it meet requirments for games cming in future 2years becoz I cn invest good now for pc so I don’t hv to put any money for atleast 2 to 3 years so plz help me

    Thnx

  • rubikfan1 said:

    no not realy good for gaming, i3 is made mostly made for very light and portble things like net/notebooks, it is perfect for checking mail, play some basic games(like minesweeper) and it is enoug for watching youtube vid if you vid card is high enoug, but if you want to player games you can better get a i5, and if you are one of those high end super grafich players than buy i7, but ther are alot of sub catecories,

  • Deadcraftfan said:

    Well I would say i5, but if you wanna get one that runs INSANELY well for gaming, get an AMD FX black edition 8-core 3.60 GHZ. You can overclock to about 4.2 and up GHZ AND it has 8 cores.

  • roostead said:

    So i5 3570k or i7 3770k for gaming?

  • steve12kalelis said:

    there is a huge diffirence between i7 and i5…i7 isn t only for video editing..not more than 5 fps diffirence(10 in an extreme case)in gaming,but when i5 will be weak,i7 will last about for 2 years more…

  • Adharsh6 said:

    Yes I5 is enough for gaming.. But dont choose AMD graphics.. There’s no features in 7850.People can choose nvidia 560 ti or 660ti.. because physx tech, adaptive V sync.. this are the IMP features.. U cant find in AMD…

    I have a gaming computer and it has a 3.5 GHz processor, 12 GB of DDR3 RAM and an AMD Radeon 7770 HD graphics card with 2 GB of GDDR3 memory, and since you have said that an i5 is more than enough for gamers than what would an i7 be for?

  • Nuno Manso said:

    Just one side note regarding the 3570K: This is 3rd generation cpu and thus it is from the Ivy Bridge class. For these set of processors the best motherboard chipset is the x77 (H77 or Z77) already created with the Ivy Bridge architecture in mind.
    Kind regards.

  • nadnerb978 said:

    Yeah. I’d say i5 just for longevity. Ive found the i5 3570 to have lower temps and smoother operation while running BF3, Crysis, and mostly AUTOCAD better. Plus it seems to be easier to manipulate than i7′s platform.

    before you troll over what is say realise this most games dont need much cpu power a modern cpu will run fine now why not save £140 and get an amd fx 6 core yes not as powerful as i7 3770k but that £140 can go to a better gpu or even a second one which would improve your expieriance much more than an i7 and crapper gpu.

  • R0za95 said:

    planetside 2 that uses 6 cores at least and so does battlefield its actually coded to use 8 if need be, and an FX isnt bad at all it just isnt as good as an i7 in single threaded enviorements, most CPU’s these days are good enough for anything anyway my FX will be able to play games for years to come as i expect your i5 to do the same so long as you get at least 4 cores any cpu will pretty much do.

  • rocky balboa said:

    i tried to get a desktop at 15000/-rs but after a month and about 10yahoo answers my budget was 55000/-rs when i ask a yahoo question what is the best processor around 4k they tell me to extend and have 6k of 6770and to make sure i asked again is 6770 okay they said go with 6850 and soon came 6870 and now 560ti finally i’m with i7 3770k and 560ti no more suggestions i had already sold my bike on this…Damn.

  • TheUoLo said:

    mr.ranjit what is a good editing all in one desktop?

  • V. Sai Deepak said:

    i7

  • MrAnthropophagy said:

    While there are games that utilise more than four cores it seems that they don’t do it efficiently with most of the cores running at a low load while some others run at a higher load. Some users have experienced a bit of slow down while using more than four cores on BF3. Game devs still need to do more work in this area. I don’t think the FX is a bad CPU at all and represents better value for money than the i7.

  • R0za95 said:

    see what most people fail to realise is a modern cpu with 4 cores or more will suffice for years as older 4 cores are only just getting stressed now such as athlon x4 and core 2 quad’s so imo ide buy an amd as they are much cheaper and then get a better gpu as the gpu is usually the bottleneck

  • R0za95 said:

    you could upgrade it but youde need a soildering iron and a way of unsoldering the cpu currently in there o.O

  • R0za95 said:

    i5 spend the extra on better gpu the i7 and i5 gaming are identical the i7 only has hyperthreading which isn’t helpful in fact you lose a few fps (like 2 or 3) as it uses the weaker threaded cores when it should use the full size one’s i can post some benchmark links if you want proof or you can take my word up to you,

    yes but see thing being yes the i5 is better than say an 8 core amd depending on which 8 core but put it in this persepective in years to come when games require at least 6 or more cores that i5 will be useless at least the amd will have the power to play the game so in that sense the amd has more power amd is like an investement its not so amazing now but will continue in years to come where as intel is like having an iphone its a brand that wont serve you well after a period of time

  • PickyMcCritical said:

    How much daily use would make an i7 noticeably more convenient than an i5?

  • TheFimpish said:

    Yeah, that’s true. When buying Nvidia video cards it’s those last 2 numbers that count. The 600 series has a few benefits over the 400 series, such as the fact that it’s better with tessellation and it’s PCIe 3.0. That won’t make too much of a difference with a 630 or 640. I’d stick with the 450 if they are your only options.

    If you want to upgrade, then go for a 650 or higher where you’ll actually see a difference.

    Just look at the benchmarks man.

    i5 is perfect for gaming, i7 is mainly for video editing and rendering.

    say some people are saying that an amd 8350 is equivalent to an i5.. what are your thoughts about it? now if intel processors are much better than amds(i currently have an amd based pc) i might have to do a system overhaul, but if its about equal or just slightly better in gaming performance, then i wont upgrade.. thanks in advance your vidoes has always been very informative.

    i5 is the better for gaming i7 is very good at games and for video editing!

  • BarryLlewellynperson said:

    Its not better. The latest i7′s are A LOT better for gaming. The reason i5′s are used more for gaming is because they’re cheaper..

  • BarryLlewellynperson said:

    The FX8350 is almost as fast as an Intel i5 3570k. In gaming, you’ll get an extra 5 fps or so with a 3570k. Although, in quite a few games the FX8350 will beat it. So, its about 30 dollars less, so I would recommend the FX8350. I’m sure though, that some Intel fanboy will see my comment and give out shit to it. But looking at real life benchmarks (Ones that are not of games @ 600x800p), the FX8350 seems to be pretty much equal.

    dude i have worked on them i know what i say!
    new i7 may be the same as i5 in gaming but who is going to buy and i7 just for gaming?waste of money!

  • BarryLlewellynperson said:

    You said that the i5 is BETTER than the i7. Which is bullshit. I think what you meant to say is that the i5 is BETTER VALUE than the i7.

  • TheDamdavis said:

    should I buy a i5 or i7 even if I don’t want to overclock? My mobo won’t let me overclock anyway.

  • TheGennaios said:

    i5 is cheaper and a better choice for gaming got it?
    i7 is the best choice for video editing and rendering!it was not made with gaming as its high priority got it?!

  • BarryLlewellynperson said:

    Look, you either have bad English or are completely retarded. I said that the i7 is better. Which is true. It may only give a few extra fps, but it IS better. Fact. Look it up. In terms of price and value, the i5 is a lot better. But in terms of performance the i7 IS BETTER. Deal with it. Not by much, but it is slightly better.

  • TheGennaios said:

    i am commenting to an indian video so am in the role(lol)!if you really think thats true!there is no game that can use 100% the capabilities of an i7!at least the 20% becomes waste!so because you know so much about the internal of cpus go get a gaming rig with a 70-80% working cpu!

    God damn it that intro scares the hell out of me!

  • BarryLlewellynperson said:

    I know that. But in (nearly) all benchmarks, the i7 just about beats the i5′s. Fact.

  • TheDawg475 said:

    thats hardly a surprise… an i5 is absolutely fine for playing all the newest games. the only place were an i7 is a clear winner is if you do 3d modeling or do stuff like photoshop and movies! just overclock the shit ou oft an i5 and you´re golden ^_^

  • BarryLlewellynperson said:

    ^Agreed bro! Especially the i5 2500k – that little thing overclocks like a beast!

  • MrFIFAHoudini said:

    Hi Ranjit, i want to buy a Gaming laptop and VFX processing work. Is there any system having a 2nd gen i7 and gt 240m under 50-52k? Please reply Fast as i need to buy under 2 weeks.. Thanks in advance..

  • agzchess said:

    very professional thanks

  • agzchess said:

    as he mentioned, get the i5, typically processors aren’t the bottleneck the video card is. spend the extra money you saved from not getting the i7 on a higher video card. this will be a better experience for gaming. i completely agree with this suggestion.
