MASTAX1234: your fraps counter doesnt even match the benchmarks frame counter WTF?
dsub1994: hey Paul, you have two options: 1) Sapphire 7970 OC @1000MHZ, can be taken
way further $420 2) Evga GTX680 @stock $540 Which would you pick. AMD's got
the latest drivers now, wouldn't that make the 7970 the one to get? I'm in
Australia BTW, Nvidia is far more expensive than AMD, so which would you
get in this case?
kooooolmatt: You can download a start menu such as start8. Don't get your panties in a
bundle over the start screen. First you don't have to have any modern style
apps (though some are very nice such as the mail app n calendar app n some
other ones) and the start screen is very nicely organized. If you like the
start menu then just download one.
dsub1994: Oh ok, makes sense. Well, my videos are usually 20minure-1hour long renders
on my i7 2630QM, so I think it's more like the CPU that's holding me back.
But since what I'm doing is nothing special (and most of the games I play
are 6th gen/car racing games) I'll probably just settle for the cheaper
option then. Probably get an i7 3930K for renering.
kooooolmatt: You can. You can download a start menu like start8 and even start into the
desktop. I don't know how to do that but if u cant figure it out then just
click the desktop. I for one like the organization of the start screen.
dsub1994: Okay that's great! I guess I'll wait for the next generation and hold my
build for later than. Thanks a lot man. BTW I subscribed after watching
your 3770K overclocking guide video...
Inflesco: XP owned this fck 8
dsub1994: But that dude from tek Syndicate says it's better for stuff like 3ds max
and Maya... Dunno, I have a lot of time to decide anyways, so I'm open to
any suggestions, really.
Paul LastLevelTech: I'm hoping it's because the drivers still aren't optimised enough.
Justin Howard: stinky lol
Paul LastLevelTech: Cool.
Paul LastLevelTech: Both the 3570k and the 3770k are excellent cpu's. If you are just gaming I
would say the 3570k as hardly any games make use of the extra
hyperthreading threads available to the 3770k. That cooler is ok, nothing
particularly special but certainly better than the stock cooler. I would
expect you to get 4.2->4.3Ghz on a low enough voltage to keep the chip from
cooking on that cooler. Btw, thanks for being my 500th subscriber. :)
LazahXD: get startisback then
deathscall1: if gaming is a side thing and editing is a priority then grab and NVidia
workstation GPU. Gaming gpus even though the CUDA and speeds of the core
may be high Editing programs only use certain areas of the GPU and
workstation GPUs (though expensive) perform those tasks flawlessly. If you
want to game for a good 5yr period with high settings no sweat get a good
CPU cooler, OC the cpu and run SLI 660 ti or higher. so i suggest 2
separate machines one for gaming and one for editing.
shynodaa: XP rules
Dima Boychev: there is a nice small software that does that, and the start menu isn't
some fake sht its exactly the same as in windows 7. its called starisback
or something like that
Paul LastLevelTech: No chance I'm afraid.
kooooolmatt: Oh yea. Windows 7 is going to be around for quite awhile. Look at XP. Its
been going for over 10 years. Don't worry about it man.
deathscall1: that depends on the user. The major reason NVidia costs so much more is
because of the support and how often they update drivers. If a new game
comes out with NVidia you don't have to worry if it has support for it
because its already ready for it but AMD you may have to wait and suffer
with low frames for a month and to a gamer that can cost you on
leaderboards and enjoyment.
Влад Корбут: XP хуйня
Paul LastLevelTech: There'll always be progress and optimisation though.
dsub1994: hmmm... Okay that makes sense. But what if you're more of a single player
gamer like me (I like games like metro 2033, Grid and Dirt) who only cares
about good graphics that won't need to be upgraded for say 5 years? (Note:
I do a LOT of editing and rendering, gaming is more of a side thing)
Dicehunter: If i could have windows 8 without the "app feel" then id get it.
7Bossak: Same crap diferent smell!
Paul LastLevelTech: Sorry for the late reply Aly. I personally like to stick with nVidia also
due to their superior driver support but I have to say AMD have put a lot
of effort into fixing that in recent years. And $120 is a lot of money in
the difference. Both cards will be equally capable at doing what you want
to do so I guess the choice comes down to you. Also, don't forget that AMD
are expected to announce details on the Radeon 8000 series very soon.
fadlatul wasilah: i like it
techgeek380: Hey Paul I'd like to ask which CPU do you reccomend the i5 3570k or the i7
3770k?? Also do you think the cooler master hyper 212evo is a good CPU
cooler and lastly any idea to what speed will I be able to overclock with
that cooler ?? Thanks
shynodaa: Can you do this test on XP, 7 and 8 on directX9 ?
FabioVtec: nvidia drivers are 100% for windows 8
Paul LastLevelTech: Cool, thanks.
nikolygtx: xp will win sure :)
fanmig: ХР хуита - без 11 директх
GaMeON159753456: What the hell? I installed windows 8 yesterday and I open metro and it runs
with 30-40 fps when in win 7 it ran with 50-70. Is this because win 8 just
sucks or the drivers don't work as good on it?
fadlatul wasilah: i like it
shynodaa: ты говно
Tru xo: if you do alot of video editing go with Nvidia
Paul LastLevelTech: Vintage.
dsub1994: no worries! :)
GameboyDaily: Are u going to be doing any more unboxings? eg: kindle fire nexus...
ClassicDragRace: Win7 4ever!
Paul LastLevelTech: Probably the Wii-U next.
Paul LastLevelTech: I can totally see your point.
Сергей Степаненко: 98 rules
deathscall1: If editing is not a job and is just a hobby (say like making AMVs or basic
video editing) then a workstation GPU is not much needed there. I wish you
luck and in the end the choice is yours because it is your build. It's like
legos and everyone has preferences so do a bit of research and find the
card that meats the needs you want.
