So what's the point of spending 30k more? I want something that actually makes a difference. Help please?

First let's clear that we boath are referring to this rig-

Intel Core i5 4570 (13700)
Asus H87M-E (7900)
Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill RipjawsX 4GB x2 1600Mhz (5200)
Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X (32800)
WD AV-GP 2 TB (6300)
Seasonic SS-750AM (7400)
Corsair 400R (5300)
Cooler Master Devastator Gaming Bundle (3000)
APC 1100VA UPS (5400)
benq gl2450 (10800)
Cooler Master Hyper 212x (3000)

Total: 1,00,800

> It has 8 GB RAM instead of 4 GB.
> It has a 2 TB HDD.
> It has a much better PSU.
> It has a much much better cabinet.
> It has gaming KB and mouse.
> It has a 1.1 kVA UPS.
> It has a much better and bigger monitor.
> It has an aftermarket CPU cooler.

Hope the picture is clear now. Don't be naive.

+1. however hyper 101 does not make any sense for 1.5k. look for atleast hyper 212x. he might need to overclock it to cope with r9 290,i think so.

see here AnandTech | Bench - CPU. xeon e3 1245v3 is essentially an i7 4770 which is just 100mhz downclocked than i7 4770k.

How about an i5 4440?

i dont really know. but at-least in some games which are more cpu bound, small overclocks may be necessary. ask [MENTION=68896]Cilus[/MENTION].

This :cool:

go for sapphire or the one mentioned in my rig in my signature.
even my rig performs well with crysis 3 @ ultra 1080p
which i bought for 67k 4 months ago
 

Cilus

laborare est orare
With Core i5 4440 and Sapphire R9 290 Tri X, you will get better Frame rates than FX-8320. Now if you are ready for small overclocking then bumping the speed a little like 200 to 300 MHz will give you slightly better FPS. If you can accommodate i5 and 290 then go with it. Else FX-8320 + 290 Tri-X.

Thanks for clearing that up Cilus...
Also came to know that the Sapphire Tri X is a very cool(temp. wise) and quiet card.
