i5 4440 vs FX-6300?

THIS PC IS STRICTLY FOR GAMING PURPOSE nd WATCHING fHD MOVIES ONLY (no software related work)!!

Now i know 6300 is hell of a processor for gaming but its "no igpu" bothers me.
Right i have two config in my mind, please help me choosing (or give a better idea)

1) i5 4440 (or 4430 whichever is worthy) has igpu HD4600, without discrete GPU it can be used for playing a lot of games- i intend to play GTA4, COD series, Diablo etc for the time being at med setting which will take me around 6-8 months to complete then add maybe R7 260x for more hardcore gaming- GTA5, Battlefield4, Crysis, Bioshock, Batman etc
So i5 4440 =12K (at Costtocost) + 5-5.5K mobo (yet to be decided) + 3K RAM (Corsair veng 4gb) +2.5K PSU (not decided) + 4K HDD (Toshiba with 5 yr warranty) + 1K DVD writer (Asus or HP) + 2K Cabinet
a total of around 31K!

2) FX-6300 = 7.5K + 5.5K mobo (GA DS3) + 8K GPU HD 7770 + 3K RAM (Corsair veng 4gb) +2.5K PSU (not decided) + 4K HDD (Toshiba with 5 yr warranty) + 1K DVD writer (Asus or HP) + 2K Cabinet

total = 33.5K

Now i considered option (1) hearing FX series will soon be discontinued + its no igpu constrains me to a buy a discrete one right now + FX option is not future proof + i wont upgrade my rig ever i guess so its a long run and hence i5 less power consumption can save me money!!

Which one should i go with nd why?

Yar i deliberately did not answered that because then thread would have been way too big and irksome to read.
I already told my Purpose and components need to buy!!

One or two "nd" here and there doesnt mean hardcore SMS lingo i guess.

why are u proposing i5 4570 over 4440?? any particular reason - will 4440 bottleneck with r7 260x:wink:??

In i5 4440 some instruction sets are missing to fully utilize your CPU & there is no turbo boost in i5 4440 so you need to go for i5 4570.OK.

Core i5 4570 is equal to Core i5 4670(k) in terms of performance but not Core i5 4440.OK.

OK, its hell of a propsal if 4570 is equivalent to 4670K becoz price difference is around 3K!!
I know "K" are unlocked and meant for overclocking, so can i5 4570 be overclocked like "K"??

At stock speed i5 4670(k) is having equal performance to i5 4570.
No, i5 4570 cannot be overclocked but you can use the Turbo Boost function in the bios to increase 200MHz most.OK.

Oooh yeah, now this is the kind of info i was expecting! 4570 is i will go with but am i right with
1) HD 4600 can play those games at med setting?? (checked on game debate nd showed its playable but i doubt on its authenticity as they give i5 9 pts nd 6300 10 pts + displaying GTA 5 pc reqmnts too which is not even released)
2) Is this more future proof then 6300?? (i mean game released after two yrs can be played by upgrading GPU)
3) Do i really save some worthy bucks on less power consumption??

1)yes at low-med settings it can.Game debate is not fully reliable and accurate.I5 beats fx 6300 in every single game by good margin.

2)yes if fx 6300 can handle games in future,then no doubt i5 will also handle it,so i5 can play games in future by upgrading gpu

3)yes you save but not a huge amount.

whenever we add up a discrete GPU (radeon) with igpu does it act as crossfire or discrete gpu takes over completely?

Intel is having a provision not for SLI/CF of both the iGPU & discreet GPU but when you do less demanding tasks then VirtuMVP takes over & run with iGPU but when you are doing more demanding tasks then discreet GPU (standalone GPU) takes over. Its called GPU Virtualisation. When you open the application called VirtuMVP, there you will see both discreet & iGPU running parallel but you can enable even either 1 of them also in that application called VirtuMVP by LucidLogic.OK.
Eg: Office Applications,Skyrim (like games) -iGPU
CAD, Maya, BF4 (like games) -Discreet GPU

This GPU Virtualisation is also helpful to save power a lot.

What resolution are you trying to play at?

I have Intel HD 4600 [i5 -4570] and i can play Sleeping dogs @ 720p @ medium settings @ 30fps average
CS:GO, DotA maxed out 1080p no problem
Borderlands 2 medium settings 720p runs smoothly with 50fps

If we can ignore the power consumption, What will the better option between 4th gen haswell i5 vs AMD A10 series APU ?

Its an apple to apple comparison because both have iGPU.

please clarify on this. also what instruction sets are missing in i5 4440?

@op, if you can get an i5 now and gpu later, look no furthur.get it.

In cpu performance i5 > a10

In igpu performance a10 > i5

if you want to add discrete gpu for e.g i5 + gtx 660 > a10 + gtx 660.

Thank you for your view. Hope you have also considered the price one has to pay for i5 and A10? What is there Value-4-Money index in CPUBenchmarking ?

forget about benchmarks & base your decision on how much your budget is & what your usage scenario is.if you play games most often & intend to get a graphics card in near future then get intel.if you don't know much about cores & multi threading or don't play/little gaming then get whatever is cheaper.if you care very much about multi threading & also know a lot about it get amd.
