So my freind is buying a new Pc and he has decide on two options but he is not shore which one to get.Personally i think the Amd is better but i would like a second opition before tell him which one he should get.
Try diging up some ancient rig you have lying around, and walk him through the process of building one, if he won't be convinced verbally. Really, building a PC is incredibly simple, considering their almost completely modular, even I was able to do it, and that's saying a lot. XD
They will all be shit. Build your own. The difference will be noticable, since they will both be unusable and will blow up in your face and they will hire mitt romney to come to your house and rape you.
But for gaming the gpu matters most, most games arent cpu limited
neither when you buy a prebuilt computer they cheap out on everything except the stuff people look for, cpu hdd gpu ram
they cant really cheap out on a i7 3770k
the hdd can have 1kb cache sure its 7200 rpm and 1tb but what brand, how many platters?
also the ram they can buy 32 gigs of the cheapest stuff and it actually might be better going for a higher quality 8 gb kit, you have the money to build your own system I can see and the time if your on these forums (doesn't take long) and just do a little more research, you'd get a better balanced pc, I'd say to pick one of Logan's builds but he hasn't done new one in a while.
