Questions and Answers

  • Question: Hey,
    Currently my build is:
    i3 4150 CPU
    r7 265x Sapphire GPU
    500w bronze PSU
    8gb of DDR3 hyper-x ram
    B85M-E45 MSI Motherboard

    Now I've had this build for a while (I've built it myself) so I'm thinking into upgrading.
    After some research on my parts and current game demands I have came to a conclusion I will get more benefit from upgrading my GPU instead of my CPU.

    My question is,
    Is an upgrade from an R7 265x to RX 470 a viable option/choice, and if there is a better one, what is it (what GPU would you recommend)?

    -I would be happy to spend £150 on a new GPU, however I can go a bit over (please don't say GTX Black titan, I'd have to rob my family).

    Answer: http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-R7-265-vs-AMD-RX-470/3296vs3640

    You will see nearly double the performance with a RX 470.
