Hey all. Interested in upgrading my AMD processor to one that is close in performance of the top range Intel i5s. 5th to 7th generations I'm guessing.
Motherboard: Gigabyte F2A88X-D3H
Processor: AMD Athlon X4 860K Quad Core
Video Card: MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (8GB)
Memory: Avexir Core Series 8GB DDR3-1600 [Qty 2]
Power Supply: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
Just going off of pcpartpicker the AMD A10-6800K 4.1GHz Quad-Core is the highest reviewed chip compatible with my motherboard. Also heard of AMD's claim to be on par with i7s with their announced Ryzen chip. Even with their demonstration(s) I'm uncertain if it will deliver let alone if I need that much power. Admittedly I don't game intensely; GTA V is the most demanding game I own with some simulators and novice video editing here and there.
Any suggestions? Thank you for your time.
