Hi guys which is better for gaming?

Xeon W3565 or Core i5-2500 

 

I know that both of them are not that good, but that's what i have now...

 

P.S: i'm not planing to overclock any of them.

Thanks!

They say i5.

 

I say neither since I run with i7-5820K on LGA 2011 monster that goes by the name of Rampage V.

If you have not purchased anything go with the i5. Xeon's is a server CPU. The i5 also uses less power and uses faster RAM. The motherboard for the i5 should is cheaper too. But, both use a different socket so it would depend on what socket your motherboard has if already purchased or available.

As Nighthawke posted go with the i7 if possible.

Core i7 is too expensive for me in the meanwile :(

 

i already have those 2 CPUs..

 

I could purchase an intel Core i3-6100 but i thought it's not that good for gaming, so i would wait with what i have and save some money for an i7... I think it makes more sense than spending my money on an i3.

Good idea. I assume you do not have a motherboard yet. Save your money for a better CPU. You may want to check out the new Ryzen processor from AMD which is going to be released shortly.

No i didn't purchase any mobo yet.

Are there any suggestions for a good mobo that support a 1151 socket and in the price range till 200 $/€  ??

Actually i don't have any experience with AMD CPUs.. i've been always an intel guy...  :/

AMD simple of late, very cheap to buy cpus with lots of cores but slower when it comes to single core vs single core vs a same price point cpu from Intel, besides that the AMD cpus tend to make a lot of heat, one AMd cpu i have my eyes on of late is a 6 core and is unlocked and only gos for $99 real deal, just sucks its 99TDP but if i were making a new system my self i might go for it, $99 is super cheap for a 6 core.

 

As for the Ryzen processor from AMD im looking forward my self to see what it can do and at what price point.

So what would you buy for a new budget gaming-PC ?

 

I mean CPU & Motherboard, and would you recommend this GPU: https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-GTX-1050-Ti-GAMING-4G.html#hero-overview ?

I know that both of them are not that good, but that's what i have now...

Thanks!

 

Xeon: Quad core Westmere, HT, 3.20 GHz/3.46 GHz Turbo

 

i5: Quad core Sandy Bridge, no HT, 3.3 GHz/3.7 GHz Turbo

 

Overall Xeon I consider Xeon better because of HT.

 

If you have not purchased anything go with the i5. Xeon's is a server CPU.

 

That Xeon is nothing else than i7+ECC memory support with name Xeon slapped on it. As you can see here http://ark.intel.com/compare/37148,39721

 

Basically cheapest Xeons are just i5/i7 CPU's with different name (and some features that are useless on desktop).

 

Passmark is crappy software.

I suggest waiting for Ryzen. Intel CPU's are either overpriced (all 8+ core CPU's), have very expensive motherboards (all LGA2011-3 ones) or have very poor build quality (all LG1151 CPU's). So with Intel you only have bad choices available.

i3 6100 is a great budget CPU. It has brilliant single core performance and hyperthreading to ease the gap between 4 core i5's and the i3 itself.

Oups was thinking about the AMD FX-6300 Vishera core, seem i was off on the price point, its $150 on newegg, the 4 core version of the same chip is the one thats $99, they both over clock to close to 5000mgz as well, if you have the cooling that is.
 

 

So what would you buy for a new budget gaming-PC ?

Hard pick from AMD vs intel at the same price for me, and if i were looking for a new system i would be all over the hardware review sites, all i know mobo wise is id want 2 normal pci and 2 ps2 ports if i can get em, wouldn't mind as well one ide and one floppy connector but sadly i don't think new mobo come with that anymore.

 

Video card looks killer.
