Hey I've got an opportunity to buy a G4400 cheap and I'm wondering if I build a really cheap system what would the negatives be re: games I couldn't play?
That's really it for the most part. I know it's not 4 true cores, and that we're entering an era where games are using more cores a lot more, but this could save me some dough until I really need something better. It would free up $ for a card whereas now I only have a GTX 750 (1GB).
I mostly play older games but would like the ability to get into some newer titles. Anything else like video editing can wait. May still go for the Ryzen 5 1400 but the price of GPU's is killing me. I think 4 core/8 thread is best for me so I'm thinking the Ryzen or go cheap and wait.
Any input re: titles I could and couldn't play would be useful. Seems the $$ to OC this chip (it can be done) outweighs spending on that but for the basic mobo's I'd virtually only have to buy a mobo, ram and replace my card.
