MSI Z97 Gaming 7 Motherboard and AMD vs Intel For Gaming PC 2014


Gaming pcs are good fow various tasks, but especially for gaming. If you have read about my dream gaming pc then you know these rigs can become quite pricey, but you could have a moderately good gaming pc for $500 too. The MSI Z97 Gaming 7 Motherboard, which has a review in the video from above, has Socket LGA 1150, very well suited for Intel i7 and 3-way CrossFireX and 2-way SLI ready. What would you want more? Well, a ton of USB ports, maybe, which it has.

Now, if you wanted to check whether AMD of Intel is best to use for gaming, please check the video from below:

AMD provides fairly close performance to the i series from Intel, but at a cost 10-30% smaller. If you have enough money to spend, then an Intel i7 is the way to go, otherwise, you can buy an AMD FX 9590 and you’ll be as happy as it gets.

  1. I agree, a decent gaming PC can get quite expensive, but $500 can buy you something that will do the job. Anything less than that and you will have some problems with poor quality gaming!
