i7 7700 Vs i5 7600K

Recommended Posts

Afternoon all,


For a new build for exclusively P3D, as the title says, what would be preferred? Said i5 is much cheaper and will save me £100+, but would the i7 CPU give a sizable performance gain? I plan to use it alongside the 6GB GTX1060.

Cheers,

Oliver Mitchell.

Why are you going for 3 generations old CPU?

9600K is £239.99 from OCUK.

9700K is £359.

He may have a Z270 board. Thus looking at 7600K. Might not be able to afford a new board. He would need Z370 or Z390 for 9 series.

Possibly, but he does say its a new build

Thanks guys,


I'm going for older CPUs purely to keep the cost down, although it seems I may be able to stretch to the 9th gen - between the i5 9600K (3.7ghz to 4.6ghz) and the i7 9700K (3.6ghz to 4.9ghz), would the performance gain be hugely noticeable, as in is it worth the extra £100ish? I'd ideally be looking for 30fps in the PMDG NGX, ORBX Global, Active Sky and payware scenery added?

EDIT: I planned on running with a GTX1060 6GB. Would this bottleneck the either i7 8700k or 9700k, or the i5 8600k or 9600k?

 

Cheers,

Oliver Mitchell.

The 9600K will run very well.  With the money saved go for a 1070ti/1080

a 1060 will be seriously bottleneck your CPU choices. as said 1070ti (for cost conscious) or a 1080 if you can get one cheap.

Just remember with P3D that CPU clock is still king, go as fast as you can!

Other posters are right though, a 1060 will bottleneck the system. I have a 980 and it bottlenecks my overclocked 2500K, so I'd say a 980Ti or 1080 as a minimum, alongside a 9600K.
