i5 3450 vs R5 1600 OC

Hi!

I have a good opportunity to upgrade my old gaming system (i5 3450) to a R5 1600 (and OC it). I will use my actual GPU in this new system, a Nitro+ RX480 8GB OC.

Is it worth it or no?

Thanks!

  1. 1600 will beat it by a good distance, even better when it's optimized.

    Can you elaborate on that? I see many people here saying that it isn't worth to upgrade a 4440 to a 1600 (and the 4440 is = 3450 in terms of performance).

    I'm a bit confused if you will gain any performance with this upgrade :(

    That doesn't say much to me... I tried to find some bechmarks to compare the 2, and it doesn't seem to have any big difference in fps, at least with the RX480. Am I wrong?

  4. I would say it's worth it.

  5. Worth it, those 12 threads are pretty neat, and with the OC, that 480rx will always be well fed in games.

    BTW, can you tell me a good power supply for this system? (Amazon.es)
