I currently run with this build:

Processor: AMD FX 8350 - Not overclocked
Graphics Card: Sapphire DualX R9 280X - Not overclocked
Mobo: 990fx Sabertooth R2.0
PSU: CS750M 750w Gold
RAM: 1600mhz HyperX Blue 16GB

I want to play games like and livestream them too:
- BF4
- Arma 3
- WoW
- DayZ
- GTA V (when released on PC)

I would love to play on high/max settings while still able to stream games at 60fps.


WITHOUT streaming

On WoW, on Max settings I tend to fluctuate between 30fps in crowded cities, 10fps in 25man raids, and 150 fps in 3v3 Arenas

Arma 3, using Parkcontroller I tend to get roughly 25 FPS no matter what game/server type I am playing.

BF4 tends to give me 40-75 frames on max depending on how much is going on in the area.

WITH Streaming, all of the FPS I mentioned above, gets halved or even worse.

So the big question is, should I swap out my 8350 CPU and 990FX MOBO for Intel's Variant?
