Ask a PC expert: Should you spend more on a CPU or a graphics card?
In this video, PCWorld CPU guru Gordon Mah Ung and GPU expert Brad Chacos weave their way through a crucial question: Should you spend more on your graphics card or your processor?
Like all things in life, striking a balance between the two is probably the best answer for most people, especially gamers. But what you spend on your computer should be tied to the workloads you plan on running. Brad and Gordon delve into what sort of workloads are CPU-limited and GPU-limited, to give you an idea of when it might be worth spending more on one or the other. There’s no “right” answer to this question. There’s only the right answer for you. But if you’re not sure what your workloads need, play it safe by keeping the budget or class of your processor and graphics card roughly equal.
