Despite all info here. from what i've seen they're almost the same, AMD is faster in some games and Intel is faster in other titles...

They're about the same price, the same performance, they both overclock well but once overclocked the 3570k at 4.5ghz is the same as the 8350 at 5ghz (the intel is faster if they run at the same clock) 8350@4ghz (stock) vs intel 3570k 3.4ghz is the same too...

The AMD use more power than the Intel ones but parts (motherboard in perticular) tends to be cheaper... Also Intel needs specific 1.5V memory while AMD run with every memory here or almost...

My choice will be the 3570k for gaming and the 8350 if you render video or do some 3d creation...

Well both are good CPUs. The Intel i5 3570k is usually the best option when it comes to gaming. The FX 8350 has it's benefits, but overall I believe the i5 3570k is the better option.

Things to consider:
* If you go with the i5 3570k buy a Z77 based mobo, so you can have all of the OC'ing options that you might want later.
* If you go with the AMD FX 8350, I would consider the 990FX based mobo if you can afford it. It might possibly have better upgrade options down the road.

anything thats a few seconds faster YES SECONDS or 1-5 fps more! really doesnt justify the price diff.

grab the 8350 and save being ripped off.

in terms of better which it is, can u tell us how better fps and how much % and also what the extra percentage equates too and if it is noticeable? also can the human eye spot the difference or are we relying on benchmarks here? which in my opinion should be turned into time! (1 sec, 2 secs etc etc) if its secs or 1-5 fps i really dont see how ppl justify intel being much more better. real word scenario.
