Is he selling you CPU/board and memory as a bundle? m 0 l EddieExecutor March 20, 2013 2:26:54 AM Tnx for reply Nah, i'm building new rig, first i'll buy CPU and than i'll find new MOBO. I've bought RAM allready so i just need i good CPU to start with. I got 2 options: 1st to go with NEW AMD or to buy used Intel. I'm willing to spare cca. 150€ on CPU, thats why i wish to see if there is any used intel at same price and same ranking with similar benchmarks m 0 l Related resources AMD FX 8320OC vs motherboard+intel pentium upgrade - Forum Intel i5-4690k and GTX 760 vs. AMD FX-6300 and GTX 770 - Forum Budget build: GPU + AMD vs Intel - Forum intel i5 4590 vs amd fx 8320 black edition - Forum Intel HD 2500 vs AMD HD 5450 1 GB? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Prices are in dollars, and it is primarily focused on gaming, but should give you a good idea of comparitive performance. Keep in mind that the AMD A-series comes with fairly powerful on-board graphics. I assume you would want to buy a discrete GPU? m 0 l EddieExecutor March 20, 2013 2:57:54 AM Ofc, i'll buy new GPU, my mind os on HD7870 m 0 l Herr_Koos a b à CPUs March 20, 2013 3:00:57 AM If you plan on shopping right away, I would recommend the i5-3470 as a good starting point. It is more than powerful enough to pair any single GPU available. Get the -k version only if you plan to overclock. m 0 l EddieExecutor March 20, 2013 4:02:46 AM Think i'll go for i5 3350 ... seems decent price and decent benchmark ... Tnx for suggestions. ..
