Is he selling you CPU/board and memory as a bundle? 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 Related resources Intel i3 3240 vs AMD FX-6300 - Forum Intel Core i3 4340 Vs Amd Fx 8350 - Forum AMD FX-8320 vs Intel Core i5-3570K? - Forum AMD vs Intel Virtualization: KVM VPS - Forum amd vs intel - 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? EddieExecutor March 20, 2013 2:57:54 AM Ofc, i'll buy new GPU, my mind os on HD7870 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. EddieExecutor March 20, 2013 4:02:46 AM Think i'll go for i5 3350 ... seems decent price and decent benchmark ... Tnx for suggestions. ..
