Better gpu or better cpu? gaming/readering

I saw some benchmarks and the gtx660ti is quite a leap from the 660.
I'll record games and render videos.

My system was going to be:
-fsp aurum 80 plus gold 600w
-fx8320
-gtx660
-m5a97 evo r2.0
-300r
-500gb hdd
-8gb ram 1600mhz ddr3

But I could change the top three parts to stay with the same price:
-fx6300
-cx600m
-gtx660ti

What should I pick? (I won't OC)

  1. For gaming, definitely go with a better GPU rather than a better CPU. However, If I were you, I'd switch to an Intel processor, as they are generally better overall for gaming.
  2. Not at all. AMD is much better bang for the buck. And I said is for rendering as well. So, you didn't answered my question.

    It may appear that way, but it isnt.

    If you want to only do rendering, go AMD. If you want to do everything else plus rendering, go 3770k.
  4. 3770k is like.. hmm... the double of 8320
    and i've seen the 8350 vs i5-3570k and the amd wins like a boss. and in streaming it kills
  5. i dont wanna fight over the amd vs intel enough for me of that. dont care what you think

    well, depends... AMD is a rollercoaster.
    The problem with AMD is that it is optimized for multithreaded tasks - if you encode/stream video it owns the i5. But if it comes to everyday tasks and playing games the i5 wins over the amd /since games run optimally at 2-4 cores and intel has higher core per clock performance/.

    tl/dr> peterisluego is right - If you're building a dedicated video editing machine on which you'll play games from time to time - go for AMD. If you plan on gaming and edit a video from time to time go with i5. If you want to do everything like a boss go for the i7.
  7. I don't care about Intel vs amd. I'll just get the eight core with the 7870 thanks anyway
