MY friend recommended i use the
AMD A10-5800K Trinity but i was still contemplating on if i should go for the AMD FX 8350 for the 4 more cores

I would both use the processors for gaming and performance for when i am rending in my 3d software or using Photoshop

thank you for taking the time to read the question and i hope u respond promptly.

8350 would destroy the a10, the a10 has a nice igpu but it's processing power isn't too amazing, if you are buying a separate graphics card get the 8350, also the 8350 has no igpu so you always need some sort of gpu to get a picture

These guys got it right ^ but out of curiosity, will you be using a graphics card? If not, you have to get the 5800K. Just making sure you are aware.

I'm actually having a major discussion about this on another thread. Its between the Intel CPU's and the 8350. We actually need a couple of people to help spread it out, its between me and this other guy. Btw, for what you're doing with it, you made a good decision. :)

For both gaming and rendering I would get the FX-8350 even if it was a quad core CPU. Comparing single core computational power the FX can process more data / execute more instructions per Hz than the A10 can.

Well how much extra cash would you have for a GPU? Because if you get an 8350 and are confined to a low end GPU you might as well get the 5800k and a 6670 and set them up in crossfire. If you can afford the 8350 and something like a 7870 though you'd be in really good shape.

The Sapphire HD 7870 is more card than the GTX 660Ti...you're better with the 7870.

Please share some solution love to one of us :)

Sapphire 7870XT is a pretty potent card...it's Tahiti based.

You should consider the FX-8320 if you want to save a bit of money. The FX-8350 is currently selling for $180 @ newegg after the $20 promo code. The FX-8320 is selling for $165 after using the promo code. It is not a huge savings, but the difference between the two CPUs is only 200MHz which would be very hard to notice in games since games are more reliant on the GPU rather than the CPU and both CPUs have very high clockspeeds so the difference is small.

+1 The FX 8320 is still a very solid buy.

true was and still am thinking about that but u get 4.0GHz on the FX 8350 without even tweaking the cpu

Yes, but you could likely OC the 8320 to 4.0 GHz without even changing stock voltage.

If your going with games that benefit with an AMD processor (there aren't many compared to Intel), then go with that. If your on a tight budget and can't fit in a GTX GPU or Intel CPU, then go with AMD. However if you have the money, it's much more worth it to go with the Intel and/or Nvidia.
