Intel i5 3570 vs i7 3770 vs FX 8350

Hello folks, I`ve been wanting to build a new PC and as I`m not too good at computers I thought I`d ask for more specialized help. I`ve come up with 3 different rigs:
1. AMD FX 8350 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 + AsRock 990FX Extreme 3
2. Intel i5 3570(not k, i dont want to overlock it)+ AsRock H77M + NVIDIA GE 630 1gb DDR5
3. Intel i7 3770(again not the 3770k)+ AsRock H77M and no other graphic card. I would just use Intel Graphics Hd
I`am not a gamer but I would like to run games like Hitman Absolution or Assassin`s Creed or LA Noire at medium settings. I would like to surf the web easily(including streaming HD videos without problem) and have others applications running at the same time. You can see I`m more inclined towards the processor than the graphics that`s because I want to be able to multitask smoothly. I would like to know which of these you recommend or if you have any other ideas. Thank you in advance! :D 
PS: For the RAM I was thinking 2x4GB 1333mhz for all of the processors.

More about : intel 3570 3770 8350

I would pick 1. AMD FX 8350 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 + AsRock 990FX Extreme 3 As a better gaming rig. Also I suggest HD7750 if possible.


If I just need a better powerful processor not a gamer then 3. Intel i7 3770(again not the 3770k)+ AsRock H77M and no other graphic card.


Thanks

Get a cheaper cpu like a fx 6300 or fx 8320 and a better gpu. What's your budget?

My budget for these 3 would be about 450 dollars but I live in Romania and here things are a bit expensive. Also do you think with the Intel Hd 4000 graphics I could play those games at medium settings? Thank you for your reply.

What game would you be playing? It depends on the games. I can test out Diablo 3 to see how well it performs at low setting. But definitely not Graphic extensive games like Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Crysis 3. i5 3570 sandy bridge is a good choice. Again it depends what you do with your PC, tell us what you do on a daily bases on the PC.

Hello thank you for your reply. I want to play games like Hitman Absolution, Assasin„s Creed III, Batman Arkham City, LA NOIRE. But usually at my PC I surf the net and watch tv series online(mostly in HD format) youtube videos and i run some music applications. I want to be able to run multiple applications including games at the same time without lagging. I mostly want a fast processor that„s why I said im mopre inclined towards spending more on the processor than on the gpu.
Thanks again for our reply.

Option 1 is really the only one that will give you reasonable gaming experience. Graphics are lacking on the other two.

Intel HD4000 graphics would not play hitman absolution except, perhaps, on low settings, and even then, the frame rate would be poor...it's just not a good solution.

For all you need to do the FX 8350 and a better GPU would do it as well or better than the other 2 options you posted.

From the needs you listed, your prioritization of processor over GPU is misplaced. A top tier processor and a low tier GPU is a very poor way to go if you're interested in gaming but have a small budget. If gaming is a concern, jumping down to a US $100-type CPU like a Phenom IIx4 and using the difference to get into the 7850/660 GPU range will make you much happier in the longer run - you haven't listed any usage that would be at all concerning to even lesser CPUs. Unless you're, say, doing some heavy modeling or running very intensive Monte Carlo simulations, but you haven't said that's the case!

Get AMD 7850 card and a good CPU like 8350, the mother board, you got to make sure they're compatible with the 8350 CPU, and for the graphic card, dont worry id the card says PCIe 3.0 and the motherboard says PCIe 2.0 they will still work, the performance aren't a big differences. Good Motherboard brand;s MSI, Gigabyte, ASRock, ASUS. They all have pro's and con's. Make sure you read the reviews to avoid probable causes.

Would a 7750 suffice? That is the most that I could afford to spend on a gpu. Also between the fx 8350 and the i5 3570 which would be better?

What is your budget really? 450? If so I can find something that can go within that price. So it can handle future gaming. 7750 is a good card. Go with Sapphire, XFX, or HIS. I am still wondering on CPU. I just need to know your Budget. You're buying motherboard as well?

That's exactly What I have said in beginning Just pair the HD7750 with
AMD FX-4100 Quad Core 3.6GHz Bulldozer Processor,
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 MotherBoard
2x4GB Corsair xms3 DDR3 Ram

Most cost effective gaming Combo.

Thanks

How about this>

Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 <<You can go with i5 2500 or FX 8350>>

ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 AM3+ AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard(70 bucks at Newegg.)
or
ASUS P8H77-M LE LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS (70 bucks on Newegg. Not sure how much it is at your location)

HIS iCooler H777F1G2M Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (100 bucks at Newegg.)

Copy and paste it on Google, the search would find it for you at the lowest cost.

the best combo for the price is the fx 6300+gigabyte ga970a ud3+nvidia gtx 650ti boost. The fx 6300 is a good enough multitasker.

That setup is OK but not cost effective gaming combo. It all depends on OP he can pick a 3930k with gt630 a gaming combo or a pentium g860 with HD7850 We are just here to show the best combo, the decision is entirely on the OP and his preference.
