Witch is best

Here are the specs


Intel CORE i3 3220 CPU - 3.3GHz
H77 Motherboard
4G DDR3 1600MHz RAM
500GB Hard Disk
22x DVD-Burner
ATI HD7750 Graphics Card
Thermaltake V3 Mid Tower + 500W PSU

Or

AMD FX-4300 CPU - 3.8GHz
AMD970 Motherboard
4G DDR3 1600MHz RAM
500G Hard Disk
22x DVD-Burner
ATI HD7750 Graphics Card
Thermaltake V3 Mid Tower + 500W PSU

So the two different things are the mother board and the CPU so witch is best out of them two

Thanks the sooner the better :)

  1. It depends on what you're using it for. Gaming the first one is better, most other task, the second one is better.
  2. Well they trade blows generally, so I'd probably consider the AMD over the Intel, just because you can OC the AMD, if needed. The Intel CPU won't OC, but does quite well on it's own. This kind of situation is going to be all up to you on which one to get.
  3. i3 is better for gaming, the 4300 might be better in multithreaded tasks. go for the i3. or the amd either will work

    haha sorry I'm going to be gaming mainly and maybe some school work such as office word but mainly gaming I think I'm going to get the intel i3 oh and what about the mother boards and I'm not over clocking anything

    If you can afford a few more $, I'd upgrade to the 7770 GPU:
