A core i3 sandy bridge or ivy bridge cpu will suffice for him.


Would you stop turret posting "buy a i3"? This is getting a bit ridiculous...that isn't a real solution for anyone except people buying a laptop that intend to play something like spider solitaire or minecraft.

This processor is incredibly powerful for multithreaded tasks . though per core performance is lesser to that of Intel processors, it surely destroys their pride in the multi core performance. This processor is wrongly compared with the Intel flagship processors. people who do so are dolts who misjudge it's category, it might be AMD's flagship but tends to fall in the same category as the top of the line core i5s. here competing with the core i5s it's surely an easy winner in majorly every aspect. considering the price point it can not be compared to current generation core i7s but it does easily defeat core i7 920 hailing from 1st generation. i have my older machine with core i7 920 setup on Asus Rampage II mobo. my newer machine has this FX8350 setup on Asrock 990FX Extreme4 mobo. for me AMD is a clear winner here. But the cons mentioned against this proc in online forums aren't altogether wrong either. i have faced certain BSODs, machine freezes, boot failures on my newer machine, though it's lil over a week old. the heatsink that comes along with this processor is extremely loud, it sounds more like the turbo jets of an aeroplane. sometimes the noise is audible even in my living room from the pc running in my bedroom. i had to lower the clock speed to 3.6 ghz so as to make the heatsink behave socially. other issue (though nothing went wrong) that i faced was that the HT link was running at much higher a frequency than NB. i had learned on several online forums that NB should never be lower than HT link. so when i encountered certain BSODs & system freezes, i lowered the HT link to 2200 Mhz & upped the NB to 2400 MHz. since then i haven't encountered any BSODs anymore. i am not sure whether these BSODs had anything to do with this NB-HT relation but my machine is running more stably since then. all in all it's a powerful processor, given that it's coupled with an equally feature rich & resourceful mobo

Honestly, if he doesn't game, an i3 is easily enough (provided he's not using workstation apps). If he is, the 8350 is a pretty good value.

Bro i had seen your batches from that you will be good enough who knows about AMD bro i heard that amd speed will not remain same after 1 year or 2 years of purchase. Is it true ?and amd is not good for multitasking as well as for medium applications and little heavy load application ?

AMD doesn't "lose speed" over time, and it is best when you're multitasking or using heavy loads. In lightly threaded applications is where it is really not fully utilized.

With FM2, go with something like A8-5600k or A10-5700/A10-5800k...those are the best performers.

bro i know these are best but they are more power hunger processors and then i cannot use my regular PSU and have to upgrade for Gold edition PSU which costs nearly 50$ which are out of my pocket

Should i go with A6 6400k releasing in June 2013 having AMD Radeon HD 8000+ series graphics rather than A8 or A10

A10-5700 or A10-6700 are only 65W TDP...they won't be "power hungry".

If you're going to overclock, that's not a bad option...but the A10-5700, if you're not going to overclock, is far more powerful in terms of both CPU and GPU on the chip.

No overclocking since already have the 3.9 GHz so need to that

But the A6 is only 2 cores...the A10 @ 3.4 GHz is 4 cores...and a better GPU on the die.

The A10 is the better way to go.

But are they shippable to India ? and my need is just processor , Motherboard , and PSU so any suggestion ?
and i heard that FM2 are different Mobo if you are planing for Corsair Vengeance with heat sink it will stuck for fitting is it true ?

Disregard him...he likes to make weird comments in the middle of threads that are completely off topic.

A lot of that stuff would ship to India...especially any of the stuff you can find on Amazon.com or some of the other sites listed there.
