cyberpower and one has a intel i7 4770k and the other has a fx 8350 and the same video card radeon and i read someone the 8 cores from the fx 8350 will work better for gaming in the future is that true i know intel is a little better plus it cost more but on here the intel one is 10$ more but i dont think so ill just check again and see why

More about : intel 4770k 8350

The fx 8350 is actually only a four core processor, it has two logical cores to each physical one (four physical x 2 = 8 logical) meaning they share resources and are far less efficient. By the time gaming has evolved to make use of more than the 4 cores, the 8350 will be redundant and low spec anyway, go with the i7 if thats the only difference.

Its possible that you'll be better off with AMD for next gen considering the consoles are using AMD Jaguar processors that presumably closely mimic AMD's PC architecture and will therefore be preferentially optimised by developers over Intel CPU's. 8 cores is the imminent standard for games.

That said, as of right now, Intel has far superior processors for current gen games and also have 8 threads (4 cores, but each core runs two threads ie. hyperthreading) which could place them on par with AMD. I guess theres unfortunately no way of knowing until concrete benchmarks of next gen titles are released towards the end of this year.

If the difference really is $10, then go for the intel, no question.

I agree with drtoast, Intel i7 no question. Look up some benchmarks if you need further validation.

It will not be just $10. from where I live, the 8350 costs almost half of 4770K.
