ok so i was going to go with the fx 8350 for the 8 cores but i dont think they are true 8 cores but i know intel i7 is good nd i know i5 3570k and i7 3770k are able to be compared to the fx 8350 but intel still beats it by a little but do you think i should go with the intel i7 4770k because its newer and better then intel i7 3770k...i got a radeon 7970 and would it even make a differance in the cpu i got please someone help me out here.....the games ill like to play i want to max or even almost max them out do you think the 8350 will max them or the intel will be better ill mostly want to play arma 3 alpha and mabey bf3 and grand theft auto and i was thinking should i get the 8350 and when arma 3 is released it will work better or just go intel .specs radeon 7970
8gb crosair ram
750 psu
gigabyte 990fx or Gigabyte Z87-HD3 Intel Z87 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ Ultra Durable 4 Plus

cooler master hyper evo
and noise reducers(not sure if you need to know the fans or noise reducers but i think it may preform better if its cooler mabey)

i7-4770k is way better for gaming.

I don't even need to show you the benchmarks, because the difference is so big that only the craziest fanboy would disagree.

I just want you to read this quote from the article, "AMD set to release 5GHz-clocked FX-9590 CPU"

- "AMD's bombastic announcement cannot hide the fact that the best FX chips are barely a performance match for the quad-core Core i7-4770K processor, let alone the six-core Core i7-3970X, so we doubt that Intel is worried."

well...
1, the 8 cores is a marketing gimmick. FX is a modular CPU and uses 4 modules /or 4x2 crippled cores/. Same way as Intel i7 uses 4 cores /4+4 cores - 4 physical + 4 virtual/

2, FX-8350 is set to compete with i5-3570K /4 modules vs 4 Intel cores/. In single-threaded apps it gets owned by anything Intel-like at the same frequency, in lightly threaded it is somewhere between i3 and i5, in some heavily threaded apps it tops i5. There are some tests it beats even i7, but then again - you're running games, not some full time encoding machine.

3, FX-8350 has a higher TDP which means more power consumption (which can be ignored). It also means you have to get a better case and a way better cooler compared to i5/i7 which can be very well cooled passively...

So, since you want to play games, browse net and/or do some school work - you are better off with the Intel route. And as long you don't plan to do some CAD, encode, edit or dabble with audio/video, do live streams, and virtualize like crazy, you are better off with i5 with a decent cooler and throw the rest into a decent graphic card :D

thanks do you know when the fx 9590 will be released or how much it may be and can you give me more information on it and i may over clock the intel i7 4770k what do you think i can get to on this mother board [CrossFireX] Gigabyte Z87-HD3 Intel Z87 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ Ultra Durable 4 Plus

thanks for the help and what over clock do you think i can get on the intel i7 4770k with a [CrossFireX] Gigabyte Z87-HD3 Intel Z87 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ Ultra Durable 4 Plus

Dunno really, according to various sources you can go up to 4.7 GHz with a H80 /or H100/... Some even report stable 5GHz... Depends mostly on your cooler and your luck... /N2 or dice can easily break through 7 GHz, but.../

do you think a Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System be better then the evo but it says the evo is for extreme over clocking this just says overclock certified

1) Please do a research on Haswell chips having overclocking issues with producing too much heat and consuming too much power.

2) In terms of gaming, Intel only has advantage of around 5-15 fps.

3) There is no such thing as Intel lets AMD eat dust. Intel is only good at benchmarks and figures. Put your hands on an AMD gaming machine to see for yourself.

4) Search for other threads here where people are arguing between 8350 and 4770/4670. You need to listen to both sides.

5) Read topics on other forums aside from tomshardware

Dont buy intel i7 4770k! Buy FX-9590! FX-9590 is clear over i7-4770K in new games and streaming. i7-4770K support just 1600mhz memory RAM but FX is natively 1866mhz. The new games ported from console to PC can play better with AMD cpu-s, cos AMD win the PS4 battle.

You have a 3.5ghz clock versus a 5.0ghz clock for comparison..

I have literally watched a 4770k 1150 socket CPU clocked under a FX-8350, and the FX-8350 not perform as well.
5.0 ghz FX-8350 versus a 4.7 ghz i7 4770k, both on water... Guess which one pulled ahead..??
I'll give you a hint, NOT AMD.
In a lot of things you won't see any real kind of difference, but the 4770k (4) core just makes more sense then a power hungry FX Vishera chip, I had an FX-8120, and it was a joke compared to my Phenom II x6 1100t at 4.2ghz, it was really a downgrade.
Vishera is a little bit of an improvement over Zambezi, but not enough to stay with AMD.

As far as Gaming goes, run an older RTS and watch the Intel system NOT lag like crazy with tons of units on the board, then watch the AMD system.. Yep. The 4770k is a better option, I have seen it first hand.

If you are only wanting the CPU for gaming then the i5-4670K http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CO8TBOW is the best option. An i7 only gives you the benefit of Hyperthreading which 95% of games don't even take advantage of.

The FX-8350 is a nice CPU but is bested by the 4670K for gaming purposes only. If you want to do video editing or rendering then you want the i7 or the 8350 with the i7 being the better choice.
