AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE vs Intel I3 2100 for gaming

Hi all,

I am starting a new build and I have narrowed it down to these two. I will be playing simulators and management games such as Simcity 5. I am not very interested in oc'ing since I am afraid I will fail and I don't think I can afford an aftermarket cooler.

  1. For Simcity, go with the Intel.
    It just doesn't run that well on AMD CPU's.
