I wish to upgrade my current i3 2100 3.1GHz cpu & Intel dh61ww mobo... I chose b/w the MSI Z87-G43 mobo & i5 4670k cpu which support LGA 1150. I also consider Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 mobo & AMD FX 8350 cpu. I'm totally confused b/w these combos. I'm a gamer & Please help me out & refer me the best for Gaming.

There's little doubt that Intel processors outperform AMD for games. There is much supporting evidence on this site.

Your Intel 4670k is the best gaming chip hands down. It's also the most expensive... So it really depends on what your budget is.

Amd's 8350 isn't a bad chip especially for a budget build.

You should give us more info...There is a lot more to a gaming build then just the chip and mobo.
Total budget you want to spend?
Games your looking to play and at what resolution?

For gaming today, the 4670K is superior in most cases, but I would get a 3570K since it has practically the same performance, for less and runs cooler. The 8350 is not that far behind though (Usually 3-5 FPS) For next-gen console games, which are based off 8-core AMD processors quite a bit weaker than the 8350, the FX8350 might get an advantage. There are also AMD optimized games such as Battlefield 4 being released. If you are heavy multitasker or stream and edit videos while also gaming, I would go for the 8350 due to its 8-core design that helps in those tasks. If you just want to enjoy a game and play it the smoothest 3570K is the way2go.

Here is a nice 3570K + AsRock Extreme6 + a good cooler combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... + http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... + http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

AMD FX 8350 is a pretty decent overclocker, but intel obviously beats AMD (usually) when it comes to OCing.
I mean FX 8350 is better than most intel CPUs but a CPU like i5-4670k (which I currently use) is much more efficient in taking up less voltage and giving off higher clock speed.
Generally, AMD FX series processors was a disappointment because of poor performance and high power consumption.
But intel doesn't seem to have that big of a problem like the FX series do.

The Intel & AMD combo costs around as same price abt Rs.25000(abt $410-420)
and I use to play Max Payne 3, NFS MW 2012 currently the most, and looking forward for better games ( At 1600x900 resn.)

I also wish to buy a cooler, may be hyper 212 evo or suggest me better at its price range(around 40 usd in india)

depends what gpu you are getting, if its low-mid maybe safe some money and get a fx6300 instead and spend the saved money on a better gpu!

The best value for money on a processor + motherboard combo is honestly the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 + an FX 8320 (Unless you want to pay more for 200MHz in turbo clock that can be made up easily... Some of the people on the thread over exaggerate Intel's gaming lead a bit. Also, eom, the 4670K is pretty bad when it comes to overclocking compared to Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge. I honestly would get a Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 + FX8320 due to the performance gap in gaming being so minor for the extra price you pay.

PS: If anyone tells you about the higher power consumption of the 8320 will make you pay more in the long run, unless you run it for 4 years almost non-stop at load, it will not be more expensive than the 4670K's initial price, which consumes power too :p

M5A99FX PRO R2.0 and 8320, you can then get a Hyper 212 EVO for the same price as the 8350+M5A99FX PRO R2.0 combo.

honestly when the 4670 and the 8350 are the same price. 4670. There is a reason why its almost £60 more expensive here.
