Best bang for the buck all around CPU Sept 2013

Hi there :)

I'm just curious what you folks would consider the best all around CPU for the money is? :)

By "all around" I mean capable of gaming well at high settings, doing some video encoding, photoshop, web surfing, streaming videos, etc.. Things most computer users do on a daily basis.

Thank you for your time. :)

I did search & look around on the forums before asking.

  1. Intel? AMD? Price range?
  2. For amd i vote 8350 for intel i vote i5
  3. An i5 will be a disservice to you for video editing. The i7 4770k is the best money for you dollar on Intel for a gaming/editing/photoshop rig.

    If only gaming, then go for an i5 4670K instead.
  4. yes, that is gaming specific.. i was talking about all around. :) i did read other threads, articles & forums.. just wanted your guys' opinions.

    as for intel/amd/price range.. it's irrelevant. i just wanted your thoughts on the subject. :)

    If price is no object, go with the above mentioned i7. If you want an all round processor for the tasks you mentioned, at a smaller price, look at the AMD FX-8350.
