Intel core i3 or Amd fx-4300 for office use

I have to build a system for office use purely. I have to run 3/4 progs simultaneously, such as office, email, database, QuickBooks. Which CPU would be better? Also need to run 3 monitors, through nVidia video card (i have card). Thanks for your input.

  1. I'd choose the cheapest option. Any of them would do the job.
  2. The intel general has more performance per core so that could increase productivity and either will run tri-monitors. As long as the card does support it like you say.

    For just office stuff (you may be running 4 programs simultaneously, but none of those load the CPU heavily), even a Pentium will do and is much cheaper than an i3.
  4. Whichever CPU is cheaper. Even a Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge generation Pentium CPU will do or one of AMD's APUs.

    As long as the nVidia card (or AMD) card has a DisplayPort, then you will be able to use it for 3 monitors. If it does not have DisplayPort, then you need another graphics card for that 3rd monitor.
