I'm on a doubt. I don't know if go for a build with an FX 8350 and an 128GB SSD or go for one with an i7 3770k. Here are the two configurations. BTW I'm spanish :P

  1. get the 8350 and the SSD because the next gen games are going to be using more cores and the 8350 would be perfect
  2. If it is for gaming I would do an Intel build with an I5 which allows for SSD or go with the FX build. The I7 only if editing rendering is part of the plan.

    That's what I though buying it. But an i7 is an i7... I don't really know what to do :??:

    This rig will be for gaming and editing and rendering videos.
  5. Go for the I7 then you can always add a SSD later.

    But what I thought is to put the OS in the SSD.
  7. That is what I would do but the OS can be reinstalled later if you get an SSD later.

    But I have to delete all the information.
  9. No you do not. Install OS on a 100GB partition on the HDD then you can clone that partition to the SSD when you get it, then format the partition and join it the main volume.

    Nice idea! :D

    But the 8 cores will be better in the future?
  11. Currently the I7 capable of handling 8 threads because of HT is faster using most current programs http://anandtech.com/bench/product/697?vs=551

    Okey, but I still think that the FX 8350 worths it. I feel like I'm wasting money on an i7 3770k. That's my opinion.
  13. For the price savings it is worth it but not performance.
