Hey, all, I'm trying to decide between 2 pre-made rigs, and am having trouble comparing.
Which combination will be better for gaming, and last me longer before I have to upgrade when newer games come out like Battlefield 4?:

i5-4430 with GTX 650 Ti
FX-8120 with GTX 650

I appreciate any feedback/advice, thanks!

Definately the i5-4430 with gtx 650 ti, though i would spend few bucks more and get atleast 650 ti boost, or even 660.

Best solution

you can look for yourself that i5 is better thanfx 8120 and 650 ti is better than 650 non ti, so the i5-4430 with 650 ti domintaes, but as i said you should grab a better gpu :)

go with i5 and 650ti. 8120 and 650 are quite slow compared to i5 and 650ti.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I was just torn with the comparable speed, but the 8120 having more cores/cache.
Just didn't know if a CPU like that would make the 650 run more efficiently than a i5 with the Ti; I obviously don't know much.
I was also thinking about how the i5 will have a board that I can use to upgrade to, let's say an i7 by simply changing out the CPU, but the FX-8120 and higher AMD chips I can overclock, if I ever get into that sort of thing, down the line.
