Which one would be better? I'm slightly leaning towards the fx 9370. it's single core performance is just a little less than the i7 4770k, but it is 8 core.

according to http://cpuboss.com/ it's performance is equal to i7 4770k and has a lower price (80$ less). so which one would be better? i'm also getting 2x 780ti in sli. i'll be using this rig for gaming and 3d modelling (3ds max).

Cores and speed are only relevant if your comparing under the same architecture. I personally would go with the i7 just from hearing of others experiences but I haven't seen too many with a 9370.

Look at this one http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-4770K-vs-AMD-FX-9... although cpuboss isn't usually where I go to look at performance benches.

The i7 will have superior single core performance, and once you overclock it it will be even better. Cosnidering the 9370 runs at 4.4 Ghz at stock it will produce a LOT of heat so I'm not sure you will get much more juice out of it. If I were you I'd go for the 4770k, since you're getting 780 sli's and all this needs to be a truly top spec rig.

The intel's have much better per core performance than AMD as demonstrated by single-threaded apps and games. You probably wouldn't see much difference when 3d modelling anyway but the 4770k outperforms most chips out there. Not to mention that the 4770k has 8 threads anyway so it will have equal or better performance than the FX.

Personally, I don't like sites like CPUBoss. They use lots of synthetic tests that I just don't like, but each to their own.

All in all, since you're getting 2 780 ti's you need to go really high end, I'd say the 4770k. It will run cooler at a lower clock speed and you always have the potential to overclock. One of the best chips out there. I'm not saying that the 9370 is bad (it is very good), just from my own experience I'd say the i7 would be better just for that per core performance if nothing else, even though the apps you're using will be multi-threaded. I guess it's up to you - both will game extremely well (especially with those GPUs) and work very well in multi-threaded apps. I just think the i7 has the edge (temps, lower clock speed, and better per core performance). Reiterated myself a lot there lol.

The i7 is superior in ever way! The 9370 is crap. I would even get the 8350 over it.

I agree with JOOK-D for anybody else that reads this thread. I'm not going to be like 9370 and bad mouth without any support either. The only exception is if you have the proper cooling (ideally, water based) and plan to overclock; in such case this chip would supersede the 4770k. Should you overclock both, the 4770k loses, and you save money, so long as again, you have the proper cooling. Otherwise, the heat will kill your chip in the long run, and you won't really be saving money anymore.

Stuff intel get the AMD product, just my two cents. If you'd give your money to a company that came out with the concept of the cpu ID and constantly engages in unfair marketing practices to try to drive AMD out of business that's your business but I will never willingly buy Intel anything if there's a way to avoid it. I've been loyal AMD since AMD starting making processors and you never heard of AMD putting out a CPU with a lookup table with an error in it like you heard happened with Intel in the distant past.
