Is AMD 8320 good for gaming?

See my budget is very tight..around 10k for processor ..and in my country any i5 is 13k+..i will be mostly gaming and watching 1080p movies..and surf net..no software works..will fx 8320 will make huge difference comparing to i5..as intel are more strong in single-threading...will my games or pc lag if i choose amd..also i will be pairing any of them to GTX 650 Ti boost 2GB
Im not fond of high resolution.gaming and all..will amd be ok?

  2. It is a very good cpu even if you are not going to overclock it . With that graphic card it would run absolutely fine.
  3. 8320 and i5 has same gaming performance so you are fine.
  4. Yes, I have one. It's absolutely great.

    Games mostly depend on the GPU ... i would say like 75 %

    so if u want better gaming simply go high end GPU like R9 290x or R9 280x if u can't afford r290x
  6. FX 8320 is an excellent CPU, one of the best options for gaming indeed, the thing for multi threading is one thing, games are getting multi threaded as well, which will, in my point of view, make this CPU edge with an i7 (third or fourth generation) not an i5, something that happened in crysis 3... you are going to be fine with either cpu, it is a personal choice really, I went with fx 8350 and added up to my gpu budget and I bought r9-290, my uncle bought i7 4770k+ r9-280x , and in every game I get some about 20-30 fps more than him (Tested Games bf3, bf4, crysis3, far cry3, hitman absoloution, medal of honor war fighter, call of duty black ops 2, crysis 2 dx11 patch and metro last night)

    Yeah, you made the right choice. No point getting a really overkill CPU when you could get a really good GPU :D

    Believe it or not Jook, I sometimes wish I had bought the fx 8320 instead of 8350, I mean hell that's more than enough, I could have treated myself to a gourmet dinner with the 50$ difference, but yeah thanks bro, I am happy, he can't brag about his overkill cpu anymore ;)
