  1. If you can't wait, get the FX. If you want to wait, wait for benchmarks to be run on the next-gen processors to see which is a better deal.
  2. Why not go for something like a I7-4770k?
  3. If you go the Intel route, get the 15 4670K. It is $100 cheaper and has almost equal performance in games because the i7 has hyperthreading, which the i5 lacks, which most games don't use in the first place.
  4. Whatever you do, stay away from the FX 9590. We're not sure how well the A10 7850 will perform, but it's only supposed to be $150ish so they're not exactly going to be on equal footing. Expect the A10 to have better single core performance anyway.

    I would wait for how the A10 7850K performs. Also, like CTurbo said, stay away from the 9590. You will get more value out the 8350, and then the 8320.

    One thing that sucks about APUs is that the GPU is being bottlenecked by the memory. I would like Sideport memory return.
  6. Yep. DDR4 RAM is going to do wonders for igpus.

    well listen, grab an fx 8320 for 150$ and a decent cooler for some about 40$ and overclock your fx 8320 to 4.5 ghz which will change it to fx 9370 and there it is REALLY competitive with the i7-4770... the A10 is great, but it will take some time to mature and become threaded maybe until early 2015, so It would not beat the FX line up in the first place, specially in well threaded programs with games like http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=4546&game=Watch%20Dogs or engines like http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/132533/sponsored_feature_resident_evil_5_.php?print=1 or http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/unreal-engine-4-needs-lots-of-processors which are heavily threaded, I wouldn't go for the 4 core A10 or i5-4670k to be honest, you are going to need something like the i7 or the FX 83--
    my recommendation stays in tact if you want to overclock, if you don't want to overclock at all, go with fx 9590
  8. Thanks everyone, guess im going with the 8320
  9. Good choice.
  10. And one last thing which mobo should i buy tha asus sabertooth r2.0 with PCIe 3.0 or the Crosshair V-formula?

  12. If you have some extra money, get the Crosshair (simply because its awesome and part of the ROG boards), but the Sabertooth is pretty much the same board with everything you'll need for a lesser price.
  13. Ok thanks :)
