Hey guys,

The title says it all. What should I get the FX 8320 vs I3 4340, I know the I3 has only 2 cores but, 4 threads and the FX 8320 has cores and 8 Threads. However some benchmarks show that the I3 nearly beats out the 8320 so what do you think. Also, I'm on a budget and plan to pair up one of these CPU's with a Sapphire R9 270X. The I3 is $150, however the 8320 is $160. What do you guys think. Please Respond ASAP.

fx8320 is better than intel core i3 4340. 4340 is overpriced.

what are you going to be using your pc for? amd am3+ platform don't have many uatx motherboards, mostly atx motherboards. all the am3+ microatx, fx supporting motherboards i found on newegg are based on older 760G chipset not officially supported by amd. moreover, they may not support all fx cpus.
almost all atx am3+ motherboards with 970, 990fx chipset don't have this problem.
