I am currently trying to pick the components to create a gaming machine.
I play games such as Counter Strike, Farcry 3 and DayZ. DayZ is very cpu intensive and i was wondering which build will be more suited for my needs.
FX-8350 vs I5 3470 i would get the fx but if it was the 3570k then intel is better the fx 8350 is a powerful cpu its just that most games are un optimized and don't take advantage of the extra cores so it would be better if u went intel on this one
As trane20 says, most games are optimized for Intel processors (Less, but more powerful cores). With the new Mantle API from AMD, the supported titles (Fx. all new Frostbyte 3 games) will get at slight boost, if you use AMD hardware though.
