Hey guys I'm trying to find the fastest budget parts for a gaming rig and I've run into a dilemma, both cores are fast but one is faster and cheaper but the more expensive CPU I hear works better. Which do I choose?

AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core $199.99
Passmark: 9,056

Intel I5-3570k Quad-Core $229.99
Passmark: 7,162

Also I don't know what ATX motherboard to choose.

If you want the CPU mainly for gaming then i ll recommend you to go with the FX 8350.. It also has 4 physical core ( 2 virtual cores each ) and is great for gaming.. Also its price-performance ratio is way better than the i5's .. Also the latest games recommend AMD ( Like BF4 )..
