    Any i5 is a better gaming cpu than any amd chip available, even if it is overclocked. The haswell will eat the amd cpu for 11'ses.

    for every expert who says the I5 one is better there is another expert says the FX one
    after a week of searching I'm totally confused :|
  10. well then it totally depends on you. Your decision,your money,your RIG. Shut your eyes & buy any of those ,they ain't gonna disappoint.
  11. Click on the link and look at the chart.

    This is tom's hardware official placings list.
    Dont listen to a bunch of kids telling you that an amd chip is equivalent in games, the truth is they can keep up in about one game.
  12. Notice there is nothing from amd in the top tier ,but even the slowest clocked i5 2300 from 3 years ago is in the top tier. A haswell 4440 is 20% more powerful than a 2300 so there is no way the AMD stuff can compete.

    Even if OVERCLOCKED ?
  14. The instructions per cycle is poor on an amd cpu, and they are already running fast. There isnt a lot of percentage left in the cpu's. But once you start down that road you are committed to aftermarket coolers and high end motherboards. You save bugger all, and still dont get the same gaming ability.

    if I got I5 4440 I will get High end Mobo too with z87 because I intend to do xfire in the Future
  16. Get a 4440 and an ASUS H87, that will crossfire.
  17. I think Z87 will SLI as well tho, if you realy like invidia cards.
    There new stuff coming sounds awesome.

    they told me that PCI-E x16 3.0/x4 2.0 will suck when xfiring
  19. Yeah, I suspect it wont perform amazingly. It would be ok for small cards ;#} Yes, get a Z87 , its what, another £20?
  20. I recently got an h87m-plus and an i5 4430, but I got the i5 off ebay for £99. I have no interest in xfire. One good card will do me, I am 45 years old !
