Intel i3 3240 vs AMD FX-6300

I have got a question which is better? I would like to choose these two for gaming but which one? Which one would give more performance in league of legends far cry 3 and such games? I have a Nvidia geforce gtx 650 2gb which cpu will match better?

    I am a big AMD fan, but for gaming alone, get the i3. It is hyperthreaded and since most games only use one core, with a few exceptions,(Battlefield) it will perform better than the FX. In multi threaded applications like video editing however, the FX will do better.
  3. most games are optimized for 3-4 cores currently @tcb1005 so no it isnt in a lot of areas, but is in others.
  4. I'd take the i3, it could potentially perform better in many titles. http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/352/AMD_FX-Series_FX-6300_vs_Intel_Core_i3_i3-3240.html

    Far Cry 3 is an odd example, I believe it can utilise up to 6 cores. Even in this instance it achieves only 3 FPS over a comparable i3 with only 2 cores / 4 threads.



    I'd be surprised if the i3 didn't perform better in LoL. Most MMO's / MOBA's will perform better on intel processors as they often rely heavily on good single-thread performance.
