Hey guys I'm really confused building up a new pc mostly between AMD and Intel 2 days ago I end up chosing the i5 4570 now I think about the 8350 fx and how future proof is it. been reading a lot and now thinking more about getting the fx 6300 and add SSD to the build with the money . as for GPU I picked the GTX 760 EVGA or Giga also not sure about a Motherboard for the build I think about 1 from those 4 what do you think ?
ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer -
Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 -
Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3 -
ASRock Z87 Extreme4

To be honest, I'd go for the one with the biggest knowledgebase. Go to http://www.newegg.com/ and look up the boards. Read the reviews, and see which one has the highest rating. Also, from what I've heard (researching those boards myself), ASRock is good, but DO NOT get the Z87 Extreme4. I've heard bad things about that board...

Personally, I'd go for the G1.Sniper or the Fatal1ty Z87 Killer.

Hope it helped!

With the CPU that you choose which is a great one, you do not need a Z87 MOBO, a H87 MOBO will work just as good at a better price since you will not be over-clocking (OC). Any MOBO from a good brand will work for you. As for changing up to a AMD CPU that is up to you, yes they are great CPU for the price and work really good. What you need to figure out is what best fits into your budget. If the PC is for gaming then you want the best GPU you can afford and work the rest of the stuff into your budget. It all starts with a budget.

AMD - Better for gaming system
Intel - Better for both gaming and Business...but kinda business is more.

If I am look for gaming, I'd go with AMD.

If I am look for both business (CAD, 3ds Studio, Adobe etc..) and gaming, go with Intel.

SSD as primary for faster performance on windows 7/8, Hard drive as secondary is good for storage and programs.

ASRock Fatal1ty and Gigabytes both are good. hard to decision...

I'd pick Gigabtyes Sniper, I like their feature. :-)

I assume it is depend on your budget plan for new PC.

AMD for gaming is actually not the best. It is not supported in some games, like Starcraft 2, which tries to eat your cpu while you are sleeping. It eats you too, but that is while you're gaming. Especially in those games with swamps...

Personally, I'd go for an ASUS, such as a Sabertooth Z87. But out of the mobos, see if the bad reviews are something that would annoy you. For example, I only have 4 of the 8 or 9 screws in my mobo, because my case is stupid...

Well..

AMD 8350 have large L3 cache (8MB) more than Intel I5 4570...But AMD's AM3+ motherboard only have PCI Express 2.0 support awhile Intel's motherboard is support most current PCI Express 3.0

If PCI express 2.0 is good enough for you, then You can grab 8350. That is up to you. I am netural for Intel and AMD.

I have Intel i5 for iMac with tradition hard drive (1TB) also, AMD A10 7850K with SSD for PC. I can see AMD + SSD run much 4 time faster than Intel with normal 1Tb Hard drive... I guess SSD is too obvious for speedy! Doesn't matter for either intel and AMD.

Most important is AMD 8350 have large cache L3 8MB more. I think it is best money to buy.

Good luck.
