  1. You'll have more FPS with Intel, you'll pay less for AMD.
  2. i5 4670k = Four strong cores
    FX 8350 = Eight weak cores
  3. Best answer
    AMD FX-8350:
    + Cheap
    + Acceptable performance in most cases, & performing no different than the 4670K in some games usually in 3rd person action/adventure or most FPS.
    + 6+ cores in the event that next gen games are far more optimized for more weaker cores over fewer faster ones.
    + capable of High OC

    - Slower per core performance, performing as bad as an i3 in such situation.
    - Some games prefer faster dual cores over weaker octo-cores, evident with Starcraft II.
    - Requires a high OC (nearing 5ghz, i hear) to match an i5's performance. at stock. high OC = increased power consumption.
    - Frame time not as good (though still within acceptable range) against an i5 in some games.

    i5-4670K
    + faster per core performance
    + Better gaming performance in terms of frame rate and frame time, in most cases.
    + acceptable performance in games that demand more cores (i.e; Crysis 3).
    + integrated GPU in the event your discrete GPU craps out on you.

    - expensive.
    - Can't OC as high as AMD's, and runs hot when OCed.
    - if it matters, outside of gaming, bad performance/price in multi-core applications.
  4. Thanks!
  5. AMD:
    Cheap
    Okay cores, although they are great for bitcoin mining.
    Usually have lots of cores. Depending on which cpu you get.
    Run higher GHZ usually.
    Great on board graphics.

    Intel:
    Expensive
    Fewer Cores
    Super fast for gaming
    Run lower GHZ
    They are best for gaming.
    Graphics on the chip suck.
    Usually you have to get a Graphics Card.
    They are a lot faster.

    Personally I am an intel guy just out of preference.
