i am planning to buy a processor amd or intel please recommend amd or intel processors for 100-150(9-10k indian rupees) which is good for gaming my choice -amd fx 6300 8320 or 8350 /intel core i5 4430 {also y friend says that many games are optimised for intel pc so they will not run perfectly on amd cpus is he right }

Best solution

lets start with what your friend said. Games are not optimized for Intel or AMD CPU's. Intel has a better performing CPU so games seem to run better on Intel. It is not that the developers of games try to make them run better on Intel or AMD, it is the performance difference in CPU's that make it seem this way.

you can get an AMD 8320 around you budget and it be overclockable when you notice that the performance is lacking. Intel at your price range is very limited when the CPU's get older for overclocking because they lock the multiplier. OCing a CPU can gain you an extra year or two before needing to upgrade.

I suggest the AMD CPU because of your budget.

of the CPUs you list you can buy, the fx8320 is the best when overclocked

If you don't plan to overclock that intel is the best option.

Intel i5 destroys that AMD. I recommend i5.

AMD produces its equipment more geared to those on a budget. You can get the motherboard cheaper with way more features than you can an Intel board. I again say for a budget build get the AMD system. The CPU will run 8 threads and the ability to OC and out perform the options you gave.

I am not an AMD fanboy But for budget systems AMD has the parts and features you can not get with Intel. For brute raw computing performance Intel has the performance But you pay extra for the CPU and the motherboard to get the same features.

Yes even with the overclock I believe that the i5 would beat the 8320 in gaming. And remember to overclock you have to add the cost of cooling and power.

Fx 8320 will do it if you are on budged or intel if budged is unlimited. If you go with amd get 8320 and oc it. 8350 is Oc'ed 8320 at higher price tag. Micro Center has fx 8320 for $129 today.

not true. Depends if you're going off the THG cpu benching suite of Civ 5, Skyrim and Far Cry 3 or not... if you're just looking at those 3 titles, and that fx8320 isn't clocked over 4.4ghz, then when you say is true. However, once you clock a 6 core fx up to 4.8ghz the difference between it and a STOCK i5 is less then 5% on average across multiple gaming titles. here is a look at the proof; note, in this example we're looking at a fx6350 clocked to 4.5ghz... if you were to further clock it to 4.8ghz, the difference between it and the stock i5 would be indistinguishable (it would actually hold a slight lead)

Generally speaking an overclocked to 4.8ghz fx 8 core will regularly perform a bit faster then any stock i5...

That said, the overclockable i5s will leave that fx8 core in the dust... however the OP didn't present an overclockable i5 as a purchasing option. so what i said is 100% true. If he's planning on overclocking, that fx8320 is the best option on the table. if he is not, that i5 is.

The i5 4570 will last a lot longer, and will outperform a heavily overclocked FX8350 in most games.

OK what will happen when games, and they are starting to, take advantage of extra threads? the i5 4430 is limited to 3.0 GHz when more than one thread is active and only capable of running 4 threads at a time. The 8320 has the ability to run 8 threads @3.5 GHz. In any well threaded app the AMD will beat the Intel i5 4430.

COst added to OC the 8320 is minimal if you get a low cost decent CPU cooler like the hyper 212 evo or 212 plus. then you can easily hit the 4.0 to 4.2 mark on all cores and have all 8 threads running at those speeds.

Now add the fact the the rest of the components are cheaper so you add that money into getting better quality parts... It becomes hands down a win for the customer on a budget to go AMD 8 core right now.

But it is out of the price range by around $50 US bucks

that is not a purchasing option. And where do you get off claiming it will last longer? Do you know how fast intel cpus burn out? Especially since the move to Sandybridge?

Intels are notoriously fragile since sandybridge. Piledrivers are f-ing tanks. They aren't as fast but you can beat on them mercilessly without risking and serious harm. Hell, AMD owners will tell you they fear for their MOTHERBOARDS more then their cpu. And it's true. Piledrivers can take whatever abuse you throw at them... the trick is getting a motherboard that can take that abuse.

I think he means that they will maintain reasonable performance for a longer time (last longer without needing an upgrade), not actually working for a longer time.

that's debatable... i mean you can't put broadwell on a haswell lga1150 motherboard (even though it will use the 1150 socket), so it's not like there is any upgrade option on that haswell motherboard in 2 or 3 years.

Of course there doesn't look like there will be any upgrade option on am3+ either... so i'd say it's a moot point.
