hey bros this is my first post here...and my question is which cpu is better for heavy gaming...current and next gen games..a lot of people said both are pretty much the same and u can't tell the difference.the i5 is expensive and the fx 8320 is a lot cheaper but I want a future proof... and also tell me is this build good for gaming
Specs:
Cpu:amd fx 8320 or intel i5 4670k
Gpu:radeon r9 270(the non X version)
Ram:8 gb 2×4
Hdd:1tb baraccuda
Motherboard:gigabyte 78lmt (Idk what mono for the intel)



I'm not planning to OC
I'm putting the important parts only
I'm gonna play bf4, titanfall, cod ghosts and advanced warfare, crisis3,the division, etc...maxed out 1080p with average 30-60+ fps..or at least med-high...and will last 2-5 years .
ask any think u want :) 


Thank you in advance and have a nice day :)

If you're not planning on overclocking , maybe consider getting an i5 4670 non-k series chip or even a i5 4440 or something and pair it with an H87 or H97 chipset.

The 8320 is a chip that would probably need a bit of an overclock to play some games at 50-60fps.

For the motherboard if you decide to go with the AMD chip, you might want to consider maybe a 990FX chipset, to overclock. Again, the AMD will do better with overclocks.

i5.

Calnin outlined it nicely above. It would cost you more than it's worth to get an AM3+ motherboard capable of overclocking and a good CPU cooler, when you could get an i5 that outperforms it at stock settings.

I'd imagine you'd get playable frames with either one. I can't tell you the exact frames you'd get.

With all those titles, I'd imagine that crysis 3 be the only giving a huge problem with frames.

Just saying: Playable frames = 30fps+ to me so, this is just my rough estimation. I could be completely wrong regarding this.

Either one would play the games decently, but I wouldn't expect to play a game maxed out with a r9 270 with those titles.

Out of all those titles, the one closest to running near 60fps would probably be BF4 because of mantle support.

In regards to CPU, again, the fx8320 would do better than the i5 if it were to be overclocked. But at stock, the i5 would most likely be stronger.

The 8320 would run them smoothly, yes. Overclocking it would make it run better than the i5 build.
