Final decision fx-8350 vs i5-4570

Mainstream question i know, but i cant decide between them.
I have read many topics in the forum, but still i havent decided.
Will 8350 become better option when games start to use 8 cores? Or will 4570 still outperform 8350?.
In addition, i need a cheap mobo.
Thank you again.

    When game start getting optimized for multi-core usage, 8350 will be better than 4570.
    Otherwise currently 4570 is better choice for gaming, since its better performance per single core.

    By the time you actually need an 8 core CPU, the FX will be more behind than it already is. Go with the i5.

    exactly.
  4. So 8350 will be worse even when games use 8 cores?
    4570 could deal with 8 core games?
    Also, will you suggest me a cheap mobo for the intel please?
    Thank you.
  5. I would recommend this board for Broadwell support next year.

  6. That h97 supports multiple gpu?
  7. Multiple GPU board will cost more. You would need this at minimum.

  8. GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-SLI LGA 1150 Intel Z97 $130 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128714

    this one comes with a free gaming mouse^ and if you ever want to get a K model and like 2133mhz ram you can overclock well on it.
  9. Whats wrong with b85 chipset?
  10. nothing really just, a z97 would give you all the latest cpu support and even the Xeon business class would be best matched with its stunning architecture.
  11. Nothing wrong with it, no Broadwell support, no raid support, and no dual gpu support.
  12. And what is the "special feature" of chipset 85.
    I understand tha 81 is the basic and cheaper.
    87 has more features and more expensive.
    97 is the new chipset with broadwell support.
    But i dont understand what the 85 chipset has.
  13. If you want to go budget gaming performance i would recommend the 8350 on a 990 mobo that has Crossfire support listed at the manufacturers website.

    AMD is losing in power efficiency but multi-core performance is being utilized better in applications and gaming as every month goes by.
  14. B85 is a business class chipset. It can support more ram than H81. Typically all B85 boards have a usb 3.0 header. Other than that, I cannot think of anything that makes it better than H81.
  15. Ok thats all i think.
    It depends on my savings i guess.
    I thin ill go for the i5 because everybody recommend it.
    Thank you everyone.
