I am having a problem of which processor that I will choose, AMD or Intel. Someone please help me with this. I used to play a lot of games (like battlefield, NFS, Crysis, etc. ), do multi-tasking and autocad.

NOTE: I do not OC.

Here's my build

CPU: _________________

For graphics card, i'd go with amd now. The prices have dropped a lot. Get a r9 280 or r9 280x. If you're keen on nvidia get a gtx 760 or gtx 770. For CPU either the AMD 8 core 8350 or i5 4690k.

I like what you've suggested on GPU's but here in the Philippines it take years to wait before prices drop.

And now the only problem is that CPU, as I said earlier I am not gonna OC, so why i5 4690k?

Hi - Not for the gaming aspect, but the multi-tasking & particularly autocad would benefit from the
i7 CPU's. I suggest the 17 - 4770 or 4790 (only $10 more). The 4770 can be gad for a little less than $300
and the 4790 for a little more;

If you live close to a micro center the 4790 is $250, in store only.

Then insure you get a motherboard for that CPU socket (LGA 1150)

such as:

Oooops - just saw you are in the Phillipines, the recommendations are still good,
just the pricing/availability issue. Yes, I do not recommend a "k" processor for your
needs. The mobo's I listed support OC which you don't need, but come with the territory.
All of them will also support Intel's next gen (gen 5) CPU's.

For GPU, it depends on how serious you will be with gaming. For the multi tasking/autocad, the CPU
is more important.
But, if you want to enjoy what gaming you will be doing, invest in the best GPU you can afford after
allowing for the CPU/MOBO.

Good choices GTX 760, 770, R9 270x, 280, 280x.
