will this cpu last me for 2 to 3 years from now?

I am planning on a build for a computer sometime this november. And the intel cpus are just farrrrr to pricey, and I don't plan to upgrade for 2 - 3 years, I guess what I am asking is will the AMD FX 8350 CPU allow me to run games coming out in the next 2 to 3?

  1. Yep; that should be fine. But the Intel i5 isn't so much more expensive.

    i know how good the 8350 is at overclocking, but would you say a i5 is better in certain aspects over the 8350?
  3. Its better in almost all regards. If you have the budget I would recommend the i5 lineup.

    The i5 is better in every aspect in terms of gaming. Also, the Intel route has better upgrade path. There's no future upgrade in the FX line. That line is dead.

    do you know a specific type of i5 that you would recommend? the 3570k? i dont know much about the differences between types of i5's and i7's such as between the 3570k & the 4670k

    i5-4690K if you're overclocking. i5-4690 if you are not overclocking.
