    I really suggest getting this combo. The i5 is very good for anything you please. Whether it be gaming or word docs.. You could get an i3 if you wanted to save money. Look at the comparison here: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-4440-vs-Intel-Core-i3-4150
    Feel free to ask questions! :)

    I'm an intel advocate but maybe they would be better with an fx6 or fx 8

    I agree with going with an fx 8xxx. Here's what I would recommend:

  5. Why do you guys recommend going with the fx6300 or 8320/50? The 4440 is 47% faster in single threaded apps and is only beat by 4% in multi threaded apps.
  6. hi guys so in the end i had a plan lol
    i ordered an msi z97 g43 mobo and an intel pentium g3258 which i hope to oc to 4.8ghz with my coolermaster hyper 212
  7. Best answer
    You should be able to get to 4.8ghz safely with that cooler. The pentium is gonna be about as good as the 8320 when you overclock it.

    Not really though because just look at the different in cache size

    On your budget we asumed you wanted to save money. Also the fx 6300 8320/8350 are all easily overclockable thus being able to adapt to next- gen titles. Also for gaming multithreded activities you will get a better performance. In reality for single core apps the speed will be the same. Also I am not sure of the conversion rate but if you need a new mobo with this cpu you can't afford a mobo.
  10. The speed will not be the same for single threaded apps.......

    No it wont be the same but there are very few single threaded apps the only that really springs to mind is world of tanks.

    I was only saying that through the many applications out there world of tanks is the only one that sprung to mind that will only be using one core. If he wants it for word processing a celeron would do and he would most likely be aware of that.
