so im planning on upgrading my cpu and i was looking at 2 different one's at the same price range the two i was looking at are the AMD Phenom II x6 1055t and the Intel i5 750 they are both around 200, know the question i have is which will perform better with what i got right now. considering i have to buy a new mobo with the intel. Links are posted below to what i have and want so please help me out and give me some detail on whats better for todays games and programs.
I5 is gonna be better for games, but Phenom II X6 is gonna be better for programs(multithreaded programs or mutliple programs at once). Personally I would grab a Phenom II X6, especially since you already have a compatible motherboard.
