:sol:  :sol:  :sol:  Hi guys, Finally i made a choice to upgrade my rig, i am planing to buy the winner from these two processors in overall performance, I read in lot of reviews that amd a8-3850 processor is good in gaming but not satisfactory in pc apps like maya & 3ds max, in other hand the core i5-2500k is very good in two ways and costs a little bit on amd's apu, but i need over all performance in Maya, 3ds max, 3d rendering (1080p hd content) and gaming I am on overclocking too,tell me guys if any one used these processors please post your comments it will be more helpful if you provide your full rig specs, i am replacing my processor & motherboard with the winner in above two processors my old rig's specs are Intel dg41rq board with intel e7500 processor, 320gb sata hdd, 4gb ddr2 800mhz ram,full tower atx cabinet(haf x cooler master),750w psu.genuine win 7 x64 ultimate. :sol:  :sol:  :sol:

There is no contest. The i5-2500k will always win.

Intel's best (yet affordable) "Sandy Bridge" Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs can easily beat their AMD Phenom II counterpart CPUs. The Phenom II CPUs are more competitive with Intel's 2nd generation of Core 2 Dual and Core 2 Quad CPUs.

Llano based CPUs uses the slower and older Athlon II CPU core which, generally speaking, is a little weaker than Intel's 1st generation of Core 2 Dual and Core 2 Quad CPUs (circa 2006).

Perhaps AMD's upcoming Bulldozer core, the Zambezi family of CPUs, can compete with Intel's Sandy Bridge CPUs.

IF you do not plan on using an aftermarket GPU AND you will be gaming, the A8-3850 is a great choice.
It has an integrated GPU that is roughly equivalent to a lower mainstream/entry level discrete GPU.

In every other metric, the i5-2500k is a clear winner.
Its IPC performance is far ahead of any released AMD processor.
A stock i5-2500k can outperform AMDs flagship 6-core CPUs with ease in nearly every application.
It can also be overclocked extremely high and easily (aftermarket cooling recommended).
