AMD 1090t X6 Black edition bundle or i5 2500k


i am being offered a
AMD 1090t black edition with a Asus Crosshair formula IV mobo for less price than a intel i5 2500k
should i buy it? or spend loads of cash for i5 + supporting motherboard ( am thinking of P8z68-deluxe

my purpose upgradeing is purely GAMES i have a 19 inch lcd so i wont be going beyond 1280X 1024 resolution anytime soon.

my current system is

Intel Core 2 duo E7200 oced to 3.6ghz
4gb Crossair dominator II 800mhz
Asus P5ql-pro Motherboard
his HD6850 1gb
xigmatic 702 psu
coolermaster haf922 case with total of 4 fans installed
and Coolermaster v6gt cooler
1.5 tera segate baracuda

ill make it simple
in my country (pakistan)
i can get the 1090t with formula IV for like 16000 rupees whereas the i5 2500k and the p8 at a combined price of 45000
so i am saving alot of money if i go for AMD.

so any suggestions??

  1. If you are on a tight budget then Thuban is OK. Otherwise the if you dont have any budget constraints then the i5 2500k is a no-brainer.
  2. With that significant a price difference I'd get the AMD too.
  3. BTW, which country? Rupees is followed in more than one country?
  4. He mentioned Pakistan in the OP.
  5. Oh... missed that! That price difference is a bit too huge dont you think?
  6. The 2500 is the better chip, but that's a huge price difference. I'd get the AMD setup also.
  7. yeah i was thinking the same, cuz i can get both mobo and the processor in less than wot it will cost me to just get the i5 2500k
  8. I would go with the AMD 1090T.

    Just be aware that at best games barely use 4 cores. If you can drop down to a quad core Phenom II X4 CPU, then you may be able to save some money.
