all you had to do is type that into google, or look at a review of the 8120, any you would have your answer. If you have not heard, amd's FX cpu's are a flop, they are slower than their old Phonom II line of CPU's. The i5 2500k is a LOT faster, more power efficient and when ivy bridge cpu's come out you can drop one into your current socket 1555 motherboard for even more perfromance.

The i5 is the better option. AMD is scaling back it's CPU development.

I5 2500K is better than the FX 8150, so its clearly better than the 8120.
