Hey guys,

I have a question, i'm wondering what CPU to choose the AMD A8-3870K or the Core i3 2125? I play a lot if high end games but i don't have a huge budget. Here is the build i am thinking, please let me know what CPU will give the most performance.

ASUS P8Z68-V LE (Or simular AMD Chipset motherboard)
PNY XLR8 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Diablotek PHD Series - 2nd Generation PHD650 650W
EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 (X2 in SLI)
APEVIA X-JUPITER S-Type X

I'm just stuck on what chip to use, Also if you could recommend if any 2 better Nvidia cards to use for around the same price.

Thanks

Why would you even consider the a8 if your not going to use the built in 6570? its cpu performance is worse than an athlon II of the same speed.

For $40 more you can grab the i5-2400 on newegg.

buy a g850 and a 6870 to maximize your performance on a budget.
