Thanks for your quick reply. Can you tell me INTEL or AMD is better? AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor is costing same as Intel 3.1 GHz LGA1155 Core i3-2100 Processor. Which is better?
The gaming tests show the results are too close to call between these two . If you were gaming you wouldnt be able to tell which one was in a computer by just using it .
In multimedia and office applications the FX is the better processor , because it can run 4 real threads [ the i3 has two real threads and two virtual ""hyper" threads ] , and that will mean when you are multitasking its less likely to get slowed down . Again there wont be much in it .
At full speed the FX uses a little more power , but unless you are running at 100% 24/7 its not going to make any difference you will notice .
IMO buy on price , and that means the FX since the mb's are also better featured . Make sure you use an AM3+ board with either a 970 or 990 series chipset . These start at about $85
