basically what my thread says.

what AMD cpu/Motherboard setup is about equal to i5 2500k+ASRock z68 extreme3?

What kind of performance are you looking for?

In most things (especially super high-end gaming) the i5-2500k is going to be far superior to anything currently offered by AMD.

If your uses can utilize 8 cores fully then AMD has great deals on octo-core CPUs.

Basically there no AMD CPU can equal an Intel Core i5-2500k.

See below link that compares the quad core i5-2500k to the quad core Phenom II x4 980 BE
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=362

The i5-2500k beats the PII X4 980 BE in every single benchmark except SYSMark 2007 - Video Creation benchmark. The PII X4 got scored 252, the i5-2500k scored a "measly" 251. However, I tend to ignore synthetic benchmarks since they do not necessarily release real life performance.

See below link that compares the i5-2500k to the 6 core Phenom II x6 1100T
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=203

The Phenom II x6 beats the i5-2500k in only one benchmark and that's the 2nd video encoding pass using the x.264 codec (presumably using Handbrake). Some benchmark scores are close, but many are not.

Below is the i5-2500k vs. the 8 core FX-8150
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=434

The FX-8150 also performs better in the 2nd video encoding pass using the x.264 codec. But it also does a bit better with most of the 3DMax benchmarks. It also does very well with POV-Ray 3D rendering benchmarks and edges out the i5-2500 in the Cinebench test as well. If you compress a lot of files using 7-Zip, then the FX does better there too. The 4 extra cores can come in handy in certain applications. There are a few other benchmarks where the FX-8150 does a bit better than the i5-2500k that I did not mention.

The FX-8150 does do very well against Intel's older Core 2 Quad Q9650 though. Due to the fact that the Q9650 was released about 3.5 years ago, there are no game benchmarks.

That's pretty good, considering the Q9650 is an older processor. Guess my dad will be holding out until haswell/skylake :wahoo:

Nothing from AMD is going to do that.

If it must be AMD, at this point your best bet is probably to go with a Phenom II x4 (or Phenom II x6) and overclock it as far as it will go. If you are interested in a cheap as possible system only. There is really not a good AMD processor to build a performance system around today, because they really dropped the ball with Zambezi and it is not competitive for the price.

Wait if you already had an i5 then why would you ask for an amd cpu! :lol:

I also live in the ROK. Try danawa.com. Their prices for CPU's are relatively competitive if you factor in shipping cost and currency rates.

Amd FX-8150 in several benchmarks, if OC'd (it seems to scale a little bit better).
The 8150 is more expensive though, and the 2500k will beat it more often than not it seems.

Give http://amdfx.blogspot.com/ a read, he's got benches for the things that the FX is better at.

Keep in mind that the FX is a powerhog, it uses a lot more power than the 2500k

yes i've been making my setups through danawa, but only some stuff i'll be purchasing through it. rest i'm buying off used market.
