I'm currently looking at cpu options for building a desktop computer for gaming. I was originally thinking of the i5 2500k (and will still purchase it if needed), but was told that the 8120 would also be a viable option, and save me a little bit of money I can use to justify a gtx 570. I already know my other parts, and in the end, I want to be able to crossfire two 570s and use them to their full abilities. I just want to know if the 8120 will be able to do that, or if my money will be better spent on the 2500k.
Edit: Any other recommendations would be nice, gaming is the most demanding thing I will EVER use this pc for. I just want a second opinion from experience, I know how to google charts and benchmarks already Though any help you are willing to give is welcome.
I use to like AMD and would usually take a Phenom II over some of the older Intel processors but the Athelon II, Phenom II and now Bulldozer really can't compete with Sandy Bridges. People say AMD is good for a cheap build but I could build a computer around an I3 with a Z68 motherboard and minimum parts and still have a great computer. It would probably be better then an AMD Bulldozer in most programs (non heavily threaded programs).
