Dandalf March 26, 2012 1:51:32 AM I agree with dish_moose and Chesteracorgi - and I'm an AMD fan. AMD are in a rut right now with their products. loneninja a c 83 à CPUs a b À AMD March 26, 2012 1:53:40 AM FX is a joke for gaming, Intel is better at every price point right now in games. I can only recommend AMD for certain work loads in certain price ranges, but not for gaming. cmi86 a c 78 à CPUs a b 4 Gaming March 26, 2012 1:55:51 AM The FX line is a joke so I'll cite the pheoms. Equally priced phenom vs equally priced intel = intel for gaming and the AMD for basically everything else. loneninja a c 83 à CPUs a b À AMD March 26, 2012 2:03:23 AM I'd recommend looking at this article. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-apu-benchmark,3120-10.html amuffin a c 186 à CPUs a b 4 Gaming a b À AMD a b å Intel March 26, 2012 3:05:36 AM ^+1 even the pentiums outperform the fx-8120/50. Anonymous_26 a b à CPUs March 26, 2012 3:46:55 AM For gaming I would go with Intel they have the fastest CPU's right now. With Phenom II and Athelon II being cancled all we're really left with is the Bulldozer and giving it's performance I wouldn't bother with it. jsc a c 172 à CPUs a b å Intel March 26, 2012 5:40:22 AM Pretty much agree.
