According to you which one between the FX 8150 and the I5 3450 is better for gaming and why? Then also, if someone is on budget is the FX 8150 a good 2nd choice or would even an older I5 2400 or 2500K still be better?

Get the answer smarvasti August 23, 2012 12:12:40 AM For best price use the FX-8150. It will beat the i5-3450 in most games and is highly overclockable and unlockable. The 2500k is best value but it is now hard to find. The fx-8150 has 4 FP cores at higher performance than regular intels and 8 integer cores. Multithreaded games and havok with the right patch will take advantage.
