Though it seems according this non-biased benchmark that the FX 8150 doesn't outperform only the I5-3450 but also the 3570K. 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?

Kick out the FX. | Report abuse dravan May 30, 2012 4:52:57 PM Best answer selected by Dravan. | Report abuse 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.
