There seems to be a lot of hate on the FX 8 core CPU... I don't understand a whole lot about CPU/MOBO configurations, but I would've thought that an AMD 8 core processor at 3.1GHz would be better than an Intel I5 4 core @ 3.1GHz? Could somebody please explain what I'm missing here? lol
And since a lot of of people don't seem to like the FX series.. Could you also maybe recommend a better CPU/MOBO configuration for gaming around $250 - $300 Canadian?
