Hello, I am going to buy a new computer and I have got it all down to two computers that are best for the price http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=20... Reviews and http://www.walmart.com/ip/ZT-Affinity-850-Desktop-PC-wi...

the only differences is one has 12gb ddr3 ram and a ATI Radeon HD6570 graphics card and AMD FX-6100 Processor

the other has 16gb ddr3 ram and a i5-3450 with Intel HD Graphics 2500 built in

I am going to use it for mainly 3d modeling, tetureing, rendering, and game making in a few different engines, and some gaming.

if i get the second one i will later upgrade the graphics card.

so basically i want to know what CPU is better.

and i know im buying from walmart but its the best deal i could find.

In almost every scenario, the computer with the i5 will be much faster. Especially for gaming. However if you plan on gaming, you WILL need to pick up a better graphics card

providing that there is decent enough power supply so that you can upgrade the gpu on the intel then actually they aren't bad offers.

The AMD FX 6100, in my experience has low per core performance and low overall performance, so I would go with the Intel. It can't even handle games with low spec requirements such as minecraft on low settings. If you need more power you could upgrade to the 3570K which is the 2500K of the 3rd Gen :)
