I need help deciding on a CPU for a 3D animation/game development box that I'll be making 15 of for a school's computer lab.
I know Intel's 2500k is a great CPU. But into looking at alternatives, the FX 8150 jumped up. I can get an overall cheaper rig if I base it on the 8150/AMD model, but I don't know if I'll also be significantly sacrificing performance as well.
So, is Intel's 2500K processor so much better than AMD's FX 8150 that it's worth spending $1500 more (~$100 x 15 computers) on an already tight budget?
