I would like an in-depth explanation on the best gaming processors

Hello, my name is Keo and I’d like to find the best processor I can. Well say that money isn’t a factor. I’ve read (on this forum) that some i5's beat i7's and that the fx-8150 can’t even compete with an i3. This will be solely a gaming rig for the tournaments I attend locally maybe the occasional fraps video, but you know.

  1. Hi,
    This article from Tom's should help you out

    Best Gaming CPUs For The Money: June 2012
  2. ^ That and a benchmark comparison to back it up. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-apu-benchmark,3120-10.html

    No in-depth explanation needed, really.

    And an extra comparison just to drive the point home. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/434?vs=288
  3. If money isn't a factor at all an i7 would help for rendering video and some games (few few) use the extra cache, but other than that the i5 is the best for gaming.
