Which out of these 2 will preform better and last longer?

Hello,

i am planing to build a new computer because on my old one i cant play any of the new games that are out right now.

and i want want to know which of these 2 will last longer

i have 2 choices:

first is the intel i5 3450 with the ASRock B75M-GL

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.ro.asp?Model=B75M-GL&cat=Specifications

or the amd fx 8120 with ASRock 970 Pro3

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=970%20Pro3&cat=Specifications

both of these combos are about the same price in my country which is about 300 US $

either of these combos i will be using with a radeon 7850 gpu

and please dont tell me to go i5 2500k or 3570k because either of these ones with a decent z68/z77 mobo are about 450-500$ which is out of my price range :(

More about which preform longer
  1. The i5. No reason to buy a FX CPU right now anyway, with Piledriver right around the corner.
  2. Agreed. That i5 will beat even an overclocked FX in pretty much every application out there.
  3. The i5 will perform better and likely last you longer.

    PileDriver will probably be about 10% more powerful than AMD's current Phenom II / FX CPUs. That will make PileDriver about equal to the 1st generation Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs.

    PileDriver will need to be about 28% more powerful than Phenom II / FX to be equal to an Ivy Bridge CPU.

    First off, kudos on the avatar. Dave Lombardo taught me how to play drums. South of Heaven is still one of my alltime favorite albums.

    From the looks of it, Piledriver (Vishera) is going to be 15% faster than Bulldozer and close to 20% is a slight possibility. At that range, if they come out with some competitive pricing and not the $300 tag the 8150 released with, it would be a very viable alternative if the 3570K is still $230-240.
  5. Which puts it up against 1st generation core series of processors.

    Right. Whatever you say. :sarcastic:
  7. Get the 3450K though.
