Which build would be better?
the intel one is more to the gaming side and the amd one is more blanced out.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming,Surf the web (flash games, hd youtube), Work (micrsoft office), movie editing (sony vegas 720p or under), photo editing.

NO OCing

resolution: 1680 x 1050

$1 difference in price

The i3 one. Much more powerful.

This post is troll bait if I were a Mod I would shut it down anyway I would pick the AMD build just because I am more just a gamer and FX performs great enough for me and it has more cores.


I am not trying to start anything, i just want a honest opionon(s) about which is better for me and the use of a the computer I am planning to build.

obsama, the 8120 and the 4100 act very diiferently, the 4100 is better in games and general use.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-a...

and the i3 beats the 4100 by a whole whopping 3.5 frames.

more general computing power and good in games. looks like the 4100 wins that.

both are good for gaming, only difference would be a few FPS which you can hardly notice once you start whooping ass in BF3.you would be raging more in games than you notice the FPS. let's not look at numbers and real world performance, you won't notice much difference unless your the kind that buys parts and build pc as a hobby even if they cost 5000$ and test them and pushes them at their limits then yes you will notice it but if not then you won't notice them.

just go grab any of the 2 whichever you can get your hands on but if you like numbers buy them both and see for your self.

but if your just going for budget gaming the apu whooped i3 2100 like a girl in a cabinet screaming for her mama. (not talking about having a dedicated GPU)

but if we compare both using the same dedicated gpu then even the i3 would surrender it's undergarments and hide somewhere compared to an apu (using the 6770 amd card on both system) well knowing that apu would run crossfire on a single card at under 400bucks, plays 30-47fps at 1080p at high settings or mixed medium and high settings (bf3/bf2 like games) but still performs better than i3 at built in graphics.

and no I'm no AMD fan, I'm a Intel and Nvidia and MSi Fan but looking at real world performance either of the 2 is great.

Not in gaming it doesn't i3 is hyped into oblivion mate and anandtec is a no go LOL. I should know I own 8120 and core i3 and FX owns it even the 2500K seems a bit slower.

Post some proof or it is a lie.

@Monolithic
I own a fx 8120 6100 4100 8150 an i5 2500k i3 2100 i7 2600k,

fx 8120 and 8150 beats the i3 2100 by a medium margin in gaming @stock

while the i5 2500k girl slap fx 8120 and 8150 by a medium size specially after you overclock them at 4.5Ghz.then it beats it by a larger margin

seeing as only a few points difference between i5 2500k and i7 2600k in gaming, I don't need to put it there on the list.

but if your talking about a8 3870K or a6 3670K with no gpu against an i3 2100 with no gpu, the i3 2100 lost in graphics wise at 1440x900 resolution compared to the a8 and a6. even if you put a gpu with them seeing as they would all be using the same gpu

sapphire hd 6770 on a8 and a6 and on i3, the amd section still wins, but once you start milking out a better cards like gtx560ti 6850/6870 7850 7870 7970 gtx680 or whatever card then still i3 2100 will win.

so overall what Monolithic wrote wasn't really a lie about the i3 part,

difference between then is so small just likes Jackstins beervers rod, you can hardly see it. (i3 2100 and 8120/8150) well that is looking at real world performance @ stock clock. but overclocking it to a 4.5Ghz then it's placed at the i5 2500k @ stock or around 3.3-3.8Ghz performance. but of course pushing the i5 2500k at 4.5Ghz or higher would bash the 9120 and 8150 (on those using 4 or lower c/th) but overall 8120 or the 8150 is not a fail cpu as gaming is not the only thing in the world, there are heavy stuff going around that uses more than 4 cores hence the 8120/8150 is a much cheaper variation than buying a whole x79 system lol

I highly doubt the best gaming CPU is beaten by an AMD lesser.

I agree with you, at real time scores and numbers i5 2500k is truly better performance/price wise, but with normal people won't notice a difference between the eitherway.

even 8120/8150 overclocked to 4.5GHz is on the same performance of stock 2500K 3.30Ghz-3,80Ghz speed, as a overclocked i5 2500k to 4.5Ghz = big difference between a 8120/8150

but I can assure you the a8 3870k/a6 3670k beats the i3 2100 in gaming IF they have 6770 as a gpu or even without using a GPU, fps wise on a 1440x900 resolution. If you think of it this way a i3 2100 with a single gpu setup vs a crossfire of 3870k/3670k, graphics wise/fps wise the apu would win. (only talking about bf2/bf3/skyrim/dirt 3 here, not including other performance besides gaming)

note: of course this doesn't apply if they are using single gpu only where the a8/a6 won't be able to make use of it's crossfire capabilities with it's on board graphics.

Well were only talking about gaming level here.

as far as heavy duty goes many might go with 8150/8120 since it does performs well over here and base on my experience too.

as most people should want to go there instead of buying the i7 3930k/3960X, but most people are buying the i7 2600k/2700k over the 8150/8120 over these since their usage doesn't make full use of the capabilities of the bulldozer, it's just that,

for me the bulldozer is a non gaming cpu, where it's capabilities are shown elsewhere but it does perform well on gaming for the price/performance ratio it's great.

I may be an Intel and Nvidia fan but that doesn't mean I don't use amd cards right now or always recommend intel to people.

note: lol I don't think there would be a smart person who would use a a8-3870K without making full use of it's crossfire (at this time and date) for gaming as it performs extremely well even at 1080p. unless they just want to upgrade their gpu with a much better one and doesn't have money to buy a new system.

i3 2100 vs 8120 or 8150 both using 8gb ram and everything else is similar except for the mobo.

on work basis, the 8120 or 8150 stomped the i3 2100 like walking on an ant.
speed wise and utilizing all the c/th it was never even close to the 8120/8150. @ stock.

8150 vs i5 2500k same stuff again, difference is mobo.on work the 8150 completes the heavy duty i did with it much faster

8150 vs i7 2600k (just for your note, the i7 2600k is at 130$ higher than the 8150 in my local store)

after utilizing all cores of 8150 with the i7 2600k it sticks close with the i7 2600k (it's what you get for the price you paid for it(

and I tested it over my i7 3960X, the 8150 disappeared like a ghost.

did these test last week when i got a customer making me do heavy duty and was testing which one could finish faster.

In the end after utilizing all the cores of 8150 and 3960x and overclocking 8150 to 4.5 (was doing it for a moment since room temp was not very good) vs an overclocked 3960X to 5.1Ghz, it was like comparing a fetus to a 1 year old baby. even thought the 8150 was there but i just can't see it performance wise, but well that's what you get for what you pay.

lets not stick out of topic.

between these 2 if your only want's is gaming then stick with intel, but if you have other things to do with it besides gaming then go with amd just that
