okay here are the questions will i be able to run games on ultra settings with either build second is it worth the extra $100 dollars to go intel? please no "i5 2500k fanboy" crap please just look at both build with an open mind and give me an honest estimate
More aboutcompare builds
The first(intel) build would likely to run better... Remember, Intel games better than AMD... IF your playing BF3, get the AMD(because Cheaper) one because BF3 is one of the few games that utilize all Cores, most games uses 4 Cores where Intel does better..
Note: Intel does the same(vs AMD FX 8100) in BF3 but in other games, Intel does better
It's obvious... the 6100 is under 8100 so it's obvious it's not worth getting the 6100 since 8100 performs better and the 8100 getting beaten in most games by 2500k...
lol if you think the extra premium you pay for the i5 2500k is worth it go i5 2500k but if you believe it's worth squat and you need it for your own daily expensive then go amd, just that because once you start shooting fags of bf3, you won't notice much difference.
same logic with this.
3 monitor setup you can also see the border when your just starting but after you get used to it, you won't notice much,
BTW, AMD's 8 Cores CPUs isn't REALLY 8 cores, it's 4 Cores with 8 Thread which ACT like 8 Cores but tends to do better than HTT but since the 4 cores lacks of performance, they added 8 threads and increased voltage to those CPU for performance... AMD tends to use more power/electricity for performance which isn't near intel's high end CPU at all but consume lots of power compare to intel...
