  1. go intel i5 for after effect
  2. the budget for what is $400? The entire computer?

    If those are teh 2 choices, I'd go with the intel
  3. intel
  4. well, i think the intel is stronger than the AMD, but i have an AMD FX 8-core and it's a monster (when compared to the $150 i paid), plus, ive been able to use cryengine's sandbox without issues and blender 3d as well. If you are on a tight budget get FX. also you should take in consideration what kind of socket for CPU you have
  5. yeah budget is $480 for i5 2400 ,Intel H67BL mobo , corsair 4gb ,500 gb HDD, DVD-R , cabinet.. that's all .
  6. better to go with i5 2500k...
  7. I am not planning to OC so not 2500k .
  8. so ... get i5 2400
