Okay so I bought myself an i5-2400. Came out to be around $130 tax included.
The thing is now I'm torn between returning using the i5 or returning it and going AMD. I'm looking to get another 8GB of DDR3 ram and motherboard for the i5. Which will put me well over $200 for the upgrade.
Microcenter has several AMD bundles that fits my budget better. They have the FX 6100, FX 4100, Phenom II X6 1045, and Phenom II X4 965. So which AMD CPU is best for gaming?
I know i5 is better but really is not an option for me since the total cost is too high. I'm leaning toward the 965 so I can save the money for a future GPU upgrade.
