lol, I know, hey loon, have you ever heard my impression of a broken record? Have you ever heard my impression of a broken reco. have you ever heard my have you ever heard my impression have you everheard my impression of a broken record?
waiting for the trolls.
you're answer is spot on, even though i am an i3 2120 fan boy.
christ i hate being broke, i really want to get a gtx 570 or 7870 to see if it will put a hurting on this thing. the 550ti barely makes it grunt past 50% in any game with any settings.
but i like things such as food, clothing and shelter to scrap up $250+ for another gpu
which 1 should i get?
i3 2120 vs overclocked fx 4170
What do you plan on using your desktop for? How much are each of the processors in your area?
The i3-2120 is supposedly better when it comes to gaming (overall), but the FX-4170 is definitely a faster processor when you compare the processors by numbers alone. In fact, I don't think there's a processor that currently exists that has a base clock speed of over 4GHz like the FX-4170 has.
Gosh, why did the FX series processors have to be so bad?!?! It hurts my brain knowing that a measly dual-core i3 can beat most of the FX series processors in just about every category.
