  1. Not overclocking at all then go with the 3450 if it is for gaming build.
  2. Not overclocking at all then go with the 3450 if you think you might ever want to oc in future go with a i5 2500k
  3. hello there imrulbd, just go with an i5 3450.

    it will do any job you put at it, video encoding, editing, 3d rendering, extreme gaming, etc.

    go for i5 3450.

    Godspeed.
  4. Err...

    I'd say go for an AMD Phenom II X4.

    Much cheaper, and is only a lil' slower.
  5. if im to overclock than wat wud be a gud cooler. also why is the fx cpus getting bad reviews and being outperformed by even 2nd gen i5s in most games if they have 8 cores
  6. CPU Cooler:COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+

  7. why? because Intel have been dominating the mainstream CPU segment for being top in vid editing, etc,

    AMD is only famous because it offers customers budget CPU that can do gaming, vid editing, etc...it is powerful, but less powerful than Intel chips.

    so, simply =
    AMD : budget segment
    Intel : uhh..mainstream performer segment
