  1. better stick with intel sight i would go with i5 2500k which is good for gaming but amd promise tomorrow so phenom x4 970 is best one for gaming yet
  2. As i know,the "k" version can be overclock but im not doing it.so if i buy the 2400,is there any difference in perfomance between the 2500k?

    Maybe ill think about amd liano and i5.for i5 ill stay with 2400.and liano a10 is better than fx8120?
  4. monu_08 I think you have your facts mixed up. The AMD APU's only win without a discreet graphics card installed in the system. Otherwise the I5 2500K beats anything on the AMD side, which I find sad because I have been with AMD for like 5 years now and only recently bought a Phenom II 965 to upgrade from my Athlon x2 6000+.
    Which leads me to my suggestion of the Phenom II 965 with a good cooler. It can beat the 2400 when Overclocked to about 4-4.2Ghz which is pretty decent when comparing the prices of the two.
