I want to buy a new processor and my budget range is 120-130$.First i thought of buying a AMD FX-6100 but not sure whether it is a good processor or not.Please suggest me a good Processor
1 - Im not a heavy gamer.But all the games should run smoothly at Meduim resolution.Its Enough.
2 - .Im a heavy downloader and sometimes keep my PC on continuously for 3-4 days.
3 - Im an encoder.So i encode lots and lots of movies.
4 - Already have a graphic card so problem about in built graphics.
5 - I will never do crossfiring and overclocking.
If your using it more for video encoding, rendering, and things like that AMD seems to be better. Intel is a gamers chip and is way better in terms of gaming. When I had a Phenom II X4 965 BE it did render video 30-45 seconds faster. But I wouldnt get a FX processer or at least any of the bulldozer series processors. If your looking at AMD then go for the new pile driver CPU's which are FX but better than their predecessors. Such as the 6300 or 4300.
For encoding i3 is useless since its a dual core. Gaming ti would be well but since your doing encoding i agree with abCasPeRR stick with piledriver and youll probably play games at ultra if you get a good GPU with the cpu
Here is the benchmarks for the 6300 compared to the i3. The bulldozer series CPU's were not what they should have been and therefore wouldn't be worth the money to buy it over the 6300 when there the same price.
