(New Build) Fx 8320 or i5 3570 for my PSU? Tags: CPUs Last response: July 12, 2013 6:01 PM in CPUs Share anasahmad17 November 28, 2012 5:00:39 PM Hello guys, I am upgrading my system which is a 2006 build. Present specs: Core 2 Duo @2.2ghz Ram 2gb DDR2 @667mhz Mobo: Gigabyte GA775 945GM S2 PSU: Generic 300 Watts No Gpu using integrated one. What i plan: I already have got a Corsair CX430V2UK psu + Xfx 6750 graphics card and 1tb WD Green HDD + 160gb WD HDD + Corsair Vengenace 4gb @1600mhz Now i am confused between what processor i should go for and if my psu can handle it. Requirements: Watching Movies Gaming (i want to play latest games at respectable fps around 40) Video Encoding (amateur) No SLI or Crossfire No overclocking I have a monitor with native res 1400x900 which i wont upgrade for 2 years or more. So.. Which processor should i go for? AMD one is cheaper by 50bucks then i5.. and got more punch but idk if my psu can handle it. But the mobo choice for i5 is good and i found this Link: http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-b75m-d3h-motherboar... for under 100$ with USb 3.0 Sata 3 and 32gb ram support. I need advice on a good mobo for AMD (if suggested) under 100$. So what you guys think? PS: I can disable some cores on AMD to save power (if possible) until i can get a better gpu cuz cor me its a bigger upgrade from core 2 duo even after all pruning.

If you plan on overclocking then the FX is way superior. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
