More about best
  1. Up to your personal needs. If you game, both are good. Video encoding, Intel. Overclocking, AMD. All about preference, needs, and budget.
  2. Hi :)

    AMD 1100T ...imho....

    All the best Brett :)
  3. Gaming, productivity, video work, or just general purpose?
  4. +1^ will depend on your purpose. However make no doubt the 1100t is a very good AMD CPU, one of the best AMD processors made but it is very rare. I wanted to buy one but I can't find any new ones, I had to settle with a Phenom II X4 955 which has lesser performance and is only a quad core.

    That being said for gaming I would go for the 3570k.

    Bunch of brand new 1100t's on eBay, around 300$ though.

    Damn, $300! I saw the 1100t in a cached version of newegg that was on a normal price of $199.99. Kind of overpriced....

    Well for a brand new discontinued CPU, I'd buy it in a heartbeat - I really do want one, not enough cash :/ I need a system, probably gonna go with 965.

    Interesting, but at the price why not settle for the FX-8350?
    According to this on Skyrim which is kind of a CPU bound game, the FX-8350 beats it.

    Anyways the 965 will do just fine for gaming, I'm content with the 955. However, if you want...I'm going to be building a time machine and going back in time to grab a Phenom II X6 1100T (when the prices weren't so high) from the past and bring it back to my current time, you want me to bring you one as well? :lol:

    Edit: Found another series of benchmarks, this time with the 1100t, 3570k and FX-8350.
