If it's without one, the AMD A10-5800k is better, it has a better on die gpu. If you have a discrete card, the i3-3220 is a better cpu.

Ask ! Get the answer twelve25 a b à CPUs February 5, 2013 10:05:49 PM Both ARE the same price! The A10 is great for low cost/low power builds where yo don't want or can't afford a seperate video card. If you ARE going to run a seperate video card, then I'd get FX-6300 over either the i3 or the A10. Score 0 Mizzat420 February 5, 2013 10:10:19 PM newegg has a 10 dollar promo on that right now so it would be the same price would the fx-6300 outperform the i3 3220? Score 0 djangoringo a b à CPUs a b 4 Gaming February 5, 2013 10:14:27 PM Yes, it's slightly better, the FX-6300, though, the i3 won't bottleneck the 7850 and has a lower power consumption, the performance difference is minimal. Score 0 twelve25 a b à CPUs February 5, 2013 10:18:25 PM The performance difference is minimal for gaming, but the 6300 is a bit faster for many other apps due to the 6 cores. Score 0 Mizzat420 February 5, 2013 10:19:21 PM and i also see that later on i can upgrade the pc to a i5 or 17 later on with the i3 3220? Score 0 twelve25 a b à CPUs February 5, 2013 10:21:33 PM That is true. However, upgrades often never happen. You'd be less likely to need an upgrade with the fx-6300 that can be overclocked. Score 0 djangoringo a b à CPUs a b 4 Gaming February 5, 2013 10:22:18 PM The i3 has ht for other apps, the i3 is underrated, it's a good cpu with a lower power consumption and it's cheaper. Yes, you can add later an i5 or i7 but only from lga 1155.

Score 0 Best solution djangoringo a b à CPUs a b 4 Gaming February 5, 2013 10:29:00 PM It's the socket for the cpus, meaning you can only put the i5 sandy or ivybridge. That's a good motherboard to go with. Share Mizzat420 February 6, 2013 2:54:51 AM Best answer selected by mizzat420. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
