February 8, 2013 2:08:44 PM

I was wondering when trying to play games like Assassins Creed III will i get a significant difference in speed and quality of the game itself.

I was thinking I will have a GeForce GTX660 Ti.

Just wondering if the processor will make a difference.

I will not be OC at all unless you believe necessary.

The i5 will give you a slight boost in fps, but not anything really notable.

if you only want to play games get the i5 if for video editing get the 8350 as the extra threads will serve you better :)

Can't go wrong either way.

If you are planning on gaming primarily, then the i5 for sure. Tends to be a stronger gaming CPU overall. For Assassin's Creed 3 specifically, the i5 is significantly better. Here are a bunch of CPU's compared for AC3 specifically. They are sandy bridge and bulldozer, but the rough trend should hold the same for ivy bridge and piledriver.
