  1. They're fairly closely matched. What do you currently have?

    Its going to be paired up with a Radeon 7850, 16 gb of ram, and 1 tb. with a 450 standard watt.
  3. Current cpu? Are you looking to upgrade from one to the other? If you have neither I would go amd as if you go with the Intel you're buying into a 3(?) year old platform and I doubt you'd find a board with usb3,sata3 and the like.

    What's your budget, country?
  4. Bulldozer is not the best choice, Neither is the old 1st gen i7.

    If your going amd make sure its pile driver. If your going intel sandy bridge and ivy bridge.

    The 1st gen i7s are still fast but there just not viable for new builds
  5. I vote 8320.
  6. Ditto, I vote the FX8320, the i7 920 is a dead socket with no boards.
