Got 500$ need opinion now. buying soon

trying to buy a new plateform, since my p67 board is kicking the dust.

3 outta 4 memory slots are shot, rma it is not an option as shipping is costing more than the mobos worth tbh.

im thinking of either these 2 options.

but the amd seems more in my range.

mobo:

cpu:

cooler:

?

got a hyper212 evo. just wondering if i can squeeze 500megahertz with this or i need another cooler.

alternative options are this.

mobo:

http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=71114&vpn=P8Z77-V%20LK&manufacture=ASUS&promoid=1360

cpu:

    Well For what your doing id say the 8350 For multitasking its great beats the i5 and programs that use all the 8cores will be much better on the 83xx. As you said you know in gaming its a bit slower however in the real world you wouldnt notice the difference since its a phew fps, Now if you want you could jump on the i7 3770k. I personally find the core i7s overpriced however if you have the money and want the best get the i7 however if you want to save some money and still get a beastly cpu get the 8350, However if your going for the 8350 might as well get the 8320 and OC it


    But im sure you know all this since your badge is expert.
  2. well im limited in budget :). yes ive got 6000+ posts. but that doesnt mean i dont need a second opinion.
  3. meh we. im getting the 8core. 8cores is too hard to miss. might sacrifice a few fps. but we.

    not just a gamer but a power user.
  4. also thanks to ipwn for ur advice but i cant afford getting high level mobo+i7 :P .
