Sorry if this is the wrong subcategory.
I could go with the AMD FX6300 + ASRock extreme3 990fx
Or pay more and get the intel i5 3570k with the ASRock B75M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel B75
Which should I go with?
For $260, I could get the AMD FX6300 + ASROCK EXTREME3 990FX
For $200 I could get the AMD FX6300 + MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970
For $290 I could get the intel i5 3570k + ASRock B75M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel B75
Which of these is the most wise when it comes to saving money aswell as being able to play cpu intensive games like DayZ without much lag on 1600x900
Any other suggestions are very welcome
Thanks
