I know the bulild needs some other pars as case.
question for a friend


CPU @ AMD Bulldozer FX-4100 QuadCore 3,6GHz AM3+
Motherboard @ MSI 970A-G46, AMD 970, 4x DDR3, SATA3 USB3
Ram @ 8GB DUAL DDR3 1600MHz, Corsair Vengence
Hard drive @ 1TB SATA3, 7200RPM, 64MB buffer
Video card @ Geforce N660GTX 2GB GDDR5 2xDVI, HDMI & DP

..................................................................................................

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77-D3H
CPU:Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4 Ghz Quad Core

The 2nd build for sure. The 3570K runs circles around the 4100. And if you buy an aftermarket cooler and overclock it, it wont even be close at all.

The Intel build is much better. The i5 3570k is superior to ALL of the AMD processors, at stock speeds AND overclocked, and the 7850 is equivalent to the GTX660, so the cheaper of the two would be the better deal. The Z77 is also better for overclocking, and has more features overall. The 3570k overclocks a LOT better. The second build wins in every aspect.

Hope I helped, and good luck! :D

^ The 7870 is $230 now too... That review is kind of old.

Also, you should be focusing more on a GPU than CPU with BF3. Quite honestly, all the reviewers I've seen have shown that Piledriver matches up with Intel chips in graphically demanding games like BF3 or Metro 2033.

With that said, check out my $650 build here:

Better CPU, better GPU, and better all around build. I would even go for the 7950 if you have the money to do so.

Ok thanks. :)  Intel=BEST
what would be a better mono for the 2nd build:

MSI Z77A-G43 G3 - Intel Z77, 4x DDR3, S1155 (price in my country $148,76)
VS
Gigabyte Z77-D3H (price in my country $187,91)

^ Did you not check out mah post :( 

Also what country are you in? You should be able to get the 7870 for the AMD build or even the 7950 for the money you're spending on the Intel build...

I was referring to Tom's GPU hierarchy chart, it's not the clearest chart, but I'd certainly agree with aznshinobi, the 7870 is the better GPU for the price.

For simplicity, just go i5 3570K. Those retailers don't even sell the FX-6300, Piledriver chips in general. The i5 3570K is a better chip, but the money you save on the FX-6300 will allow for a better GPU. Seeing as you can't get it (FX-6300) anyways, just go Intel..

Also, per the price, go with the 7950, it's almost the same price and it's much much better. If not the 660 Ti is fine.

Definitely the second build because of the CPU. The i5-3570k is a monster; don't get anything less than that.

Tanks allot guys.
what would be a better Motherboard for the second build (best for the buck)?

MSI Z77A-G43 G3 - Intel Z77, 4x DDR3, S1155 (price in my country $148,76)
VS
Gigabyte Z77-D3H (price in my country $187,91)

Per the price, the G43 is a better deal.
