Hello, I am starting a new build and I was wondering what the best Mobo/CPU combo would be best for Some modern games such as GW2/Diablo 3. I am not a FPS junkie and don't normally game in 1080P, however I do wish to have enjoyable playable experiences with at minimum MEDIUM graphics settings. I have heard that Intel Processors are faster for single threaded actions(Whatever that means) but is that to say the AMD is terrible? Help please!
If you only want medium settings, go with an i3-3220. As for a motherboard, the ASRock Extreme 4 can handle your needs. If you want to go with slightly better frames, upgrade $100 to the i5-3570k. Diablo 3 is a more GPU intensive game so you won't see much difference between the 2 processors.
