AMD Build vs Intel Build Tags: Build AMD Intel Systems Last response: November 25, 2012 2:54 AM in Systems Share reznapvi2 November 24, 2012 10:19:51 PM Hello everyone, I have two builds that are similar in price, but i need your help with picking an AMD build or an Intel build. (i have the ram, hard drive, and a dvd burner already.) (builds for gaming) (the AMD build has the 7950, intel has the 7870.) AMD build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/piq8 Intel build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pivH So which one do you think will perform better, i mostly use it for gaming, recording my gameplay, etc. Thanks!!

The 7870 with the i5 is going to be more balanced than the 6300 with the 7950. | Report abuse Reply to Deemo13 Related ressources Intel Build vs AMD Build - which parts list is better? - Forum Intel vs amd cheap build - Forum AMD Phenom II X4 965 vs Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz for new build - Forum AMD vs Intel ~$600 Gaming Build - Forum Intel VS Amd 700$ build - Forum Ask the community Publish reznapvi2 November 25, 2012 12:15:22 AM will there be nice cyber monday deals for some of these products? | Report abuse Reply to reznapvi2 Deemo13 November 25, 2012 12:19:48 AM There probably will be, yes.

Maybe that would save just enough to allow the 7950 and an i5. | Report abuse Reply to twelve25 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>AMD Build vs Intel Build> Related ressources: ForumAMD vs .
