Ok so i was wondering which would be better for my new setup. im trying to choose between i5-3670k and amd fx-8150. i would like it to push my games as much as possible. i have read all kinds of stuff and it seems the i5 would be better for the games? i not quite sure which way to go since both builds would be like a dollar or 2 apart.
give me a budget, location, if you are going to overclock, and if you are going to do a dual video card config in the future. ill suggest a build
the i5 3570k smacks the 8150 in the face in everything. if it was the 8350 it would be around tied (with the 8350 beating it in multi-threaded apps like photoshop)
ok well im in the usa and looking to spend below $500, i have some parts i was going to use from my last one. like case, video card, hdds and dvd burner. all i need is the cpu, mobo and ram. ill be upgrading the video card in a few weeks, but the one i have will suffice till then. dont much care about overclocking, as long as the games look nice. was considering dual video cards but im not sure if i would even need that.
CPU. price match the CPU at us.ncix to get free shipping along with the ram
heres the motherboard
to match the i5 3570k properly, id suggest at least getting this video card
if you dont overclock, get this CPU and motherboard instead
CPU. once again, price match at us.ncix
