I'm a student, so programs like Visual C#, Expressions, CS5, and Java IDE's are important to me. I compile a lot of code and create websites, and sometimes render videos that I recorded during gameplay. (65% of the time)
On the other hand I game for hours on the latest games like FC3. (32% of the time)
8350 is what is perfect for me, because of the things I need and want to do.
For purely gaming, intel.
lol i am glad i bought fx 8350
