FX8120 vs. i5-2500K vs. 1045T setup - Page 3

post #21 of 25
I really dont want to start the bulldozer crap all over again, but look at this:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1142647/fx-8120-vs-i5-2500k-its-a-tie

Im not saying go either way cause of it, just looking to show that amd prices these on-par for how they do, even in benchmarking where they have been put down. That said, they were delayed by like 2 whole years, kind of pissed at amd for that.

960T deals are just $10 cheaper than the 1045T deals. And the 3870K is $135 but does not come with a $40 off motherboard discount.

And I use only Windows. I play the occasional game like Skyrim and such but rarely ever video edit or anything like that. For some reason going from my i7 920 to a Q6600 I can feel a pretty big difference but it's probably due to the really really slow HD paired with the Q6600. I had a E3300 clocked to 3.9ghz and it felt really fast lol.

Both combos from Microcenter
FX8120
GA-970A-UD3
Both for $200 total

or wait 2 weeks to see if this deal comes back:
2500k
GA-Z68AP-D3-B3
Both for $230 total

or

1045T
GA-78LMT-S2P ($140)
880G-E45 ($165)
ASRock 970 Extreme 3 ($180)
M5A97 ($180)
I don't want to sound brash. but why would you make a thread about any of those systems VS a 2500k rig...it's simple rhetoric.
No CPU in that category is even equivalent to a 2500k. And although the money sounds right, there's a reason those other chipsets are so cheap. Spend the 230$ if the deal still rides...but at least get the 2500k...it's only 179.99 anyway.

Just added one more option with the current i5-2550k CPU deal for $160 and I guess a motherboard from somewhere for under $80 (to keep it about the same price as the i5-2500k combo).

I am not sure about this one because many reports that the i5-2550k is just a worse silicon i5-2500k without the GPU.
