Fx-8120 - Page 3

Get the 2500k and if you cannot afford that then go for the 960t even that is way ahead of the 8120 in performance. FX is a serious step back.

In no possible way in hell is the 960t ahead of the 8120, esspecially in the applications like video editing. That is just an outright fabrication. I dont know where you're getting your facts from but you need to check again Boyyoooo.

That being said, OP, I dont think your friend would be disappointed with either of two (2500k or 8120), They both perform similarly in video editing tasks, but slap a nice aftermarket cooler on the 8120 and take it up to around 4.5ghz-ish and it really starts to perform admirably. And given the price savings you would achieve by going with the 8120, you could easily afford to throw in a very nice aftermark cooler to really push it to its maximum. You wont notice much of a difference between the two in gaming, as long as you pair it with a decent video card and play at a good resolution.

Though if your friend is ever considering a nice SLI/CF setup, the 2500k would be the one to go with. Guaranteed either route you take you wont be disappointed.

You need to get a thuban like a 1045t and overclock it to 4.1ghz and rock on with that untill piledriver comes out.
I just switched from my 8120 at 4.7ghz to my 4.1ghz 1035t and I can tell you that the thuban is way cooler, efficient, and will do pretty much the same thing and fx series will do.

The breaking point for me is when you start hitting the 4.7ghz range with a bulldozer your power consumption is around 400-500watts.
