Yeah, impossible to argue with those folks...they won't even read a benchmark properly.
And yeah, different architectures can't be compared but realistic overclocks can be compared, same as pricing and overall performance, which is a win for Intel atm.
I even showed them a used deal you can find here, but still they insist on spending more on a crappy AMD cpu.
210usd gets you a used 2600k, 60usd for a 16gb ram kit here aswell, random used board or even new and you get a 370usd 16gb ram rig, add a gtx660 and you're set.

He lives next to a MC and I did a full cpu mb and ram for 400$ for him to look at.

True. I don't know if he edits video for a living or if it's a hobby but it sounds comparable to buying a tool. I'm a carpenter by trade, I work with tools and wood for a living. Buying budget tools is foolish. I spent $60 on a hammer, lifetime warranty. My tape measure costs $35, I go through 3 or more a year depending on weather. I have a $100 set of nail bags and tool belt, been using it for 6 years. I won't buy power tools at home depot, more often than not they sell B grade. Dewalt makes it easy. Check the serial number. One of the first the characters is a B instead of an A. All of my stuff is top notch because I need performance and longevity. To spend $600 on a work computer for CPU intensive tasks seems ridiculous. I won't suggest that kid a CPU, I suggest he gets another job, day or night, doesn't matter to me. But he needs to tighten up.

Honestly he needs a 3930k but the 3770k will get him close.

Yep Not all but a Big part of Amd Fan boys just seem a bit brain dead and tunnel visioned..

Like they stuck a bunch of illiterate trolls in a room showed them an Amd video from 2005 "Athlon64"

And slapped one of these are there chests

And sent them out in herds to spread false information and deny the true information and call it Bias..

I mean i Destroy them in each thread... with nothing but the truth... The hard core fan boys have to read it yet.. because they can just call me names but meh XD.... Point is getting the Op the best system for his money.. not to lie to the poor guy...

The Path of the Amd Fan boi..

First your fearful of making the wrong choice.

2nd your angry when you learn you did..

3rd you hate people that remind you..

4th you gotta suffer with it because your on a 600$ budget and now your stuck with it.

That's what I'm thinking, he he needs 12-18 threads.

Lol, this is what happened about a year ago when I was uninformed and bought a FX-6100 because it was new and I was still rocking an Athlon 64 X2.

I started getting more into PC gaming as I had taken a couple years off. Was out of the computer scene for a while and just bought something that seemed reasonable.

Well this dude "malmental" over at Tom's Hardware (tongue.gif) wouldn't leave me alone about my choice in CPU. And eventually I sold it and picked up a PII X4 980BE because I could use the same motherboard. That was actually a good move despite losing some $$ in the process. Since then I've gotten into the wheel-n-deal hobby where I change hardware like underpants. Mostly selling systems to people or just core components and then buying used or new parts that are on major discount. It's pretty fun, I've had quite a few systems. This i5-3570K and P8Z77-V Pro will probably be the best motherboard/chip combo I've ever had.
