Ah ok. Yeah, see what happens with piledriver. If you are disappointed, which might not be surprising, go Intel. You're already spending a ton of money. Intel usually wins in the CPU department.

If I were you, I'd just go with an Ivy Bridge setup. The high end motherboard will roughly be the same price, but the CPU will be more. I don't think 8 cores is really necessary to be honest. The Ivy Bridge is a great chip. Check out the 3570k. It's about 230 USD. BUT, if you want to see how Piledriver works, go for it. There's absolutely no rush. It's all up to you, my friend.

Thanks for the advice my reasons for going with AMD are because I like under dogs and I honestly think Piledriver is going to be better than alot of people think it will be with performance close to if not better than the 3570k and probably a little cheaper *fingers crossed*.

That's what they said about Bulldozer tongue.gif Look where those went. That's why I'm not too excited for it. I'm glad you have an idea on what you want though, either side! smile.gif You'll have a good build either way

Well all I can do is hope that the figures I've seen are correct and consistent if so then Piledriver will be pretty good. If not them I may still get it just to hold me over until Excavator.

Dont listen to anyone who bad mouths AMD FX series. I've had 2 so far and they are both are really nice. I use the FX-6100 for gaming alot and it takes whatever i throw at it with ease. My work computer has a 8120. 8350 is a good buy though. If its your first build you cant ever go wrong with a FX (unless its the 4170). I like the FX because you also have the ability to run alot of multithreaded programs like CADD, Photoshop, stuff like that and still have great performance on games.

Unless the PD is amazing for price/performance, I would either try to find a phenom or go intel.

Going from a phenom to an i5 gave me a nice bit of increase in cpu intensive games like skyrim, mine craft with god mods,battlefield,sleeping dogs and what not. If your on a budget though AMD is always just fine...........even though once I start something I cant stop so waiting for the PD would be lol impossible for me

Yep to be honest the only thing that would push me to go with Intel in my build is AMD completely closesing shop it may sound crazy but regardless of how bad people may think Piledriver is or will be once its released as long as its some improvement over Bulldozer and is not over priced I'm going with it.
