8320s on avg do not clock as well as 8350s... Read vishera club for that info.
Prices are so close there is no reason to go Amd unless he can not get the 229$ or 249$ deals
Just have to turn the amd tunnel vision off.....
And ppl who know me know I'm not a fan boy I'm just the most honest. Person ur gonna meet and have seen what both chips can do and stay well informed.
I do own a 1055t and a 7970 btw
Anyways op can read the benchmarks and has some common sense he will know which direction to go.
I'm really sick of all of this intel vs amd stuff, with fan boys on either side screaming at each other (not really on this thread, but on another site I posted on it was crazy).
About the gaming and single threaded stuff, I'm really not sure which games use the cpu or gpu the most or are single or multi threaded. I will also be getting games in the future, I think the 3770k for $230 is what I'm going to go for. I play CS:S, CS:GO, the assassins creed games, BF3 and bfbc2, possibly cod in the future, possibly dishonored maybe, tf2, portal 2, brink, and garrys mod (if this helps at all, i have no idea)
@ the person who said I should buy used... why? Wouldn't they just be less reliable crappier parts with no warranty? I would be especially afraid of buying used if it's going to be a $100+ dollar computer part (like a mobo, what if the person spilled water on it or something crazy).
