Thats the fifth time you have made up your mind. Do yourself a favor, and take what everyone here says with a grain of salt. Some people only recommend the brand they currently have in order to make themselves feel better about their purchase. That goes for both AMD guys and Intel guys.
Some people also have money to piss away on overkill systems for gaming, and think the rest of us do as well.
The plain and simple fact is AMD is perfectly fine for gaming, gaming mostly relies on your GPU, so if your not being bottle necked your fine. Fanboys claim or act like if you get AMD you will have massive lag in games. That is just ignorant. I have owned the best of both brands and When I am in a FPS I never noticed a difference. Thuban, Vishera, Ivy, Sandy are all great chips and are fine for gaming.
Only if your doing more than just gaming should you look at all those synthetic benchmarks.Ans when you do Its funny how alot of Intel fanboy's will ignore the benchmarks where Vishera will do better than 3570K and even sometimes outperform a 3770K, I think thats a great accomplishment, but Intel guys will still act like the processor is trash, why?
