You took everything I said out of context. Yeah I was kind of a jerk, but I tried apologizing. I never said I wasn't rude, but this has gone from a civil reply and answer of a max temp to a knife and gun fight. We don't have to call people "idiots" or slander them. Politely voice your opinion, if they chose to ignore or challenge it, present facts or ignore them.
My main point was that nobody posting worked for AMD, so their statements were just that, their own statements. Sorry if I stepped on your toes dude.
now we all know that the FX is stated by AMD as a true 8 core.
And honestly, it's your money people. Buy what you prefer and run them however you want. I loved my 8350 and it was NEVER a bottleneck for me. The only thing I noticed when I switched to the 4770k was smoother frame rates and a higher minimum FPS. I jumped ship because my degree is focused mainly around Intel's architecture and I am hoping for a job as an engineer at the new D1X facility being built by them.
For the money, the 8350 is a GREAT buy. But if you have the extra cash, the 4770k is pretty amazing and comes with a little bit more sugar in the candy.
Although you get PCIE 3.0, the socket 1150 is limited in multi-GPU configurations. It only offers single x16, so dual cards run in x8 and so on. While the AM3+ side has multiple x16 lanes.
