Intel 15-3570K or A10

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I've looked into building a mini-itx gaming computer and I fell to the problem of this: I'm an AMD fan but their best processor is an A10 APU. But with Intel I could get any or their high end processor class (i3, i5, i7). Which should I choose. (The A10 is cheaper so thats another reason I'm considering it)

The Core i5 3570K will outperform the A10-5800K in every single situation you can think of EXCEPT for integrated graphics performance. They're really not comparable at all considering they are $70 apart in price. The Core i3 3220 is what you should be comparing to the A10-5800K. The FX-8350 is what you should be comparing to the Core i5 3570K.


One thing I will tell you is socket FM2 is supposed to get a solid 3 years of processor support (AMD said this themselves) however LGA 1155 is in the process of being phased out by LGA 1150 in a matter of 3-4 months. BUT the A10 is the best you can get with socket FM2. There's no CPU with the equivalent power of a Core i5 on socket FM2, nor are there any plans for there to be...currently at least.

Thanks, I am trying to build a mini-itx gaming computer (low endish for gaming) and I needed to see what was better for the job.

What's your budget and where do you live? Maybe we can help you out with picking out parts. thumb.gif

I live near Seattle and I have a $400 budget (But I all ready have the hd, gpu, and dvd drive). I'd also try to use the bitfenix prodigy

I'm actually trying to get rid of a Prodigy, but I'm not allowed to sell through OCN as I don't meet the specifications yet.

What games do you play? If you plan on playing high end games such as Metro 2033, Max Payne 3, etc, then it will help with the equation. Also, how often do you upgrade? Do you like to overclock? Will you run multiple GPU setup in the near future?

Might help us narrow down your search. thumb.gif

What do you play and what resolution is it at?
If you're doing counter strike or LOL, the A10 is the obvious answer, but if you are playing some of the higher end games, you will need a discrete GPU for optimal performance.
