[SOLVED] AMD Llano A8-3870k or i5 760

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
About year ago I built a budget gaming desktop. My Specs are A8-3870k, A75MG BioStar MB. Then after a couple weeks, I decided to get a Radeon HD 6870. (I didn't do enough research to find out that I cannot crossfire my 6980 with my Hybird 6550. About a week ago, my friend upgraded to a i5 3570, and gave me his i5 760 and a MSI H55M-P33 MB. I checked the benchmark for both cpu's and they were graded the same here



I noticed that the OC on the A8 is really good, but I cant really get far with a 650w PS.

As of right now, I'm not too sure if the switch is worth my time. I use it to game only, and no work at all. I would be grateful if you guys can let me know your opinions.

Thanks

If you mostly use your computer for gaming, you'll get more performance out of the i5.

The i5-760 no doubt about it.

Perhaps you could sell both and get a more modern CPU and motherboard combo?
