I have absolutely no doubt that you will be happy with the 8320! Put a little overclock on it and you will be golden.

On another note, its been proven that AMD's high end chips were never meant to compete with Intel's i7. Those processors are in a completely different price category. When you take a look at price/performance right now, AMD beats Intel.

What is wrong with you? Why are you even on the Internet? HOW CAN ANYBODY POSSIBLY GIVE A RATIONAL ARGUMENT WEIGHING BOTH PROS AND CONS OF TWO COMPETING GROUPS? Seriously, I am curious about how the PS4 and XB1 hardware will affect game development. I hope that the 9590 will bring down prices a bit since AMD aims for $200 or less, and if only $10 gets you 2 more GHz then they'll shoot themselves in the foot. Also the tech is getting more precise every day. Given a 32nm transistor, then 100 of those could be lined up on a sperm cell, considered the smallest human cell at 3 to 5 um (minus ~50 um flagellum). When did we get this technology?! Final question: what does multithreaded mean? is that just an application that uses multiple cores? Thank you all, I have decided on a more reliable mobo and an octacore CPU.
