It is time for a new rig and I am a little on the fence about which CPU to go with. I am only willing to spend $200 at the maximum on the CPU. My question here is what is the best AMD CPU I can purchase new for this price and what is the best Intel CPU that I can purchase new for this price. I will be overclocking the CPU and will be using an aftermarket heatsink with it. As far as integrated graphics goes, I will be using a dedicated GPU so there isn't really a need for integrated graphics. If possible, please make suggestions that are current generation processors such as Haswell and Richland...but I will go back one generation if the performance will be better. Also, I will be using this build for audio editing/production, video editing, gaming, and also everyday tasks like Internet and MS Office. I plan to have this build complete and running within the next month or two.
