I'd go with the AMD build. It even comes with 8GB of free RAM; what a deal!

thats what I'm thinking and with the money I save I could buy a nicer case. But everywhere I see it's all Intel everything, I just want a machine that if I need to upgrade something I can do it without having to buy 4 different parts again

The Intel based system is much newer than the AMD system but nothing is really "future proof". If you are gaming mostly then the i5 and Asrock mobo would be the better bet.

Personally, I'd go with the AMD system as it is better for video editing and the mobo is much higher end compared to the Intel choice. And you get free RAM! How good is that eh?

yeah I know it's not future proof but I want it to last a decent amount of time and want a sort of upgrade path

That SSD is no use. Get the 840 120 at least.

840 120

If they are beyond your budget get the AMD system and save the money you save towards the SSD. A 64GB SSD isn't enough and you will regret it as you'll want to put a game or two on it and you won't be able to. I regret not getting a 250GB one now I've had my 120 for a while.

Don't get the FX8350, get the 8320. A slight overclock will match the 8350 and it's 50 USD cheaper.

You have 6GB of RAM. Is that 3x2? If so the best you can do is 4x2GB unless you want to run mixed sticks which will force your board to run in single channel, halving your bandwidth and starving your system of RAM bandwidth.

Each game has a different requirement and Crysis 3 needs as many cores as you can throw at it, meaning the FX8350 is a better choice than the 4670K. The other games I don't know and don't think it will matter that much as they're not recent titles.
