Well depends on if u mean budget on processor price or rig build. For the processor, I want the most bang for my buck without costing an arm and leg. Now that you have a general idea wat I am looking for, please let me know your thoughts.

the only AMD processor i would reccomend is a APU (A10), which is a great bang-for-buck as you can dual-graphics it.

because the Intel Core i7-3820 is not a k-series model, you can't overclock it. no good
the i7-3930K is waaaay too expensive, and you will never fully utalizie it unless you do some sort of processing, programming, rendering or bitcoin mining (not worth it)

get the Intel Core i7-4770K, since its the never version of the i7-3770K and only 20 bucks cheaper

Thx for ur feed back, if I decide to go Intel route I will get the 4770K and if i go the AMD route I will go with the FX-8350 for now and I plan to do some serious OCing. If/when the new FX-9370 or FX-9590 Pile Driver become Individually available to purchase (Right now they r only offered commercially with combo purchases on Newegg), I will prolly go with the FX-9370, which is also 8 Unlocked Cores but stock speed is 4.5 GHz with boost to 4.7GHz, and it is currently 387.99 on Newegg, because the 9590 stock speed is 4.7GHz w/boost to 5GHz but it is running at 900 Bucks right now, and so far, no good reviews on 9590 and no reviews at all on 9370. So I will prolly stick with FX8350, for now and then OC that beast!!! XD XD XD

I have seen the A10 series that u mentioned the A10-6800K and the 5800K , though the A10-6800K has slightly higher stock and boost frequency and the A10-5800K boosts to the same 4.2GHz as the FX8350, I honestly still believe the FX8350 will out perform it, have a higher OC potential (Remember it broke Guinness Book of world records as the highest overclockable CPU to date), plus it is 8-cores unlocked to 4, (BUT I am impressed with AMD A-series on chip graphic capabilities) plus you have to factor in, will consumers get a quad core cpu for $140-$165 with On chip video? Or spend 30-50 bucks more ($199.99) for an 8-Core without on chip graphics and just get a BEAST dedicated video card singly or in Xfire/SLI??? You gotta factor in all the angles. The A-Series is good for average everyday entry level gaming, but for enthusiasts and hardcore gamers, 8-cores for couple bucks more looks more attractive imo.
=) XD

Keep feedback going, I getting great advice and suggestions from everyone, I REALLY appreciate it, cause I want to build an Elite/Dream machine.
