That GPU you mention in the list seems like very good value. I will investigate more on it.


Louis is right when he says I have a "small" preference for AMD, but in the end, I value performance over all else, so feel free to reference an Intel CPU IF YOU HAVE FACTS that it is better performance than an equivalent AMD CPU for the price

I don't wanna start an Intel vs. AMD war over here. Benchmarks, reviews, personnal experience (if you used the part you are refering), but only facts.

I wasn't attempting to start a war don't worry man thumb.gif I was just suggesting because I was referring to the original post. I admit that Intel perform better than AMD just AMD is cheaper tongue.gif

No problem. The twin-frozr cooler is a good cooler, nice and quiet as well. Get whichever cpu you like, for gaming I would personally prefer the 4670k but its really personal preference. Both good value for money and will leave you impressed.

Yeah that is the word I got too, hence why I posted in the AMD section biggrin.gif

I saw some reviews that stated that the AMD FX-8350 usually matches closely Intel 3570K, 3770K or 3820K in many recent games.

Yeah I saw one on YouTube that was saying that the 8350 more or less matches and sometimes beats the i7-3770k in some aspects. I'll post the link below for you to look at.

I just saw this page as I kept searching http://cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-4670K+%40+3.40GHz&id=1921

I need to check the legitimacy of this site, but it mostly summarize what I've been hearing over all the reviews.

AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core is currently the 2nd best in CPU Value (CPU Mark / $Price ), and it's among the bests.
