When i want or need something that I can rely on, i don't mind paying a few extra bucks. Boought this 8320 instead of an i5 as I thought it would be a less expensive, and better option. NOPE, not the case at all. I regret not getting an i5 over this FX cpu. WHY??
No good mATX borads for overclocking.
NO mini ITX boards.
The only good AM3+ boards for overclocking are Asus Sabertooth and Crosshair which are pricey.
REquires a beefy and expensive cooler for mild Overclock.
Resale value is horrible.
And performance is just not on par with a 3570K.
And if you don't OC or do a 500-700mhz OC??
Everything you said becomes null
The i3 is not that rock solid. On forums everybody recomands the FX. And the FX 8320 costs like the highest priced i3 now. Its a tremendous value.
Pentiums have the same price as AMDs overclockable quads. The same problem. Why doesn't intel drop the prices for these CPUs I ask. Because you can't say they are rock solid.Edited by Serios - 9/5/13 at 11:19am
