Stupid Stupid Stupid Stupid Stupid

I have no words for this asinine and delusional level of arrogance.

I will tentatively agree with most of the responses here, but I find that the benchmarks provided show games poorly optimized for AMD chipsets, the problems with Skyrim are Skyrim's problem, not AMD. And either way your paying more for less with Intel even if it is "good enough".

AMD Vishera 8350 8-core 4.0 GHz $200

Intel Core i5-3750K Quad-core 3.4GHz $220

@doctorsage

Its a price versus performance equation, you spend less on the processor or other parts, and you can upgrade your graphics solution, which as a gamer I assume is your principle motivation.

I'm running an 8350 with a ATI 7970 and I can play Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider 2013, Starcraft 2, and every other game I throw at it, all on Maximum Settings.

I rarely go below 60fps on anything.

Your choice, do some research, read up on the points listed here, and make an informed decision.

As for the Intel vs AMD debate, lets leave it here we all have our opinions, but really this thread is to help doctorsage.

Have a good day.

@mirado:

Your free to take that opinion, I wholeheartedly disagree. Does Intel outperform AMD, yes but only by the slightest margins, and at 2x-4x the cost (depending which model you go for). To say that the 8350 gets "smacked around" is laughable. Price versus performance AMD wins everytime. I implore you to show a trusted benchmark that shows anything more than 5-10% increase in performance vs AMD.

And even you can, you honestly think its worth the price tag?

This is so bad I created an account to post. I build custom computers, you have all the money in the wrong spots.

This was the last PC I built, and it will outperform that abomination you call a computer on every level.
