I'm ready to build my next PC. AMD FX-8150 or Intel i5 2500K?
First off, if you're here to chip in your fan-boy nonsense, go eslewhere. I'd like to get honest feedback based on the reviews and specs.
The 4-core Intel Chip is currently the clear winner on basic, every day performance, but once you start multi-tasking, the 8-core AMD will probably come in handy. They're both great for overclocking.
The Intel does seem to be a little more cost-wise, but it's not a deal breaker by any means. However, I feel like in the long run, once software begins to catch up with the technology, the AMD 8-core CPU will begin to outshine the 4-core.
I'm lost. I've been debating it for days and now I can't decide still.
They both seem to be great for overclocking (will probably go for about 4.6-4.8GHZ or so) and heat won't play an issue because I'm going with a Corsair H100 Water-cooler.
The motherboard options are comparable as well.
While I'm at it, Radeon 7990 or Nvidia GTX 670-Superclocked?
