AMD FX 8350 or Intel i7

Post by townsherif » Thu Dec 06, 2012 12:14 pm

I have bene debating to get either FX 8350 or i7 for my new build. I read the reviews and they are mix in terms of performance, etc. But FX 8350 can be had for $180, etc as compare to i7s are in the mid $250s.....

I do alot of Video encoding, virtualizations, etc and i am more drawn toward FX then i7. What are people saying about it?

The AMD FX-8350 is a very capable processor and does pretty good at video encoding -

I see Newegg has the FX-8350 for $210, so if you can get it for $180 and it fits the budget then give it a shot.
