so does anyone use a AMD cpu for fm?? if so how does it compare to intel?
ive used AMD since it's athlon 64bits days. Mostly because its the biggest bang for the buck.
If you can still get a hold of Phenom II series, ex. 955. Then you got a fantastic cpu for a very cheap price and that handles all the games without much fuss.
Obviously recently Intel have the advantage, if your just in for a better overall PC intel will have the edge.
But for the money AMD are still worth it cause u can go with cheaper cpu/mobo setup and put rest on other stuff like more space or better graphics etc.
I have the AMD fx-series, the 8350. Even though dissapointing when they launched it, for normal PC use and gaming it still does very good. At launch it was too expensive, but recently the prices have gone down a lot so more worth it.
If anyone is going for a new build, i do recommend AMD to save a few bucks and put it on a new SSD harddisk. SSD makes a huge difference as well.
