Well it depends on what are you planning on doing with that setup because 50% of that is useless

Imho, both of AMD and Intel are good. But 8 cores are good only for heavyweight programs. In one hand, if u're building PC for games and don't want to buy overpriced CPU, then AMD is the best choise. But for this one i'm recommend you to buy a normal one CPU cooler, like from Noctua or Thermalright. On the other hand if ur wallet have the black hole, buy something from Intel. i5-4690K my favorite one. Here's my few videos with FX-8350 + Titan X:

a lot of people just stick to what they know, i have always owned intels, but I've built a lot of amd systems for friends and others. its all the same, however I'll tell u a lot of those 8 core amds are really not true 8 core cpus.

I agree with Singh as well. If you have the cash then go intel. I'm honestly on my first AMD setup now which was scary to me as well since I wasn't sure how well it would work. I'm actually surprised that it plays what games I have very well, and has no issues other then the stock CPU cooler sucks. I don't have any bench marking test recorded to show, but I can prob come up with some if desired.


.:Current Setup is:.
Motherboard: Asus Crosshair V Formula Z
CPU: AMD FX 8350
RAM: 16 Gigs of DDR3 Crucial Balistix RAM
Disk Space: 256 Gig Samsung SSD 850 Pro and a 3TB Western Digital Sata drive
Graphics: 2 Asus Striker Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 running in SLI
Sound Card: sound blaster recon3d fatal1ty pro
CD/DVD Drive: Asus Blu-Ray Optical Drive
PSU: Corsair CX750M (need a bigger one as this isn't enough to power both GPU's well. It's also making it so I can't overclock anything)
Case: Cooler Master Storm Stryker
Asus Crosshair V Formula Z | AMD FX 8350 | 16 Gigs of DDR3 Crucial Balistix RAM | 256 Gig Samsung SSD 850 Pro | 3TB Western Digital Sata drive | 2 Asus Striker Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 running in SLI | Asus Blu-Ray Optical Drive | Corsair CX750M PSU | Cooler Master Storm Stryker Case
