But the question here is about the Motherboard/Processor. You're suggesting for me to click cancel on the Intel motherboard and get AMD motherboard instead and go with 8320 8-core AMD processor.
because you mentioned gaming so the unnoticeable performance difference is replaced by a noticeable one. You also mention doing multitasking/multithreading I linked you about a ton benchmarks showing that the substantially cheaper CPU can perform as well if not better than the 3770K in that style of application.
All of that while being a good chunk less expensive giving you the option to go with other higher performance parts (SSD, more ram, better VGA you take your pick)
