Intel is faster in general processing performance. so pair any discrete card higher than GT 440(in both cpus) and Intel is your choice.
EDIT: by the way, this is the i3-3220, the a10 might actually be better than i3-2105. im not sure
EDIT2: indeed the a10 is better according to this site. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i...-AMD-A10-5800K
EDIT3: based on what i've read i3-3220 > A10-5800K > i3-2xxx
In everday benchmarks, A10-5800K trades blows with the i3 3220. The i3 2120 is not as good so A10-5300K is better all around...... IMO
A10-5800K traded blows with the 3220K, In PC Mark, excel, Photoshop, Cinebench, passmark, the A10-5800K won. It will beat the i3 2120 even more with more L2 Cache.
Either choice won't be bad but Trinity will do pretty damn good with multithreading with the new Piledriver cores and the new instruction set. If you want to hold tight, I could have a handful of real world and synthetic benchmarks done against the 3220 by Wed. evening. If you can't wait, I will still run them... Don't get me wrong, I am not an AMD fanboy. 2 of my main rigs are Intel 3770K and 3930K. I have the A10-5800K as a home theater and tested/reviewed it. I was pretty dam impressed for a $129 APU.
