    LOL, its not like SR or whatever comes out next year will let his computer last 5-6 years versus what is available now...Buy Intel now unless you know you need all those threads that the AMD can offer.

    I came up with about a dozen snarky comments about this but I can't choose. So instead I'll just ask in what way do you not "buy" it?

    hUMA is irrelevant unless you plan to use the integrated graphics. Even if you do, hUMA isn't featured on Richland, so you'll have to wait until next summer. Even if you do, APUs aren't AMD's fastest chips.

    If ya can wait why not wait till broadwell, even if it's barely better it's still better and as you say it's gotta hold up for 5+ years so to me it be money better spent.

    If you get it now i would go Intel for sure just no question about it if you can afford too.

    Screw theory.

    I strongly disagree. Since Haswell isn't here yet you might swell wait to see how Steamroller performs. It will be available in late October or early November. If you have money to burn go and throw it on Has well. If you want the biggest bang for the buck and close to Has well performance, I would say check out the FX steamroller release. .

    If it's all pretty much the same to you, buy AMD: they could use the money much more than Intel :toast:

    On a more serious note, the AMD Steamroller is supposed to drop into socket AM3+ boards, so if you can't wait, I'd get the FX-8350 (I have one, and it's extremely nice to be able to actually keep running Folding@Home on 4 cores, while I play a game on the other 4 cores - Intel CPUs only have 6 physical cores on their highest end CPUs) and you'll still be able to drop in a next generation AMD CPU. If you go Intel, you probably won't be able to do that. If you can wait, wait until we hear benchmarks for Steamroller at least before you drop your cash and make a choice.

    I cant get a 8350 and later update to steam roller, and the AM3+ is no use to me cause when my next update comes if i buy steam roller they would have changed the socket cause excavator would be the last cpu on AM3+.

    So why did you seek counsel as to a CPU choice if you had no intention to consider an alternative. It seems you were merely seeking a pat on the back ?

    So, get a 6300 which has plenty power for today's use in order to upgrade IF NEEDED without spending much.

    FX 8350 since the piledriver architecture is in both new consoles and almost all games are ported now anyway.

    Ohk, please answer my question as an individual, if u were at my place and had to buy a pc which u have to keep for the next 4 years, what will u do? Buy a 4770k, a 8350 or wait for steam roller?

    FYI, its not easy to sell used stuff in my country so i cant get a 6300 and sell it later.

    You have six pages, that's about 150 different opinions on the matter. 4770k isn't out yet. Steamroller isn't out yet. There are no hard facts on either yet. If you want a new CPU. Figure out what you want to do with your computer, find what is in your budget and choose.
     
    theoneandonlymrk, d1nky and suraswami say thanks.
