    Ummm CPU TO CPU side (NO IGP/APU) The I3 murders the 5800K in gaming. Now when we talk about the HD2500 vs 7660D thats a different ball game.

    No it doesn't.:nutkick:

    I tested the 3220K and A10-5800k. No contest my friend plus he is not using it just for gaming.

    LOL, Limited gaming benchies. If yoou look at the entire benchmark sweet, Trinity is a better platform. And again, he is not using it just for gaming.

    I will just say this and exit the thread, If you are going to be using a discrete GPU then I would recommend the I3. If you are just going to be using the IGP then I would go for 5800K

    I have the strange feeling you cannot read. I said IF... I know that the HD2500 sux and would be NO contest to the 7660D. CPU vs CPU.... Not IGP vs APU

    You need to read what the OP needs. There was no mention of running a dedicated graphics card. Thanks for mentioning the no contest BTW.

    So , yeah. I feel MORE lost now than before. is the i3 the Correct decision?
    Or are you Guy's just fighting over "your favorite" Chip's?

    And , YES I would Like to install a Discreet GPU, likely the one I linked in the Post.

    Look at the entire bechmark sweet. The Trinity is better than the 3220K


    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/675?vs=677

    I tested both the A10-5800K and core i3 3220K and the A10-5800k IS ALL AROUND BETTER. The Benchmarks are limited in gaming benchmarks too BTW.

    OK to set the record straight, ARE YOU GETTING A DISCRETE CARD? (7770, 7850, 7870 or GTX 660,GTX 670 YADAYADAYADA)?

    IF so then get a I3-3220

    IF THE ANSWER IS NO.... and you are going to use the one that is built into the CPU

    THEN a 5800K is what you need.

    You have that totally wrong, I LOVE AMD I still have a couple of AMD systems left and I am going to build a 5800K HTPC soon BUT that still does not negate the fact that anything 3220-3770K will beat AMD in gaming benches using a discrete card. This has been shown in many reviews/benches. Yes the AMD is affordable and nice which is a GREAT thing.

    I personally really want a 5800K build :)

    Thanks Das. I am not A AMD not Intel Fanboy.. I run a 3770K and 3930K. When I tested the AMD A10-5800K vs the Intel core i3 3220K I felt the AMD A10 was better plain and simple. The 2 processors traded blows but where Trinity shined, was multi threaded with the new Pile Driver cores. Heck, the 3220K could not even run 3DMark 11(just saying). The Trinity platform is cheaper and will run photoshop, excel, and render better than the 3220K hands down. These Intel Fanboy's have not even touched a Trinity chip and they show you limited benchmarks and fail to say the Trinity is a better overall chip.

    LET'S GET THE RECORD STRAIGHT//////

    Just So it's Clear, It Was Helpful To read ALL those Different Point's , and Although it was Stressful Likely, it Was Helpful as Well.

    Good People in My Book.

    These are good debates. I will say neither is a bad choice but I was impreseed that overall, the A10-5800K was a better performer than the 3220K and priced right.

    Sadly no $400 build is going to be as you call it "High end gaming", if you can do $417 try this for size (just thought I would cause some more trouble really :)).....

    I had Heard that before Starting this post, and you Can see for yourself AMD was My first choice. But I digress, Since My knowledge in the AMD field is LESS than Adequate.
