    CPU Choices

    I was wondering if I should get the Intel Core i7-3930K (12M Cache, up to 3.80 GHz) , the Intel Core i7-3770K (8M Cache, up to 3.90 GHz) or the AMD FX 8150 (8M Cache, up to 4.2 GHz). I know the AMD is the fastest but what impact does cache size have? Preferably I would like a choice between the Intels as they are less expensive.

    Can I get a reason? Would you choose the AMD FX over the 3770?

    Blah
    It depends on what you are doing with your computer.

    For gaming: i7-3930K
    Most games are only able to use 2 cores, the i7's power is split between 6 cores and the AMD's between 8 cores. That means more power per core in the i7.
    The only engine i think is capable of using more than 2 cores is the Frostbite 3 engine, and no major game has been released with that engine yet.

    If you look here PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End you can see that the i7 performs better in their test.

    The AMD is better for hosting servers and rendering movies or 3D graphic.

    I don't know where you live, but in Denmark the Intels costs more than twice of the AMD's.

    The AMD is 300 USD in Denmark and the Intels are around 800 USD.

    You usually say that AMD is better value, but Intel is better.
