make it equal money & AMD wins with better graphics & a small overclock will kill this i5 in rendering & video & most shit is going past 4 cores, like to 8 as we speak. My PII 965 pegs my new oc'd R9 270 100% in all games I havel A 6300 will do better. Graphics is most important. BTW most games are fine at 3.4 gig rarely do I goto 3.9. and vid is ansio 16 4xAA 1920 X 1040 etc all maxed and Pii is still a-ok.
