I'm not sure in terms of the Cpu, which would be better for gaming, Photoshop stuff such as photo editing / digital painting, and Illustrator
I made two builds, one that has an AMD CPU and the other Intel. Both are pretty much the same just with different CPU and Mobo
*AMD version- http://pcpartpicker.com/user/TheSirStoic/saved/cqYLrH
*Intel version- http://pcpartpicker.com/user/TheSirStoic/saved/8syV3C
So the question, Is there any significant difference between these two cpu's besides price? If Intel is better by a good margin, would you spend the extra money for that build version?
My budget is $1250..... so going with intel would put me over budget when i add windows 8.1
If you got any info on this stuff, then please go ahead and help me out. If you think my build sucks then drop a comment. :D
