This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

Is this build OK for some video editing and some gaming?

The i3 would be better than the Phenom II at any rate, so even if the i3 does bottleneck, it won't be as bad as the Phenom II.


That's just untrue. An i3 2100 butts head with a PII at 3.7GHz or so. Not to mention the Phenom II x4s will just usually win in multi-threaded applications. Not to mention you can OC with the 965 and easily hit 3.8GHz

I'll give you that the PII is better in multi threaded apps (it does have more cores after all), but the i3 seems better in most other applications, especially games.

what you feel is simply out of touch with the objective reality of the situation. we can't help it if Intel presents not only better, more consistent performance, but also a better value at every single performance segment. people on this board did not create the situation, AMD and Intel did. since buying a pc is sort of an investment and people typically keep them for longer than a few months, you'd be outright stupid to know better and choose worse. and it would be socially irresponsible for people who know better to not inform those who genuinely think they can win with AMD right now. it's not possible. even the platform (am3/am3+) is a dated waste of money. here's some BF3 cpu benchmarks: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2011/11/10/battlefield-3-technical-analysis/7

cpu isn't a big deal, especially at 1080p, but the only ones that suffer from being a dual core are amd cpus.
