Intel chips are faster. However, if you have an 8350 already, spending $220 or more for an intel chip isn't worth it. And DX12 isn't going to be used for quite a while, at least not required. Just get an AMD board, use the 8350 for a few years, then go for whatever is the best at that time. The 8350 will suit you just fine until then. --- http://penguinpetes.com/gallery/MyWalls/pigeon_chess.png
At this point in time with dx12 on the way I would invest in the i5. Idr the model numbers off the top of my head but the unlocked 4 core is plenty good. If you can afford it go for the 4770k. It will have higher resale too.
Only reason I say that is because dx12 is supposed to start actually using the cpu in games. A amd chip could hold you back..maybe not..
If you have the money why not, maybe look into a new 290 graphics card..pc gaming is awful when you have to build mid tier systems imo.
If you mean 4770k that's the i7 which is around $500 which is a bit pricey for me, unless you mean the 3570k I think it is
A 4770k for 500? Where are you shopping at? They should be like 300-330 max. --- We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong. We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.
