List of dedicated gaming CPUs
  

I am assembling a new rig and below is what I am decided so far :
  • Motherboard - ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
  • Ram - Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 16GB 1600MHz
  • GPU - AMD Radeon HD 6770
  • PSU - Cooler Master 1200W
I have decided the cou, I have gone through some choices but I don’t know which one will be best according to these components, I will be using it for hardcore gaming so I am looking after dedicated gaming CPU, So is there anyone who can suggest List of dedicated ones so that I can make my final choice from them?

Re: List of dedicated gaming CPUs

I think you can get anyone from the below ones:
  • Intel Core i5-2500k
  • Intel Core i7-2600k
  • Intel Core i7-3770
  • Intel Core i7-3770k
  • AMD FX-8120
  • AMD FX-8150
Personally I will suggest you to get AMD FX-8150 as AMD processors are found to be better than Intel as far as gaming is concerned.

Re: List of dedicated gaming CPUs

I agree that Intel processors are better than AMD processors but I don’t when it is about gaming. Intel processors have found to be leaving AMD behind in the race of performance and overclocking but this scenario takes an u-turn in race of gaming. I don’t think any hardcore game will suggest Intel processors, I am in to gaming and I try out almost all the latest games that I like and my Athlon II x3 450 has never disappointed me. I will suggest you to get anyone form the below ones:
  • AMD Phenom II X6 1045T
  • AMD Phenom II X4 975 BE
  • AMD FX-Series FX-4170
  • AMD FX-Series FX-6100
