My System Specs


If the 8350 is competitive with an i5 in gaming applications, I'll make the move. I already have an upgrade path (AM3+ motherboard), so I'd simply be looking at the price of the chip alone.

That, however, is a pretty big IF.

If it doesn't meet expectations however, looks like I'll finally have to break down my Intel resistance and treat myself to an Ivy chip.
