Solved i5 2500k or fx 8120 for photoshop?

December 8, 2012 at 02:30:44
Specs: Win 7 32, 4

I am planning to buy one in two days...

Main purpose will be photo editing using photoshop (cs3 currently), will be upgrading later.

I am looking forward to video editing if possible. (not sure in current situation)

I just want to know whether fx can perform well with eight cores.. or is it just another hyperthreading from amd?

Core i5 2500K is still better than core i5 3570 because of overclocking ability. Get core i5 3570 if u don't want to OC.

The video card listed is not that good for video editing but it is better option for tight budget.

Get 8GB or 16GB of ddr3 1600 1.5v.

Get a 550 - 650W unit from corsair or rosewill or antec.

"I have everything else"
I f u have everything else why asking about two different processors?
Core i5 2500K require a motherboard with INTEL chipset and FX 8350 require mainboard with AMD chipset.

"and i dont want to overclock it.."
All INTEL and AMD CPU's ending with K they were designed with overclocking in mind. If done right OC will not harm anything.

List the hardware u have already bought.
