Hey Rabi,

 

First, let's start with a comparison between an i3 (there are different types of i3 though, so some may be better/worse than the one in this link) and the AMD FX-6350 : http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i3-3220-vs-AMD-FX-6350

 

As you can see there the AMD is rated a little bit better in certain synthetic benchmarks. But in real world applications (especially games), Intel tends to do a bit better.

 

Most games are coded to use 1, 2, or 4 threads. The performance per thread is generally higher for Intel processors, so even though the AMD processor has 2 more threads,(4 threads for Intel, 6 for AMD) they won't get used by many games. And if it comes down to a game using 4 Intel threads or 4 AMD threads, the Intel will come out ahead every time.

 

The benchmarks are programmed to use 8 or more threads, so that's why the AMD processor seems to do better, but in the real world where not so many threads are usually utilized, the i3 will do better. So that's why there's a difference in benchmark vs real world performance.

 

So I would go with the i3! I hope that made sense! :)

 

And by the way, if you could swing an i5 processor instead of the i3, that would be awesome. I have an older i5 (Sandy Bridge 2400) and it runs all of my games great.
