Sooooo...... I haven't been able to use Maya much (at all) for the last couple months as my pc is getting pretty old and at time I get ridiculously low frame rates when I use Maya (can't play games at all, except LoL at lowest setting).

So I went online in hopes for a cheap upgrade and found some great deals on TRADEME! For around 800-900 for a decent rig.

But I found I can choose between 2 options (the latter system is the same) between Intel i7 4770 4 Core and AMD FX 8350 8 Core.

I read reviews online where the i7 is actually better than FX even with 4 less cores. With single thread programs running way better and so on.

So I want to ask which would be best to run Maya/Photoshop etc and maybe play a bit of BF3 aswell.

Related system specs below.
16GB RAM
2GB Asus GT 630 or Intel HD 6300

Which CPU could I utilize the most with these specs?

Quite simply if your on a tight budget, Amd will give you more bang for your buck. If you can afford the extra 100-200 intel will cost you... Go with the i7.

Gpu... The bigger to better. Of the 2 cards you have mentioned definitely the Asus!
