Intel i3-2120 vs AMD A6-3670K

  kraftmasterC 23:33 PM 10 Jan 13

Hi there I have a choice of two systems one a intel based i3-2120 dual core and the other a AMD A6-3670K quad core. I am on budget and need to get one of these machines on credit (hence only two options). I will use the computer for some gaming (nothing hardcore just TotalWar games really) and graphic design plus any other general use. I plan on getting a dedicated graphics card at some point in the future and read the AMD has better on board graphics - but am I am in a dilemma. They both have same RAM and HDD specs and the price is only £70 difference (Intel more). Just wondering which way to go as I have read the A6 isn't as upgradable (this will be important) due to L2 cache, plus with a dedicated card the i3 will outperform? The AMD has quad core and has crossfire on it's side.

Any advice would be truly appreciated.
