I can't decide which one of these processors I should buy? I do some gaming, but its really just browsing the internet and some photoshop. Anyone have any opinions on which one I should get?

Hello again Jake85r

 

My my you have been seriously thinking it over havn`t you  :)  October 11th 2013

 

Levity apart, both are very good CPUs and way surpass your intended use, the AMD CPU has 8 cores, is fast, less expensive but has a higher TDP and so will create more heat, the 4670k is 4th generation and so future proof for a few years and it uses less power so creates less heat, the stock i5 4670 is less expensive than the k version due to the cores being locked, this is not a concern to you as you will not be overclocking in any event.

 

Consider the pros and cons that I mention and then ask yourself if your intended use is likely to change in the coming years, if you decided to take up rendering videos or a career in CAD then the 8 core 8350 would be the way to go, if not the stock i5 4670 is a worthy contender.
