Intel Core i5 3470 - 3.2GHz - 1MB L2 - 6MB L3 or the AMD FX-8320 - 3.5GHz - 8MB L2 - 8MB L3 Which would you guys recomend for an audio PC. Obviously this is not a professional build. Its for my home PC, but I would like to run as plug ins as possible. Plus midi. I will of course be using ssds and lots of memory but from a processor point of view I must admit I am a little confused. The Amd has 8 cores, but isnt the I chip the best on the market?
