I'm really torn between getting the I5-2500k and the AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE. This computer is being made completely from scratch, and I've done a lot of ready but I'm still no expert on knowing the difference between CPUs...so heres what I want and hopefully you guys can help me know what route to take as far as my CPU
-I want to be able to play every game out there on highest settings, maybe turned down a little bit for the highest ones
-I want to be able to plug it into my HDTV for movies (don't know if CPU choice affects this very much)
-I plan on overclocking for sure, but a moderate, safe amount. Nothing extreme.
I'm really trying to save money because I'm buying all these parts at once using as many black friday sales as possible, but I also want to keep it future proof. I already plan on getting a pretty decent GPU, maybe a 7870. I CAN afford the 2500k, but if I can achieve what I want and be able to save the 100$+ That would be awesome. Also I'm open to other AMD cards, the 965 BE is just the one I've heard the most good things about. THANKS ALOT for any help.
