Planning on building a new system and can't quite decide om whether to go with Intel or AMD.
It will be used for office work and web browsing. Building with gaming in mind makes no sense seing as the games I bought in the last two years are still collecting dust on the shelf
Quite frankly I'm not really in the market for a 250$ CPU so I'm looking into either a Core i3 or an AMD A10.
I plan on the following:
Case: Cooler Master Silencio 352
HDD: 128 gigabyte SSD (Samsung, Plextor, OCZ)
RAM: 4 GB
Motherboard: depending on CPU
CPU: Core i3-3240 or AMD A10-5700
Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo or Noctua NH-L12
Will the Core i3 suffice for day to day work?
Any Motherboard recommendations? For Intel an H77 model will easily do what I need it to.
Edit: In case it makes a difference, I plan on running Ubuntu on this system.
