AMD 7850K APU or Intel i3 with 750 ti?

All things considered: RAM speed and mobo.

The AMD one is cheaper despite faster RAM. What do you think is better in terms of performance and price point?

AMD

Intel

no idea what that is but im assuming its a game, do not get a dual core cpu (i3)if budget is tight get a lower end i5 even at that you can get a pretty good i5 for about 180-190 i believe.

Uh not true, league of legends is a relatively untaxing game. I believe you can run it on intel integrated graphics

that may be but will do nothign for future proofing him and for the difference in cost if he has a few extra pennies there is no reason in the world to get an i3

Going with the APU :) DISCRETE class graphics (yes I have benchmarked em, league plays surprisingly well), quad core, all on the same die :)

People hate based on what experience? Most of them are fan boys, but a few are there to genuinely dissuade you from getting garbage that breaks your garbage.
