Hello everyone. So my friend wants a computer and I said I would pick parts and build for him as he gets the money. So currently he just wants to game and do everyday things. He is an average user and don't think he will be doing anything more intensive.
So I have these parts locked in (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/s7BWzy) but I cannot pick out a CPU (and mobo because of obvious reasons lol.) He would like the price to be as low as possible. Right now I am juggling between an Intel i3 or an FX processor. I did not want to go down the A-Series route as the budget would most likely allow for a 750 Ti. Our local Microcenter has an i3 4150 available for $100.
Would you guys recommend an AMD (our microcenter also has a FX 4130 for about $40) or Intel. I am an Intel fanboy so I didn't want to decide as I want him to get the best performance for the money he has been working for.
