AMD is most likely the cheaper option and would still be fine, make sure you have a motherboard with a AM3+ socket if you intend to buy the AMD, for the Intel an LGA1150 socket is required. Both would do perfectly and a better CPU won't really give a lot more frames in games. Intel is the gamers choice while AMD is the choice of the average pc user, but it basicly boils down to personal taste. I would go for the AMD.

I'd take the i3 as the better performer for normal usage as normal usage will not utilize all 6 of the FX's core effectively, and anytime you're using 4 cores or less, which is like 90% of the time, the i3 will be faster, and quieter. The i3 is also likely cheaper to use, and I'm not even talking about power usage. I'm talking about to buy from the start. Intel's "cheap" motherboards are of a better quality than AMD's "cheap" motherboards. You'd find yourself paying more for an AM3+ motherboard than you would a LGA1150 one. You would also find yourself buying an aftermarket cooler for the FX, but not for the i3.

I won't say it will help, but it may or may not give a very little fps boost. but I somehow agree with Cturbo, go for the i3 if all you are going to do is to play games :)
