What CPU(APU)/MOBO combo for GW2/Diablo 3


Nov 14, 2012
Hello, I am starting a new build and I was wondering what the best Mobo/CPU combo would be best for Some modern games such as GW2/Diablo 3. I am not a FPS junkie and don't normally game in 1080P, however I do wish to have enjoyable playable experiences with at minimum MEDIUM graphics settings. I have heard that Intel Processors are faster for single threaded actions(Whatever that means) but is that to say the AMD is terrible? Help please!
