Hey guys, im new to toms hardware. Wanted to ask for your opinion on which CPU i should get?
im willing to spend on a CPU around $150-230. iam seeking for a CPU that can over clock very well as well as low power consumption.

FX-8150 is a little bit better than 2500k, however 8150 using 8cores where as 2500k 4cores, fx-8150 is better in only multi-threaded apps rendering like stuff, if games then 2500k is the way to go, OP did not benefit from extra 4 cores in games it is just totally waste.
