Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual Core 8GB DDR3 1333 500GB STAT 11 Memory 3MB L3 Cache
AMD FX-Series FX-4100 3.6GHz Quad Core 8GB DDR3 1333 1TB STAT 11 Memory 4MB L2 Cache
In both I would be running a AMD Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card...
@Emerron that somewhat right but I will better explain everything. Yes the FX series uses 2 CPU's per module but that is still a Quad Core. The issue is, they only have 1 floating point per modular so you can't fully benefit from the max performance because of the bottleneck of only 2 floating points.
Also to add, the bulldozer series, any FX-X(with a 1 or 2 as the second digit) has many issues with itself. It has low instructions per cycle, and is plagued by too many execution pipelines. Combined with low IPC's this creates a terrible snowball effect in a bad way. Also the cache latency is extremely high adding lag between execution of L1 and L2 and some degree of L2 to L3.
However, if you find an FX series processor with a 3 as a second digit, IE FX-4300, many of these said issues have been corrected. However given the 2 examples you've given get the I3, add that GPu and be done with it. However if your PSU can hold it, an HD 7770Ghz would be a nicer buy.
