I'm building a destkop and working somewhat on a budget. I have came down to 2 CPUS that I can choose from. I need to know which one of these CPU's would perform better and faster. The AMD APU A8 - 7600 or the Intel i3 - 4160? The AMD has more cores but on certain websites I see that they say that the Intel out performs the AMD. This to me is very strange as the AMD has more cores.
Also, if I buy an AMD FX processor, do I need to buy a GPU for displaying my screen, because I dont see that the FX has graphics. Correct me on this if I'm wrong.
NOTE: I'm mainly going to use this computer for computing numbers, working out mathmatical stuff and do a lot of intesive encrypting and decrypting of my network data etc... Not really graphics at all.
