    Hi there i can't decide over:

    ------Intel i3 540
    ------AMD Phenom II x4 945

    I will use my pc for photo editing while surfing the net, office apps,watching HD videos and sometimes but not that often play games like Mass effect 2, Monday night madness, and Need for speed Hot Pursuit.

    I will also Purchase:
    For the AMD: ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AMD 870 / SB850 DDR3
    For the Intel: GIGABYTE GA-H55M-S2H HDMI/GLAN /DDR3
    -2 GB Geil DDR3 1333mHz
    -ATI HD 5570 1gb Graphics card
    -600w PSU

    I plan to stick with the processor's stock fan if its good.

    Can anyone help me decide between the 2 processors and suggest anything that might be better at the same budget. Can you please comment on their stock fans and the motherboards too.

    Thank you so much for the help..
